The following is a schematic representation of a hypothetical pathway involved in formation of eye color in an insect species. White White pigment X pigment Y Converted by product of gene 'A Converted by product of gene 'B' Vermillion pigment L Brown pigment Mix of both the pigments leads to red eye color. Genes A and B are linked and have a map distance of 10cM. Females with genotypes a abb are test crossed. Further, in these females, the two genes are linked in cis. a and b represent wild type alleles, while a and b are null alleles. The progeny of the test cross have individuals with four different eye colours What is the expected ratio of individuals with eye color Red: Vermillion: Brown: White in the progeny? a) 9:3:3:1 b) 1:1:1:1 c) 9:1:1:9 d) 1:9:9:1 [CSIR NET JUNE 2017
