50% because the male and female would both have the chance

The hybrid is the offspring so the probability is 1.

Probability is used in genetics to determine the possibilities of offspring having a particular trait

you have a 50/50 chance of producing both a male and female offspring, it really depends on whether or not your offspring's DNA will have XY chromosomes (male) or XX chromosomes (female)

100% of all male offspring will be colorblind. 0% of all femal offspring will be colorblind.

There are factors such as genetic tendencies, age etc which favour male or female offspring so that the probability of a male offspring is not uniformally 1/2. Next, the question does not specify how many offspring in all, so the possible sequences could be [any sequence whether or not containing MMM] followed by [MMM] followed by [any sequence whether or not containing MMM]. As the sequence grows longer, the probability that somewhere in the sequence there are 3 male offspring in a row increases. For 3 offspring, the probability is 1/8 = 0.125 for 8 offspring, the probability is 107/256 = 0.418 The probabilities would need to be weighted together using the proportion of families that have 3 children, 4 children, and so on.

The offspring of an individual with hemophilia can inherit the condition if they receive the affected gene from their parent. Inheritance follows an X-linked recessive pattern, so males are more likely to be affected while females are typically carriers. Genetic counseling can help assess the risk of offspring inheriting hemophilia.

All Girls will be carriers of Hemophilia. All Boys will be unaffected (they won't have Hemophilia).

A carrier for hemophilia is a female who carries the genetic mutation for hemophilia on one of her X chromosomes, but does not exhibit symptoms of the condition herself. Carriers can pass on the gene mutation to their children, resulting in hemophilia in male offspring. Testing can confirm carrier status.

The question depends on what the offspring is of!
