Solution

The correct option is A Recessive
Out of the two contrasting characters of parents, only one would appear in the first generation (F1 ). This character which was expressed in the progenies of F1 generation is called the dominant character, and the other character which remained hidden was the recessive character. Recessive character was expressed in the F2 generation.
