I would really appreciate it if you could please walk me through you had approached to the answer. Thanks!

Jacob selected eight closely linked lac- mutants (called lac-I to lac-8) and then attempted to order the mutations with respect to the outside markers pro (proline) and ade (adenine) by performing a pair of reciprocal crosses for each pair of lac mutants: Cross Cross 2 Hfr pro- lac-x ade+ X F- pro+ lac-y ade- Hfr pro- lac-y ade+ X F-pro+ lae-x ade- In all cases, prototrophs were selected by plating on a minimal medium with lactose as the sole carbon source. The table shows the number of colonies in each set of reciprocal crosses. Determine the relative order of the mutations Briefly explain your logic | lac-x Cross 1 173 156 46 30 168 37 Cross 2 27 34 218 197 32 215 lac-х lac-y lac-y Cross 1 Cross 2 226 24 153 20 205 40 187 17 175 17 34 199
