How can chromosomal material condense to form chromosomes shouldn't it be chromatin. Please explain

Dear Student,

The statement follows, "Chromosomal material condenses to form compact mitotic chromosomes. Chromosomes are seen to be composed of two chromatids attached together at the centromere".

It explains or states that, the diffused chromosome is now condensed to form a visible two sister chromatid structure with a constricted centromere. It is called 'compact mitotic chromosome' because it is having two sister chromatids which are identical to each other genetically. 

Regards.
