. If the plant have diploid chromosome number 24, the endosperm and embryo will have chromosome content-

A.         Endosperm-24 and embryo-24        

B.         Endosperm-24 and embryo-36

C.         Endosperm-36 and embryo-24        

D.         Endosperm-48 and embryo-36

Best Answer

C.    In the process of sexual reproduction, one male gamete fuses with the egg cell and forms the zygote (2n). The other male gamete moves towards the centre and fuses with the secondary nucleus and forms endosperm (3n). So the chromosome number will be : embryo-24, Endosperm-36.
