It all will depend on what kind of (recessive or dominant) alleles are responsible for the colorblind characteristic and what kind of alleles do the parental genes have.

It is always 50/50.

The individual probability that a child born will be female is 50% or 0.5.Using this we can calculate the probability that at least one of the children will be female by:calculating the probability that none of the children will be female and then subtracting this from 1.The probability that all the children are male is therefore 0.53 = 0.5 * 0.5 * 0.5 = 0.125.Thus the answer is 1 - 0.125 = 0.875 = 87.5%

If the mother is a carrier of the colorblind gene (XcX) and the father has normal color vision, the probability of their child being colorblind is 50%. This is because the child has a 50% chance of inheriting the Xc chromosome from the mother and developing colorblindness.

The probability of a colorblind child being born is 50%. This is because the male passes his Y chromosome to all his sons, and since he is colorblind, his sons will inherit the colorblind gene from him. The daughters will inherit their X chromosome from the mother and have a 50% chance of being carriers like her.

Make a punnet square with the mother above, her genotype would be: X^B X^b, and the father to the left whose genotype is X^b Y.The probability of having a colorblind CHILD is 50%. The probability of them having a SON is 50%. Since we are asked what the probability of their SON being colorblind, it is 50% as well. The reason is because the chance of having a colorblind son, among sons only, (according to the punnet square) is 50%.

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

the colorblindness is usually not activited in a female body but is usually seen in male

It depends on a number of different factors. If colorblind is common in either family but the mother/father were lucky enough not to get it, then its a recessive gene. but if its not common in either family then its a very low chance the child will be color blind. Although, if there are numerous people on both sides of the family the probability is very high. It all depends on a lot of different factors. How dominant is the gene? How many relatives are colorblind? If there are any, and they have children, are they colorblind? The easiest way to figure out if the child will be colorblind is to have the kid and test it for colorblind-ness.
