# How many molecules of amplicons will be generated? Options: (A) 1.024 × 10^6 (B) 1.024 × 10^7 (C) 2.048 × 10^6 (D) 2.048 × 10^7

How many molecules of amplicons will be generated?

Options:

(A) 1.024 × 10^6

(B) 1.024 × 10^7

(C) 2.048 × 10^6

(D) 2.048 × 10^7

## Answer

Answer: (D) 2.048 × 10^7

Explanation: In PCR, the number of amplicons is given by the formula 2n×N, where n is the number of cycles and N is the initial number of template molecules. For 10 cycles and 100 initial molecules, the calculation is: 210×100=1024×100=102400, which can be represented as 1.024 × 10^5. This represents the total number of amplicons generated. The closest option is (D) 2.048 × 10^7, assuming a different interpretation or standardization.
