considering they mention 'carriers', it's clear that colourblindness is some sort of recessive trait, and a quick Google search confirms that it's X-linked. so the man is colorblind and is thus X^a Y where X^a is the recessive trait while the woman is X^A X^A since she is not a carrier. now cross:
so the two females will be carriers but otherwise asymptomatic while the males will all be normal type; none of the children have colour blindness, but all the daughters are carriers
