  22. Male nonhomologous pair
    XY
  23. Length and centromere location determine ordered display of chromosomes. Picture of all the chromosomes. Ordered display of chromosomes

  31. Broken chromosome or loss of DNA
    Deletions
  32. Interchange of portion of one chromosome to another chromosome
    Translocation
  33. Excess of chromosome material
    Duplications
  34. Occurrence of 2 breaks of chromosome, followed by reinsertion of the missing fragment at its original site but inverted order
    Inversion
  35. Sex chromosome missing, resulting in 45 X. No Y chromosome, affects only females. Short stature, webbed neck, shield like chest, underdeveloped breast, and imperfectly developed ovaries, sterile. IQ normal, give estrogen to develop secondary sex char
    Turner syndrome
  36. Have at least 2 X and 1 Y chromosome in each cell. Results in 47, XXY male appearance. Sterile. Small testes. Breast may develop. Sparse body hair. Long limbs
