It would be tightly wound around histone proteins as chromosomes.FeedbackYes! DNA in chromatin form is easiest to replicate.Question 2DNA that is tightly wound around histone proteins is the easiest to divide. Is thisstatement true or false?A. FalseB. TrueFeedbackYes. When the DNA is tightly wound around histone proteins, it is easy to makesure one copy of each chromosome gets into the daughter cells.Question 3If a germ cell has 20 chromosomes, how many chromosomes will you find in thedaughter cells, after meiosis?
