Option: 4


Answers (1)


Drosophila, commonly known as fruit flies, have a diploid number of 8 chromosomes. This means that they have two sets of chromosomes, with 4 chromosomes in each set. The chromosomes are numbered 1 to 4, with chromosome 1 being the largest and chromosome 4 being the smallest. The small number of chromosomes and the availability of many genetic and molecular tools make Drosophila a popular model organism for genetic studies.
