How do Mendel’s experiments show that traits are inherited independently?

Answer :

Mendel took two pairs of alternate expressions of two traits and carried out hybrid crosses by crossing them and named the traits that appeared in the first generation as dominant. When he used these \( F_1 \) progeny to generate \( F_2 \) progeny by self-pollination, plants of different types were produced and saw that in some plants both the traits were dominant, while in some plants both were recessive and some plants exhibited mixed traits. This indicates that traits are inherited independently.
