A genetic disorder is an abnormal condition that a person inherits through genes or chromosomes. an example is autism. human being

If the carrier is the mother and the unaffected person is the father, and the sex-linked disorder is on the X sex chromosome, the probability that they will have a son with the disorder is 50%.

They can compare the karyotype of a normal person to that of a person with an unknown genetic disorder. Then they can see what chromosome(s) it affects, how it effects it, etc.

how is it possible for a person to have dominant genetic disorder? how is it possible for a person to have dominant genetic disorder?

The person would have a genetic disorder. For example, Macrogaly, Dwarfism, Down Syndrome, and many more genetic dosorders.

A carrier carries the defective allele on one of his/her homologous chromosomes, and the normal allele on the other homologous chromosome. If the normal allele is dominant, then the carrier does not have the genetic disorder. However, if the carrier has a child with another carrier, it is possible that the child will inherit both parents' defective alleles and have the genetic disorder.

Chromosomal, because the person with Klinefelter's would have 47 chromosomes. A genetic disorder would be any disorder having to do with genes, but would not necessarily mean having an extra chromosome.

they will have a disorder of some type

If someone has an extra chromosome it means there was a genetic mutation that is abnormal in human development.
