it's going to be 50% answer C. Colourblindness is recessive. Parental genotypes are going to be \[X ^{C}X ^{c} \] from mother and \[X ^{c}Y\] from mother. Here there are @ sons and @ daughters. Nut out of the 2 daughters one will be colour blind and the other one will be heterozygote. Hence we take it as 50%

@rushwr It is not just because it is recessive. The gene(s) involved are only on the X chromosome. Males only have 1 X chromosome so if they have faulty gene(s) they will always pass this along to their daughter. Females have 2 X chromosomes and now the dom/res gene thing comes into play.

yeah that is not what I meant ! Isn't it a fact that all the sex linked disorders involves X chromosomes only.

@Rushwr There are some Y linked diseases. Most are not terrible because those usually die out as all men with it would be affected. You still need to know both if it is dom/res and the relationship with the sex chromosomes. If it was a dominant mutation then all the daughters of the couple would have it, despite the heterozygocity of the mother. Since it is now, only 50% will.
