5. Blood type is determined by the I gene, which encodes an enzyme that adds a specific glycoprotein to red blood cells. Individuals with the genotypes IAIA and IAi have Type A blood. An individual with the genotypes IBIB and IBi have Type B blood. Individuals with the genotype IAIB have Type AB blood while individuals with the genotype ii have Type O blood. What is the probability that a man with type AB blood and a woman with type A blood, whose mother is type O, would produce a child that is each of the following:
