What type of blood is the dad?
I have a problems with a question for genetics. If the child has a type A blood and the mom B blood. What is the dad's blood type? AB or A?

In fact, Dad could be AB or A.
Obviously, the kid got his A from Dad, not from Mom.
That just means that Dad has an A allele. But Dad could have a B as well, or not.
BTW, AA and AO are not blood types; they are genotypes. Both are type A.
AB is both a genotype and a type, AB.

dad is AA or AO
A and B have partial dominance. O is recessive.
So if the kid is A, he could not have gotten it from mom because mom is B not AB.
The kids A came from dad, but you can't tell if dad is AA or AO. You would answer A_Source(s): genetics major
