Cell Cycle Quiz: Mitosis, Interphase And Cytokinesis!

This is a cell cycle quiz about mitosis, interphase, and cytokinesis! The cell undergoes different processes when it has duplicated and as the processes differ, so do the results. In mitosis, the nuclear DNA of the cell condenses into visible chromosomes and is pulled apart by the mitotic spindle. What of the other processes? This quiz will help test out how well you know the processes and their results as well. Give it a shot!


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    Why do cells divide when they get too large?
    • A. 

      Transportation of wastes becomes a problem for large cells.

    • B. 

      When a cell is too large, materials can not get to all parts of the cell.

    • C. 

      As a cell grows, the volume increases much faster than the surface area. This causes difficulty with transportation of wastes and nutrients through the cell.

    • D. 

      None of the above.

  • 2. 
    Which phase in the cell cycle is DNA replicated?
    • A. 

      Prophase

    • B. 

      Interphase, during G1

    • C. 

      Interphase during S

    • D. 

      Interphase during G2

  • 3. 
    In which phases of the cell cycle does the cell have twice as much DNA than G1?
    • A. 

      S phase, only

    • B. 

      S, G2, Prophase, Anaphase, Metaphase

    • C. 

      S, G2, Prophase

      92

    • C. 

      23

    • D. 

      None

  • 7. 
    What happens during interphase?
    • A. 

      The cell divides.

    • B. 

      The cell grows and performs its normal functions.

    • C. 

      The cell is in stasis. It is not growing.

    • D.
