A male with hemophilia (XhY) mates with a woman who does not carry the hemophiliac gene (X HXH ). Use a Punnett square

is it possible for a female to be a hemophiliac? What are the possible phenotypes of the parents?

Answer:

XhY * XHXH = XHXh , XHXh, XHY, XHY. 50% of their offspring will be females that won’t be hemophiliacs but will have it as a recessive part of the gene since they will be heterozygous females
