• question_answer175)                 Albinism is known to be due to an autosomal recessive mutation. The first child of a couple with normal skin pigmentation was an albino. What is the probability that their second child will also be an albino?

A)
100%

B)
25%

C)
50%

D)
75%             Since albinism is a recessive character, a child will be albino only if it is homozygous for albinism genes. Since parents have normal skin, it means they are heterozygous. As a result of cross between two heterozygous parents, 25% of the children will be homozygous recessive. The nature of the second child is not affected in any way by the nature of the first child because both are independent events.
