Females have two X chromosomes in their cell.The gametes produced by man will be with X chromosomes ans other Y chromosomes.If the sperm carries x chromosomes and fertilize with the ovum the resultant baby will be a girl
If the sperm carries Y chromosomes and fertilize with the ovum the resultant baby will be a boy .So their will be 50 50 chances ,that depends on the father.

pls mark as best if it is helpful
The sex of the baby depends on the chromosome contributed by the father......the females carry only the X chromosome while males have both X&Y chromosome so, if the father gives an x chromosome (XX) the baby will be a girl and if the father donates Y Chromosome (XY) the will be a boy......so the probability is 50-50 for the sex of the baby..hope it helps u
