24 chromosomes


36 chromosomes


48 chromosomes


96 chromosomes

Detailed explanation1: Each of the eggs and sperm in the chimpanzee contains 24 chromosomes, and when fertilization occurs, the chromosomes unite to make a single cell with 48 chromosomes.
Detailed explanation2: Humans have 46 chromosomes, whereas chimpanzee, gorilla, and orangutan have 48.
Detailed explanation3: Hence it is called a reductional division. Thus, if a cell has 24 chromosomes before division, the number of chromosomes in the daughter cells produced from mitotic division would remain the same i.e., 24 and the number of chromosomes in the daughter cells resulting from meiosis will be 12.
Detailed explanation4: If a cell has 24 chromosomes before cell division then daughter cell resulting from mitotic division will have 24 chromosomes while daughter cell resulting from the meiotic division will contain 12 chromosomes each.
Detailed explanation5: This is the right answer as the diploid set of a haploid of 24 chromosomes will be 24×2=48. So, the total number of chromosomes in an organism with a haploid number of 24 chromosomes will be 48.
