|A.Karyotypes and karyograms are terms that are used interchangeably to describe chromosome mapping|
|B.Karyotypes describe the number of chromosomes and what they look like (size bands and centromere placement). Karyograms is the study of the whole set of chromosomes arranged in pairs by size, and position of the centromere|
|C.Karyograms describe the number of chromosomes and what they look like (size bands and centromere placement). Karyotypes is the study of the whole set of chromosomes arranged in pairs by size, and position of the centromere|
|D.Karyotypes are unstained chromosomes in interphase or prophase. Karyograms are stained chromosomes from metaphase
