A. One species of diploid potato has a chromosome number of n=6, while another species has a chromosome number of n=4. Hybrids between the two species are sterile. However, rare fertile hybrid plants can be obtained. What would you expect the total number of chromosomes to be in a gamete from one of these fertile hybrids? a) 4 b) 6 c) 10 d) 12 e) 20 (See also Q. 6.5, which was accidentally not assigned.  This question is  much clearer than Q. 6.6, which I did assign by accident, and is more like  what I might ask). B.   The normal version of a chromosome has the gene order AB
