It is said that Mendel proposed that the factor controlling any character is discrete and independent. His proposition was based on the
A. results of F3 generation of a cross.
B. observations that the offspring of a cross made between the plants having two contrasting characters shows only one character without any blending.
C. self pollination of F1 offsprings
D. cross pollination of F1 generation with recessive parent
There was no blending of characters or traits in the progeny. That is, when a tall and a short plant were crossed, no medium height plants were observed. That meant that the factors (genes) were discrete (individually separate) and independent of each other.
