A. The cells in your body receive half their chromosomes from your father and one half of theirchromosomes from your mother. So for each pair of homologous chromosomes one will be a maternal chromosome and one will be apaternal chromosome.. During meiosis when the haploid gametes areformed, each member of the pair but not both ends up in a gamete.This is the principle of segregation.1. For humans (N =23) how manypossible combinations of maternal and paternal chromosomes arethere? Show your reasoning. Hint: are we dealingwith ordered or unordered events here?
B. How many of thecombinations from part A involve 10 maternal chromosomes and 13paternal chromosomes? Hint are we dealing with an ordered orunordered event here?
