Meerkats are a diploid organisms with n=18.

For each of the following, indicate the total number of chromosomes, the number of pairs of homologous chromosomes and the number of pairs of sister chromatids. Indicate if the cell in question is diploid or haploid and if the daughter cell will be diploid or haploid.
