Question 1

If an X-linked disorder is lethal to the affected individual prior to the age at which one reaches reproductive maturation, the lethality will be expressed only in males. Why is this so?

Question 2

Below is a pedigree of a fairly common human hereditary trait in which the boxes represent males and the circles represent females. Shading symbolizes the abnormal phenotype.

Given that one gene pair is involved:
(a) Is the inheritance pattern X-linked or autosomal, recessive, or dominant?
(b) Give the genotype of each individual in the pedigree. If more than one genotypic possibility exists, present all possible alternatives.
