IB biology may 2005 Q 30 - meiosis

the answer is B), how do we find the number of haploid chromosomes?
shouldn’t it be 0 since the cell is still diploid?

i would have answered C because we have a centromere so its one chromosome so its we have a pair of haploids so that means we have 6 unless they mean here the type of chromosome and then it could have been 3

you can see in the image that when they say haploid they mean when its not connected via a centromere

you can find haploid number knowing diploid=2n and haploid = n this phase is prophase one, meaning the cell is in its diploid form which is 6 chromosomes you can find haploid number like this…
