heres the question, I totally don't understand it:
a few sex linked ttraits in humans are located on the Y chromosome and are dominant. What pattern of inheritence would uou expect to see in these traits? show your exmaplantion.
If the traits are on the y-chromosome, and are DOMINANT...that means that ALL the offspring BOYS will have the trait, but NONE of the offspring GIRLS will have the trait. Do you see why?
is it because in order for there to be a boy the dad would have to give a y because a mom can only give x and since the y is domiannt it would always express the trait>?
Yes, absolutely right!!!
Thanks so much :)
