Which of the following correctly identifies a difference between mitosis and meiosis?
Mitosis results in two diploid daughter cells; meiosis results in four haploid daughter cells.
Mitosis results in four diploid daughter cells; meiosis results in two haploid daughter cells.
Mitosis results in one diploid daughter cell; meiosis results in four haploid daughter cells.
Mitosis results in two diploid daughter cells; meiosis results in one haploid daughter cell.
A. Mitosis results in two exact copies of parent cell's genetic information
All cells undergo division. They employ mitotic and meiotic division process. Mitosis is undergone by all cells while meiosis is peculiar to reproductive cells.
Mitosis is a type of cell division that results in two daughter cells which are identical to each other and the original cell that divided. They are identical in the sense that they have the same number of chromosomes and exact copies as the parent cell. Mitosis is used by organisms for growth and multiplication. Hence it is called DUPLICATION division. It is a one division cycle that separates sister chromatids into two identical cells.
Meiosis, on the other hand, is a cell division that results in four daughter cells (gametes) which have their chromosomal number reduced by half. During meiosis, a two step division occurs viz: Meiosis I and Meiosis II.
Meiosis I involves the separation of homologous pair of chromosomes (similar but non-identical chromosomes received from each parent) into two cells. These cells are now haploid (n).
Meiosis II, which is similar to mitosis, involves the separation of sister chromatids (duplicated chromosome). Hence in total, 4 daughter cells with as half as many chromosomes as the parent cell results.
N.B: Meiosis is used by reproductive cells to produce gametes. These gametes must be haploid in order to ensure that after fertilization with another haploid gamete (opposite), a diploid organism results.
Mitosis makes 2 daughter cells so you know the answer is not b
Cells divide and reproduce in two ways, mitosis and meiosis. Mitosis results in two identical daughter cells, whereas meiosis results in four sex cells.
ODNA is exchanged during meiosis, but not during mitosis.
Mitosis and meiosis are the two major cellular divisions in living organisms. Mitosis is the type of cellular division that results in the formation of two daughter cells that are genetically identical to the parent cell while meiosis results in four daughter cells that are genetically different from the parent cell.
Stem somatic and reproductive cells undergo mitosis while meiosis is peculiar to only reproductive cells for formation of gametes. The offsprings produced by meiosis are said to be "genetically different" because a phenomenon called CROSSING OVER where DNA is exchanged between chromosomes occurs.
The correct statements are:Meiosis results in four haploid daughter cells. During meiosis, the 2N mother cells produce N daughter cells. In both processes, DNA replication must occur. Mitosis is responsible for genetic continuity; in higher organisms, it is essential for growth and repair.
Mitosis is a type of cell division in which a parent cell is divided into two identical daughter cells. Each daughter cell contains identical genetic material as that of the parent cell.
It plays important role in growth and repair of cells and tissues in multi-cellular organisms.
Meiosis is a type of cell division in which a parent cell is divided to produce four daughter cells. Each daughter cell contains exactly half the genetic material (chromosomes) as that of parent cells
It plays important role in the production of gametes (eggs and sperms) in sexually reproducing organisms.
Before either cell division, the DNA is replicated in the S or synthesis phase of the cell cycle.
Mitosis and meiosis result daughter cells for growth, development and reproduction in the living world.
Mitosis results two similar daughter cells which are generally for growth and development. In asexual mode of reproduction, mitosis helps in increasing the number of cells.
Meiosis occurs in germ cells, and in meiosis, one diploid cell produce four haploid cells.
Meiosis results variations by independent assortment and by crossing over and it helps the sexual mode of reproduction. During fertilization, the resultant daughter haploid cells unite and retains the diploid number of chromosomes.
The answer is A as mitosis will create 2 daughter cells while meiosis will create 4
Please mark brainliest and have a good day :D
the organisms are not adapted to live in some communities or habitats.
