Answer : 3 in the nucleus, mitochondria, and chloroplasts. Explanation : Answer: C) in the nucleus, mitochondria, and chloroplasts. Explanation: All of the genetic information in a cell was initially thought to be confined to the DNA in the chromosomes of the cell nucleus.It is now known that small circular chromosomes, called extranuclear, or cytoplasmic, DNA, are located in two types of organelles found in the cytoplasm of the cell.These organelles are the mitochondria in animal and plant cells and the chloroplasts in plant cells.Chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) contains genes that are involved with aspects of photosynthesis and with components of the special protein-synthesizing apparatus that is active within the organelle.Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) contains some of the genes that participate in the conversion of the energy of chemical bonds into the energy currency of the cell—a chemical called adenosine triphosphate (ATP)—as well as genes for mitochondrial protein synthesis.
