2. A woman with type A blood is claiming that a man with type AB blood is the father of her child who is type B. Show ALL the possible crosses. Could this man be the father of the child? If yes, How? Assuming that he is the father, what must the mother’s genotype be?

    Yes, it is possible. If the mother's genotype is AO she will have the ABO blood group A. Her children can receive an A-allele or an O-allele from her. If the father is ABO blood group AB his genotype will be AB. He can give his children an A-allele or a B-allele.

    If the child were to receive an O-allele from the mother and a B-allele from the father the child's genotype will be BO and the child will have ABO blood group B.
