    Hi all, just got really stuck on a question which should be simple but I'm still trying to get my head around the ideas

    The colour of a plant's flowers is controlled by alleles at three loci. The flowers show a range of colours from deep red to white; the larger the number of R alleles inherited the darker the flowers.
    If a deep red homozygous plant is crossed with a white homozygous plant it produces pink plants.
    What will the genotypes of the parents and offspring be? Assuming the deep red alleles are R¹ R² R³ and the white alleles are r¹ r² r³?

    I know it's a bit long winded but any help would be appreciated!

    The parents will be R1R1 R2R2 R3R3 and r1r1 r2r2 r3r3

    The offspring will be R1r1 R2r2 R3r3

    Ah thank you! I think it was the wording that confused me but should have been simple
