Question

What would have happened if meiosis does not occur during the production of human sperm cell and egg cell?


Solution

If meiosis would not have happened during the production of gametes in humans, both sperm and egg cells would have been diploid. Considering that it fertilisation still took place, zygote resulted had to be a tetraploid structure. This tetraploid zygote would have then undergone meiosis to form a diploid organism.
