You are posting nice buzzwords
but let me say this

Current USMLE exams are getting away from buzzwords to complicate the matters

For example in the case of turner syndrome, they (in my exam) did not tell me streak ovaries but they described the pathological appearance using some difficult terms

docspike is correct

Autosomal trisomies are the most common chromosomal abnormalities observed in abortions But Collectively

Monosomy X is the most common single chromosomal abnormality seen in aborted fetuses

Check page 626 in Clinical Laboratory Medicine ed. 5
Here's a link
