Meiosis Questions and Answers (Q&A)

The structure circled and labeled A is called a centriole. This structure is used during cell division, and it’s really cool. It is used during the very last stage, called cytokinesis. This is when the cell is getting ready to divide and it needs to evenly split its cytoplasm. The centrioles go to either end of the cell, as they are shown here, and just pull the chromosomes into the proper sides of the cell. This ensures that, when the cell membrane divides the cell, both cells have the correct number of chromosomes.

The centrioles only appear when they are needed. Otherwise, they stay out of the way of the daily operations of a cell. They just make sure the cell has the right number of chromosomes before the cell membrane splits the cells into two.

Telophase II is the fourth step of meiosis II, which is the step in which the chromosomes reach opposite poles and cytokinesis transpires. The two cells are produced through meiosis I, divide to form 4 haploid daughter cells, and nuclear envelopes form. When telophase II is over, the two cells are entirely separated, and their atomic membranes are fully developed; therefore, meiosis is then complete. Meiosis is a reproductive cell division because it gives rise to gametes.

The resulting cells following meiosis contain one half the number of the chromosomes in the parent cell. That is because the parent's cell undergoes two divisions. Telophase is the final stage of cell separation, and during telophase, the nuclear envelope restructures around the new nuclei located in each half of the separating cell. Telophase begins as anaphase ends.

It is in meiosis I that the homologous chromosomes start to separate. In meiosis II, the sister chromatids begin to separate from each other. It is also in meiosis 1 that diploid daughter cells are produced. In meiosis II, four haploid cells are produced. Take note that there are so many other similarities and differences between these two phases and aside from these, there are also other phases that you have to know more about.

The more that you understand it, the more that you will become fascinated with how different cells are duplicated so that people can be unique. Do remember that it is only in meiosis I wherein crossing over can occur.

Technically, in a matter of speaking, chromatids are being separated even though it is misleading and are called chromosomes.

All of the answers to this test are wrong! You guys are idiots! Go back to school fags.

Meiosis is a process of cell division. There are several phases. During meiosis I, the cells go through four phases including prophase I, metaphase I, anaphase I, and telophase I. During prophase I, six stages occur including leptotene, zygotene, pachytene, dipotene, diakinesis and synchronous processes.

Then the process goes into meiosis II. Then cell division goes through the same named phases as meiosis I. The number of chromosomes changes during these cell divisions which is normal. Daughter cells are the new born cells.

The older cells are called mother cells. The daughter cells contain chromosomes. At the end of the meiosis II stage, the daughter cells may contain 12 chromosomes which means that there were six chromosomes at the end of meiosis I.
