Hi Jagriti,

Thank you for asking!

This is pretty logical question.
As we know by defination that each meiotic product bears half the quantity of DNA from that of parent cell DNA. So, the parent cell must have 40 picogram of DNA. But we are discussing about the specific G2 phase which comes after S phase. That means during S phase DNA quantity doubled as a result of DNA replication.
Finally, the quantity of DNA at G2 phase will be 40x2= 80 picogram.

Hope the answer of the question!
