Solution

The correct option is A 2, 24
Mitosis is a cell division where the parent cell divides to form two daughter cells that are identical to the parent cell. They have the same number of chromosomes as the parent cell and also the same type of chromosomes. Hence, this division is also called equational division.
Thus, the parent cell with 24 chromosomes after undergoing mitosis will form two daughter cells each with 24 chromosomes.
