Answer :

Mendel’s Law of independent assortment holds good for genes situated on the homologous chromosomes that is when two different genes are on separate chromosomes. When the genes are located on same chromosome in distance; during segregation they will segregate independently into the gametes. But if two genes are located on same chromosome, due to linkage they will segregate together during meiosis and produce only 2 kinds of gametes.
