A plant breeder has generated a hybrid plant with pink flowers from one true-breeding parent that produces red flowers and another true-breeding parent that produces white flowers. Due to the popularity of the pink-flowered variety with her customers, she would like to mass produce the pink-flowered plant.

What are some strategies she may use to propagate the pink-flowered plant reproducibly, producing only pink-flowered offspring? Select ALL that apply.

A

Allowing the pink-flowered plant to self-pollinate would produce only pink-flowered offspring.

B

Pollinating the white-flowered parent with pollen from the red-flowered parent would produce only pink-flowered offspring.

C

Pollinating the red-flowered parent with pollen from the white-flowered parent would produce only pink-flowered offspring.

D

Taking cuttings from the pink-flowered plants and allowing them to develop would produce only pink-flowered offspring.

E

Taking cuttings from the red-flowered plants and allowing them to develop would produce only pink-flowered offspring.

F

Pollinating one pink-flowered plant with pollen from another pink-flowered plant would produce only pink-flowered offspring.
