Question

_______ is the short pause which separates meiosis I and meiosis II.


Your Answer
A
G2 phase
Correct Answer
B
Interkinesis
Your Answer
C
S phase
Your Answer
D
G1 phase

Solution

The correct option is B Interkinesis
Interkinesis is the short pause which separates meiosis I and meiosis II. It occurs just after the meiosis I. This stage can be referred to as the interphase II, however no DNA replication occurs during this phase.

The G1 phase, S phase and G2 phase are events during interphase, just before meiosis I.
During the G1 phase the cell grows and is metabolically active.
In the S phase, the cell doubles its DNA content.
During the G2 phase the cell synthesizes proteins and prepares for meiosis.
The sequence of events can be represented as follows:
G1 phase S phase  G2 phase  Meiosis I Interkinesis  Meiosis II
