A cell has 32 chromosomes. It undergoes mitotic division. What will be the chromosome number (N) during metaphase? What would be the DNA content (C) during anaphase?


Answers (1)

Ans. The number will remain 32 because the number of chromosomes does not change during metaphase or anaphase. DNA replication takes place during the S phase and hence, the DNA content gets doubled after the S phase; and will remain so during mitosis.
