Match the following differences between Mitosis and Meiosis:
|Column I||Column II|
a. Two Diploid daughter cells are formed.
b. Four Haploid daughter cells are formed.
c. The number of chromosomes remains the same.
d. Bivalents are formed and crossing over is seen.
e. Division process occurs twice.
|f. Division process occurs only once.|
- i).→ a., b., & c. ii).→ d., e., & f.
- i) → d, e, & f. ii) → a, b, & c.
- i) → a, c, & f. ii).→ b, d, & e.
- i) → b, d, & e. ii) → a, c, & f.
(i) Mitosis is preceded by one cycle of DNA replication and meiosis is preceded by two cycles of DNA replication.
(ii) In sexually reproducing organisms, meiosis is the only type of cell division observed.
(iii) Meiotic cell division is essential for the production of haploid gametes.
- Only (i)
- Both (i) and (iii)
- Only (iii)
- All three statements are true
- meiosis; mitosis
- mitosis; meiosis
- mitosis; mitosis
- meiosis; meiosis
Function of meiosis I is to separate
What is the differentiating event in anaphase, that sets apart mitosis and meiosis?
When moving towards the poles, sister chromatids do not separate in mitosis, but separate in meiosis
Chromosomes align equatorially in mitosis but align longitudinally in meiosis
When moving towards the poles, sister chromatids separate in mitosis, but remain attached in meiosis
Chiasmata are not cut in mitosis but they are cut in meiosis
