    Please help! I was revising Mitosis and Meiosis...And came across this Q on Meiosis which has been twisting my brain ever since.

    Q: If Diploid cells [2n=6] divide my Meiosis, how many different combinations of chromosomes would it be possible to find among the haploid cells produced?

    Please help asap...
    Thanks.
