Organism C: 24 chromosomes
Organism D: 22 chromosomes
Organism E: 27 chromosomes
Organism F: 12 chromosomes
Organism G: 9 chromosomes
Organism H: 14 chromosomes
Organism I: 38 chromosomes

Assuming that there are no significant mutations represented in these organisms, is it possible that any two or more of these organisms are from the same species? If so, what organisms could possibly be from the same species?
