    The answer is 25%. Sickle Cell Anemia (SCA) is a recessive trait. This means that a person would need to have gotten it from both of their parents.

    S s

    S SS Ss

    s Ss ss

    I did my best at doing a punnet square to show this. The one with ss would have SCA, Ss and SS would not have it.
