Solution

Women with Blood group O married a man with Blood group AB

Hence the genotype of parents are

Mother - `I^OI^O`

Father – `I^A I^B`

Using the punnet square method, the possible blood groups in the progeny are as follows:

  `I^O` `I^O`
`I^A` `I^A I^O` `I^A I^O 
`I^B` `I^BI^O` `I^BI^O` 

Hence the possible genotype are – `I^A I^O` and `I^BI^O`

possible phenotype are – Blood group A and Blood group B.
