One type of colorblindness is a recessive, sexlinked trait that is carried on the X chromosome. If a colorblind woman and a man who is not colorblind had children, what chance would there be that their son would be colorblind?
0%
25%
50%
or 100%?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think it would be 25% because one parent is colorblind and one is not. so like a 50/50 chance?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well if one of them is fully on recessive and one of them is fully dominant then that would be 100% dominance because if you put this in a pedigree chart then everything would come out Xx which means that dominant would take over all 4 squares.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So if colorblindness is recessive but the next child would be fully dominant...this means that the child would have a 0% of being colorblind since the Punnet Square would reveal your child would have no colorblindness and the medal and fan to me would be much appreciated. Thankyou
