Chrom-centration

Uh-oh, someone's mixed up ThatKid's genetic material! Can you match the chromosomes on the right side with the ones the left? Enter the corresponding number or letter in each text box. (We'll start you off with one free match -- chromosome 4.)

(In case you didn't know... The genetic material in animal cells is stored in structures known as chromosomes. Human cells have 23 pairs of chromosomes. Each pair has a distinctive size and banding pattern. The 23rd pair is special -- they're known as the sex chromosomes. Females have matching "X" sex chromosomes. In males, the larger "X" chromosome is paired with a smaller Y chromosome. The chromosomes below are from one of the fetal cells taken from Linda's womb during amniocentesis.)

You Won!

Clicking "Submit" will tell you how many chromosomes you've matched correctly. Be sure to enter a sex chromosome. Hint: ThatKid is a boy (XY).
