Harry Potter Wizard Tongue Rolling Dihybrid Genetics 2018

Harry & Hermione Potter Genetics problem
(Relax, I know, they didn’t get married in the books. This is a “what if” question).
In humans there is a dominant gene for being a Wizard (W) which means you can do magic and
cast spells. There is also a gene for not being able to do magic or cast spells (w). People who
can’t do magic are called Muggles. Tongue rolling (T) is dominant over non-tongue rolling (t).
Harry is a Wizard who can roll his tongue. Hermione, his wife, is a non tongue-rolling Wizard.
Their first child is a poor, sad, non-rolling Muggle. Show the punnett square (or rectangle) for
Harry and Hermione that could give them this child, and give the expected phenotypic ratios
for all their possible children.
