    The answer is 36

    Mitosis is a kind of cell division that produces 2 daughter cells that are genetically identical to both the other daughter cell and the parent cell. The process is where the parent cell first duplicates its genetic material, then it divide so that both daughter cell receive the exact number and same DNA.

    Different from meiosis, mitosis only requires one division process and it only produces 2 genetically indentical cells instead of 4 genetically different ones.

    We usually call the products of mitosis as diploid cells, they have the complete sets of chromosomes. These cells are usually important for activities such as growth, repair etc. They make up our normal body (somatic) cells.

    Therefore, the answer is 36, only 36 matches the description of genetically identical cells.
