Chromosome Number Test 3

Welcome back to the Electronic Frontier science classroom of the 21st Century. This test has been designed to test your knowledge on the haploid (n) and diploid (2n) number of chromosomes found various animal, plant, and prokaryotic cells. The actual number of chromosomes will vary with the individual species. I hope you do well and earn high grades on learning about chromosomes and organisms. !
