Question

The best material for the study of mitosis in the laboratory is


  1. Ovary

  2. Anther

  3. Leaf tip

  4. Root tip


Solution

The correct option is D

Root tip


Root tip as compared to the leaf tip is the best material to study mitosis. Root tip is a rapidly growing part of a plant body and thus many cells will be in different stages of mitosis. The root tips can be prepared and squashed in a way that allows them to lie flat on a microscopic slide so that the chromosomes of individual cells can be observed easily under the microscope. Special cells within the ovary and the anther undergo meiosis.
