    A daughter will be color blind because the father is a carrier of the recessive allele. A son will be color blind because the mother is a carrier of the recessive allele. A daughter will not be color blind because the father is not a carrier of the recessive allele. A son will be color blind because the father’s mother must have been a carrier for recessive allele.

    fathers are not carriers and i think it is more common in sons than daughters :)

    C. A daughter will not be color blind because the father is not a carrier of the recessive allele.
