Question:

An organism has a total of thirty-six chromosomes. How many chromosomes will be in each of the organism’s gametes?

A 18
explanation

Gametes are produced by meiosis, which results in four haploid (1n) cells that each have half the chromosomes of a somatic cell. If the organism has thirty-six chromosomes, its gametes will have 36 ÷ 2 = 18 chromosomes.
