"The chromosome number of the sexually producing parents and their offspring is the same". Justify

Asked by srgopal 29th October 2017, 11:13 AM
Answered by Expert
Answer:
Number of chromosomes is halved during gamete formation. As a result, the number of chromosomes in gamete is half the number of chromosomes in somatic cells. When male and female gametes fuse during fertilization, the number of chromosomes becomes equal to that in somatic cells. This is how, offspring and parents of organisms reproducing sexually have the same number of chromosomes.
