Can you believe that I've got a multifactorial disease pedigree!
It was hypertension
I don't think your rules work in such cases :confused:

I have seen a question showing a typical autosomal recessive inheritance and then the correct answer was down syndrome !!!

Woe
It has been said that Down syndrome due to Roberstonian translocation may follow an inheritance pattern similar to autosomal recessive.

This is really a tricky question, but they must hint you about Down in some other ways other than the family pedigree otherwise no genius can answer it.
