Solution

The correct option is D Equal meiotic division
During oogenesis, the primary oocytes divide to form secondary oocyte and a polar body by meiosis.
This division is not an equal meiotic division because the polar body is smaller in size and contain less amount of cytoplasm as compared to the secondary oocyte.
On the other hand, the secondary oocyte has a considerably larger size and more amount of cytoplasm.
So, the correct option is ' Equal Meiotic division'
