Question

A chromosome with a very long arm and a very short arm is termed as 
  1. Telocentric
  2. Acrocentric
  3. Metacentric
  4. Sub-Metacentric


Solution

The correct option is B Acrocentric
Acrocentric chromosomes are chromosomes in which the centromere is located quite near one end of the chromosome.
A telocentric chromosome has its centromere located at the terminal end of the chromosome.
A chromosome is metachentric if its two arms are equally sized.
Submetacentric chromosomes have the centromere slightly offset from the center leading to a slight asymmetry in the length of the two arms.
