Mendel's ability to control crosses between plants was a critical innovation that helped assure the success of his breeding experiments. What is the effect of emasculating the flowers by removing the anthers?

Removing the anthers prevents cross-pollination, thus assuring self-pollination for self-fertilization of the F1generation.

Removing the anthers prevents both self-pollination and cross-pollination; thus, plants will not breed and can be observed as a control.

Removal of the anthers had no effect on pollination, but was necessary for observing one of the seven dichotomous traits Mendel chose to study.

Removing the anthers prevents self-pollination, but cross-pollination is still possible.
