Solution :-

Incomplete dominance is when a dominant allele does not completely mask the effects of a recessive allele, and the organism’s resulting physical appearance shows a blending of both alleles. It is also called semi-dominance or partial dominance. E.g. Flower colour in snapdragon plant. Red flower colour (R) is incompletely dominant over the white(r). When both alleles R and r are present together, R is unable to completely suppress r and therefore the resulting phenotype is pink colour flower.
