Question 17 Unsaved

 

National Basketball Association (NBA) scientists have identified the gene for superior athletic ability.  The allele “A” represents the dominant form of the gene, while the allele “a” represents the recessive form of the gene.  The scientists find that the superior athletic ability gene is optimally expressed in individuals who possess the homozygous dominant form.

 

If Michael Jordan, who has the Aa genotype, has a child with a woman who has the aa genotype, what are the chances that his child will inherit the optimal superior athletic ability genotype?
