    shall we assume that the homologous chromosomes have heterozygous alleles. hence, the two pairs could be AaBb. The ensuing haploids cells could be AB, Ab, aB, and ab. With 3 pairs, the genotype could be AaBbCc and the ensuing haploid cells could be ABC, ABc, AbC, aBC, Abc, aBc, abC, and abc. So, 4 cells for two pairs and eight cells for 3 pairs.
