Solution

The correct option is A True
Meiosis is also called reductional division and is specifically for the formation of gametes. Hence, it only takes place in the germ cells.
The mitotic division is for multiplication of cells, growth and replacement of worn out tissues.
So, the correct statement is 'Mitosis takes place regularly in somatic cells, whereas meiosis occurs only in germ cells'.
