Time for onion takes 16 hour

1 Hour = 60 minutes

Therefore 16 hours 60 minutes =960 minutes

Time for each stage=( Number of cells at each stage Total number of cells) 960


Time for stage two: Number of cells 9 cells

Total number of cell 72 cells


(972 ) 960 = 120 minutes

Stage 2 lasts for 120 minutes

Ans= 120 minutes
