(B) If, however, both of the dominant characters go in with one 
parent, and neither with the other parent, they tend to remain 
associated in F,; thus :—

In such a cross the classes resembling the two original parents 
tend to be produced in excess, while the other two combinations are 
produced much more rarely. Nevertheless, the ratio of dark to light 
axil, and of fertile to sterile anthers, is, in each case, a simple 3 : 1 
ratio.Example of association of characters in heredity. 
Purple flower colour is dominant to red in the sweet pea, and the 
old-fashioned erect form of standard with the central notch is dominant 
to the hooded. In families where these characters are involved, the 
nature of the F2 generation depends upon the manner in which the 
cross was made.
