hi it is easy
as both strains have the same genitic material but only little difference in Y chromosome , in terms of compatibility , the donor male(has y chromosome from the father ) must give it to male who inhereted the strain A from his father and strain b from the mother (exactly as the donor) so as a result the both will have no difference in genes on chromosome Y
hope I could explain it
