Solution

The correct option is A $$12$$
Mitosis is the equational division in which the parent cell divides to produce identical two daughter cells. The plant cell have 12 chromosomes after mitosis. The number of chromosomes in the G$$_2$$ phase will be same as 12 chromosomes with 24 chromatids due to the replication of the DNA in the S-phase.
Thus, the correct answer is option B.
