    Albino: cc

    Normal Pigment: CC or Cc

    The Albino man would be cc (homozygous recessive) as he has albinism. The mother would be either CC or Cc, but since their offspring are all normally pigmented then she would be CC (homozygous dominant) which means their offspring would be Cc (heterozygous). If the woman had been Cc then some of the children would have had albinism.
