Correct option is B)
An organism can make 2n different combinations of chromosomal compositions where “n” refers to number of homologous pairs; chromosomes are present in pairs and a diploid organism carries two complete sets of homologous chromosomes. Thus, 2n = 14 makes total 7 pairs of homologous chromosomes which can form 27 different combinations
