Question

If the father is unaffected by an X linked recessive disorder then his daughters will also not inherit the disorder.



Correct Answer
A

True

Your Answer
B

False


Solution

The correct option is B

True


Father, being a male, has only one X chromosome. If he is unaffected, it means the X chromosome he passes on to the next generation is normal. All the daughters will inherit the normal X chromosome from him. Hence the daughters will not be affected. But they can become carriers if they receive defective X chromosome from mother.
