Hi guys i've recieved this homework on genetics for A level biology and its really hard!!!

Labrador dogs vary in the colours of their coats. The most familiar colours are black or yellow (golden). Chocolate (brown) is slightly less common and the rarest of all combines different colours in patches and is called brindled.
Coat colour is controlled by alleles at two loci.
The colour locus alleles are B (black), br (brindled) and b (chocolate). The dominance hierarchy is B > br > b.
The second locus has two alleles. E allows expression of the colour locus so that dark hairs develop. Its recessive counterpart prevents the expression of dark hairs so the coat colour remains yellow.
A family tree of some Labradors is shown in Figure 1.

1) Identify the pattern of genetic inheritance shown by :
a) the coat colour locus
b) the action of locus E

Many thanks!
