Good question! Since the phenotype in females (very mild) is quite different from the phenotype in males (significant decline in IQ) I personally do not think it is fair to call it X-linked
dominant, but I have no authority to quote on this... It is more important to understand the issues than the words (unless of course you encounter them in a poorly written multiple
choice question ;-)
