    Answer:

    X number of chromosomes

    Explanation: Onion cells divides through the process called mitosis. Mitosis is a type of cell division that results in two daughter cells each having the same number and kind of chromosomes as the parent nucleus, typical of ordinary tissue growth like the onion. Therefore since the first cell has X number of chromosomes, then the rest of the onion cells also have X number of chromosomes

    Onion plant reproduces sexually and sexually reproducing organisms begin their life from single cell called zygote. The zygote under goes several mitosis division for the further growth of an organism. Since mitosis is an equation division, the chromosome numbers in the daughter cells as the same as the mother cell. If the chromosome number in the single cell is X, then chromosome number in the daughter cells will be X.
