    The right answer is C.

    Incomplete dominance is when hybrids of the F1 generation have an intermediate phenotype (between the two phenotypes). That is, in the case of familial hypercholesterolemia, if the subject is heterozygous it will have 50% functional receptors compared to a healthy homozygous subject.
