Here's a two-parter.
  1. Describe this person's karyotype in the form of (46, XY)
  2. Is there anything wrong with this person? If so, what is the name of the disorder?

Okay. Here goes: A male with blood type A marries a woman with blood type AB. They have four children. List the genotypes and phenotypes of these four children.
I took first at 2013 States as a 6th grader in Meteorology!!!

2014 State Results:

Anatomy: 2nd
Can't Judge A Powder: 9th
Crime Busters: 1st
Heredity: 3rd
Meteorology: 3rd
Sounds of Music: 2nd

2015 Events: Anatomy, Crave The Wave, Crime Busters, Experimental Design, Meteorology, Picture This

Since the genotype of the male isn't specified, he can have two possible genotypes.
If the male has a genotype of AA, then the four children would be:
Genotype- 2:2 (50% AA, 50% AB)
Phenotype- 2:2 (50% type A, 50% type AB)

If the male has a genotype of AO, then the four children would be:
Genotype- 1:1:1:1 (25% AA, 25% AO, 25% AB, 25% BO)
Phenotype: 2:1:1 (50% type A, 25% type AB, 25% type B)
MLKHS '18
MIT '22

Expectations low, hopes high
