Answer:

Traits determined by either autosomal chrosomes or sex-chrosomes.

Explanation:

The genes on the autosomes determine their own traits. The genes of the autosomes inherit on the chromosomes from parents to offsprings. There 22 pars of autosomes in human beings which determine different traits except sex.
Some traits and sexes are determined by sex-chromosomes. The haemophilia disease in huma beings is sex-linked disease. Because the gene for this disease is situated on the sex chromosome. There two or one pair of sex chromosomes, which determine sex.
So, the traits are named as autosomal trait pedigree and sex-linked trait pedigree. Thank you
