A cell has 5 pairs of chromosome after mitotic division the number of chromosome in daughter cell will be ? A. 5. B. 10. C. 20. D. 4

Dear Student,

The correct answer is: (B) 10
Mitosis is also known as equational division i.e. the daughter cells have same number of chromosomes as the mother cell. Since, the mother cell has 5 pair of chromosomes ( total number of chromosomes = 2 x5 =10), therefore each daughter cell will have 10 chromosomes.

In mitosis, the no. of chromosomes doubles to the initial one. Hence, if there are 5 chromosomes initially, after mitosis there will be 10 chromosomes. Option B is correct.
