    A cell in the testis of a male chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) contains 48 chromosomes. It is about to undergo meiosis. How many molecules of DNA will be present in the nucleus of the sperm cells just after meiosis?

    Why is the answer 24? I thought the DNA content of the offspring will be 1/4 of the original content?

    Thanks!
