• Depends on the probability of a pairing with another recessive allele. If many other individuals also possess the recessive, then it is likely that there will be a pairing. If no one else has the recessive allele, then it would be impossible to have a mating where both partners possess the recessive -- thus, it would not show up in the offspring.
