What is the DNA content of somatic cells in the G2 phase if their meiotic outcome contains 20 picograms of DNA?

  1. a) 80 pg
  2. b) 160pg
  3. c) 40pg
  4. d) 20 pg

Answer: a) 80 pg

Explanation: The meiotic outcome or product of a somatic cell has 20 picograms of DNA. Thus, 20 picograms of DNA should have 40 pg. But each somatic cell is diploid in nature. So the final outcome is 40*2, i.e. 80 pg.
