A. an allele for red flowers on both homologous chromosomes B. two alleles for red flowers on one homologous chromosome, and two alleles for blue flowers on the other C. an allele for purple flowers on both homologous chromosomes D. an allele for red flowers on one homologous chromosome, and an allele for blue flowers on the other

The answer is D. This is an exmaple of incomplete dominance. Red and blue make purple. Because there is no purple alleles, C is false. Because there you can only have 2 alleles total B is false. A is false because having two red alleles makes a red flower.
