  • Answer:

    Monosomy could be descrided as 2n-1

    Explanation:

    Monosomy is the lack of one member of a chromosome pair. It is as a result of nondisjunction during meiosis. When this happens, one gamete shows monosomy, and the other shows trisomy of the same chromosome.

    A diploid cells (2n) is characterized by the presence of two copies of each chromosome versus haploid cells (n). Therefore, monosomy could be descrided as 2n-1.
