Consider any species that typically gives birth to one offspring per mating, and that within that species is any simply-inherited trait with a dominant ‘A’ allele and a recessive ‘a’ allele.
Now consider four individuals of that species, all with known genotypes: a heterozygous dominant male (’Aa’), a homozygous dominant female (’AA’), a heterozygous dominant female (’Aa’), and a homozygous recessive female (’aa’). Assume a genetic test doesn’t exist. The mating outcomes of the male over each of these females can be summarised as:
