This all is possible because of the combinations of the genotypes.
Kyle has Brown hair (BB) from his mom, if it is combined with Blonde hair (bb), which came from both my Mom and Dad (mostly my dad), the only result would be Bb. That equals light brown/dirty blonde hair. Therefore, every single child would have light brown/dirty blonde hair.
Kyle has Hazel eyes (Bb), like his dad (Bb) but his mom has blue (bb), I have green eyes that can change to hazel (Bb), I got incomplete dominance because my mom has dominant (BB-brown) and my dad has recessive (bb-blue). There is a 25% chance for the child to have Brown (BB), 50% chance to have hazel/green (Bb), or 25% chance to have blue eyes(bb). These are because our genes, when combined, come out to these results. View Punet Square above labeled “eyes”.
Kyle can roll his tongue, which is the dominant trait. Both his Mom and Dad can roll their tongues. I cannot roll my tongue, neither can my dad (tt) but my mom can (Tt), she has to be heterozygous for this trait because she had to give me the recessive trait. So since Kyle has dominant (TT), the child can roll their tongue 100%. His two dominant traits—guarantee that one dominant against my one recessive will overpower—gives the child the capability to roll their tongue.
