Class 12 Biology Reproduction Sexual reproduction in Flowering Plants



In a monocot, endosperm cells have 24 chromosomes. What shall be the chromosome number in embryo?
(a)
24
(b)
16
(c)
12
(d)
8
Correct answer: (b) 
Solution: In a monocot, the endosperm is triploid in nature, i.e., 3n = 24. So n=8. Whereas, the embryo is diploid(2n) in nature. Thus, the embryo will have 2X8 = 16 chromosomes.
Thus, the correct answer is option B.
