Blood Types Problem Set
Problem 1: Is a type O possible in this situation?
Could you please help me? I have a question that is NOT a homework
question. I am a Junior in High School. "Could a man with type B blood and a woman with type AB produce a child with type O blood?"
I think not, because type O is recessive, and the B's seem to be
dominant. My cousin thinks yes. Thank you for your help. -- Vicki
Dr. Hallick's reply:
The children of a man with type B blood and a woman with type AB blood could be type A, type B, and type AB, but not type O.
