Self Assessment Question # 3
Imagine a newly created normal human zygote. Naturally, it is diploid (2n = 46). Imagine it undergoes a normal mitosis and a normal cytokinesis.
Now imagine those two cells were to drift apart - by accident. These cells tend to “forget” that they have undergone a previous division so they both continue on as if they were the original zygote. Assuming the rest of development goes normally, what should the mother have in nine months?
