A

In humans, there are 3 different blood types: A, B, and O, and each one of these blood types have a different allele. For the A and B blood types, the alleles that code for each one of them are dominant, whereas, for the O blood type, the allele is recessive.

For an individual to inherit either of the blood types indicates the complete dominance of one allele over another.
