Explain still it seems that there is no simple correlation between the intutive complexity of an organism and number of gene in its genome.

Dear student,
There is no correlation between the complexity of organism and genome size which is referred to as C- value paradox. C-value refers to the amount of DNA present in a haploid nucleus or half amount of DNA present in somatic cell. C-value paradox is the variation of genome size among different species of eukaryotes. It is not necessary that as the complexity of organism increases the gene in the genome also increases.
