Answer #1

PKU is an autosomal recessive genetic disorder, that means both copies of the gene are mutated in each cell. It is an inherited disorder where there is increased levels of phenylalanine present in the blood, ehich means reduced metabolism of phenylalanine. When both parents are heterozygous (carriers) for PKU, then 25% chance that children will inherit PKU, a 50% chance that child will be a carrier, and a 25% chance that child will neither inherit disorder nor be a carrier.

therefore, if parents are homozygous dominant, then there will be 0% chance of offspring that inherit PKU.

answer would be a) i.e. 0%

Sickle cell anemia is a genetic blood disorder where red blood
cells lose their flexibility and assume an abnormal, rigid, sickle
shape, which results in a risk of various complications. If both
parents are carriers of the disease, then a child has a 25% chance
of having the disease, 50% chance of being a carrier, and 25%
chance of neither having the disease nor being a carrier. If two
parents who are carriers of the disease have 4 children, what...
