Expert Answer

Step 1

Since we are entitled to answer up to 3 sub-parts, we’ll answer the first 3 as you have not mentioned the subparts you need help with. Please resubmit the question and specify the other subparts you’d like to get answered.

Step 2

a) The process of pairing all the chromosomes of an organism and then arranging them in order is termed as karyotyping. In the given question, all the chromosomes are in pairs, except chromosome number 13, which has three sets for it. There is a pair of X chromosomes, and in total 22 autosomes are there. So, the total number of chromosomes is 47. The calculation for the same is shown below:

Total number of chromosomes pairs = 23
Total number of chromosomal pairs with two sets of each = 22
Hence, for this, total number of chromosomes = 22x 2
44
Chromosome 13 has three sets of the chromosome.
therefore, Total number of chromosomes given by chromosome 13 3
Hence, total chromosomes represented in the karyotype 44 3= 47
