1. many more males than females show the rare phenotype under study.
2. None of the offspring of an affected male show the phenotype, but all his daughters are carriers.
3. sons of affected males will not be carriers
in pedigree only males could show up but really there are females as carriers..... male cannot get son disease unless wife is carrier
