Question

In the hexaploid wheat, the haploid(n) and basic (x) numbers of chromosomes are?


A
n=21 and x=21

B
n=21 and x=14

C
n=21 and x=7

D
n=7 and x=21

Solution

The correct option is C $$n=21$$ and $$x=7$$
  • Haploid means half the number of total chromosomes formed during gamete formation. n=21.
  • total no. of chromosomes in hexaploid wheat=42.
  • the basic set no. of chromosomes (x)= 42/6=7
  • So, the correct option is 'n=21n=21 and 
    x=7'.
