Genetics Third generation in the pedigree

Given this pedigree,

What would be expected of the III generation?


a) The probable pattern of inheritance shown by the disease in this family is autosomal recessive.
b) If recombination does not occur the probability that III 1 will be affected if she has an AB marker genotype is 1.
c) If recombination does not occur, the probability that III 1 will be affected if she has a BB marker genotype is 1.
d) If the recombination fraction between the disease and marker loci equals 0.04, the probability that III 1 will be affected if she inherits an AB marker genotype equals 0.96.
