Parents    Phenotypes    Male                                      Female

                 Genotypes     44A + XY                                44A + XX

Gametes                      22A + X 22A+Y                      22A + A22A + X

                                         22A+ X               22A+X

Children   22A + X    44A + XX           44 A + XY    Female

                   22A + Y      44 A + XY          44 A + XY    Male

Sex ratio  Female : Male = 1 :  1
