I'm assuming most of you have seen the movie, "Doom". Based off my favorite video game, I personally think it wasn't all that great.
But, it was okay. If you had seen it, you would know that an alien race had been wiped out on Mars. The aliens had 24 pairs of chromosomes. Humans only have 23.
So, today, I asked my science teacher what would happen if a human was born with 24 chromosomes. Expecting an answer, she didn't provide. "That's impossible, but it's one kind of thing we'll be learning about in this chapter.."
Why couldn't she answer the goddamn question?
My science teacher said ,and i qote''For a person to be considered normal,You have to have 48,or in your case as your teacher said 23,If you have 1 less or 1 more than 48,or 23(I kinda forgot but i think it was 48)Any way if you have 1 less or 1 greater ,you can be born retarded,or mutated.So it might be possible,In fact it is possible,If you are born with one less or one greater you could also be born dead.So yes it is possible.Personaly i don't know why she coulden't awnser,Her response should have been,''If you have 1 less or one greater You arn't considered normal,either your,born retarded,dead,or mutated.So there you have it.
I could give a better awnser if I knew what grade you are in,But I havent the time to tell you.so,Thank You for your question, and a Your welcome.Have a nice day.
