1) Germ cells are specialized cells that develop into gametes. Gametes are produced through the process of meiosis.

If the diploid number for humans is 46 chromosomes, how many chromatids does a cell undergoing meiosis have at each of the following phases?

Select the row that correctly shows the number of chromatids at each phase.

a. G2 of Interphase      Metaphase I    Prophase II
             46                                46                    23

b. G2 of Interphase      Metaphase I       Prophase II
                46                             92                      23

c. G2 of Interphase      Metaphase I        Prophase II
             92                                    46                   46

d. G2 of Interphase        Metaphase I          Prophase II
                  92                           92                           46









2) In an organism with a diploid number of 16, how many chromatids are present in each of the following phases:

          Answer                                 Answer                                       Answer
Mitotic metaphase        Meiotic metaphase I             Meiotic metaphase II






3) SEE IMAGE ATTACHED






4) SEE SECOND IMAGE ATTACHED TO ANSWER THE FOLLOWING:

Use the following information to answer the next question.

During metaphase I of meiosis, tetrads align along the metaphase plate independently of each other. Therefore, there is a random “shuffle” of maternal and paternal chromosomes in the resulting gametes.

The following diagram demonstrates how this works in a diploid cell with four chromosomes open parentheses (2n= 4 ). Because there are two pairs of chromosomes and each pair can align in one of two ways during metaphase I, the number of possible variations in the gametes produced is 2^2, or 4.

For an organism that is (2n =6), there are three pairs of chromosomes, so the number of possible variations in the gametes produced due to independent assortment in metaphase I is 2 ^3, or 8.


In an organism with a haploid number of 7, how many possible combinations of maternal and paternal chromosomes can occur in its gametes?

a. 2 ^ 7 = 128



b. 2 ^ 14 = 16 384



c. 7 ^2 = 49



d. 1 ^ 7 = 7

b. 2 ^ 14 = 16 384

c. 7 ^2 = 49

d. 1 ^ 7 = 7

27 = 128

Explanation:

- In a diploid individual, 2n possible gametes can be produced where n is the haploid chromosome number.

- In above question, haploid number is 7 i.e , n=7. Here 2n = 27 = 128.
