Question:
If two white guinea pigs produced only white offspring. Which gene is dominant and which is recessive and why?



Replies:
It's probably recessive since only white are produced, however if the white guinea pigs are both homozygous dominant they would also produce only white offspring. So you need more information to say for sure.
