A fruit fly that is heterozygous for two genes (BbCc) is crossed with a homozygous recessive individual (bbcc). If the genes were closely linked on the same chromosome, then which of the following would be true of the offspring in this cross?

    The proportions of offspring would be similar to those expected in a cross involving two genes that are on separate chromosomes.
    We would get more offspring that have the same phenotype as one of the parents and fewer offspring that are phenotypically different from the parents.
    We would expect a 1:1:1:1 phenotypic ratio.
