QUESTION : ANSWER : EXPLANATION
  • Arrange the stages of meiotic prophase I below in order. : Leptotene, Zygotene, Pachytene, Diplotene, Diakinesis
    - The stages of meiotic prophase I in order are leptotene, zygotene, pachytene, diplotene and diakinesis.

  • During which stage of meiotic prophase I do centrioles divide and start moving towards opposite poles? : Leptotene
    - During the leptotene, centrioles divide and start moving towards opposite poles.

  • During which stage of meiosis does crossing over occur? : Prophase I
    - During the prophase I, crossing over occurs.

  • During which stage of meiosis do chromosomes divide at the centromeres? : Anaphase II
    - During the anaphase II, chromosomes divide at the centromeres.

  • How many daughter cells are formed in meiosis? : 4
    - Four daughter cells are formed in meiosis.

  • The daughter cells formed in meiosis are similar to the parent cells. : False
    - The daughter cells contain half the number of chromosomes as compared to the parent cells in meiosis. Moreover, their chromosomes are different because of crossing over.

  • The size of the cell remains the same during the prophase I. : False
    - The cell enlarges during the prophase I.

  • After meiotic cell division, the number of chromosomes in daughter cells is equal to that of parent cells. : False
    - The number of chromosomes is reduced to half in meiosis, while it remains the same in mitosis.
