    Given a plant species A with a diploid number of 10 and a plant species B with a diploid number 0f 18, I describe how new polyploid species C could arise in a single generation from hybridization between A and B. I also describe the process (including cell division events) and tell what the probable diploid number of C would be.

    In this question,
    A species dilpoid number of chromosome=10
    therefore haploid number of chromosome=5 (after meiosis)
    B species diploid number of chromosome=18
    therefore, haploid number of chromosome=9 (after meiosis)

    Gametes from species A and species can ...
