Question

In meiosis, the number of chromosomes in each of the four daughter cells is-


A
same as the parent cell
loader
B
twice the number in parent cell
loader
C
half of the number in parent cell
loader
D
triple the number in parent cell
loader

Solution

The correct option is B half of the number in parent cell
In meiosis, four daughter cells are produced. It is also known as reductional division, since the chromosome number gets halved in the daughter cells. For example, if a parent cell with 46 chromosomes undergoes meiosis then the daughter cells will have 23 chromosomes each. Hence, the meiotic daughter cells are also known as haploid cells or gametes.
