How Many Mitotic Divisions Are Required To Produce 128 Cells From A Single Cell? (A)7.(B)8.(C)14.(D)16.

The correct answer is (A)7.

In mitosis, each cell divides into two.

Hence, starting from a single cell, the number of cells will increase as per the following progression- 1→2→4→8→16→32→64→128. Thus a total of 7 divisions is required to produce 128 cells starting from a single cell or 2n times the division.
