Question

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


Solution

  • Meiosis occurs for a reductional division and the chromosome no. in the gamete becomes haploid.
  • This is important to retain the diploid chromosomal number after fertilization of the gametes to form a zygote.
  • If the diploid no.is not retained then the zygote is unviable due to an incorrect set of chromosomes which are not associated with the species.
