Question 56 - Science Practice Test for the TEAS

Referring to the passage, tell why it was important that Gregor Mendel used a large number of plants in his experiments into genetics and heredity?

Gregor Mendel used pea plants to conduct experiments on genetics and heredity. He grew approximately 29,000 plants to study seven characteristics: flower color, seed texture, seed color, stem length, pod color, pod texture, and flower position. Mendel was able to demonstrate that these characteristics were passed from one generation to the next and that the offspring could inherit the characteristics from either one, or from both, of the parent plants.
