Meiosis Quizzes & Trivia

Meiosis is a special type of cell division necessary for sexual reproduction in eukaryotes (organisms with nucleus and other structures enclosed within membranes) such as animals, plants and fungi. Such creatures use this on a daily basis for reproduction and general survival.

Don’t let your knowledge on this subject split apart. Have fun bringing it together with our online quizzes about meiosis. Cross over to questions like: “What is a eukaryote?”, “What is nondisjunction?”, “What happens during the diplotene stage?”, “How many phases take place during the interphase process?”, and “Name two differences between mitosis and meiosis.”.

Whether you’re a plant, animal, or fungi you will enjoy these online quizzes! This is for everyone’s amusement and knowledge. Take time to test your skill and increase your knowledge base!

Meiosis is generally identified as the process through which the cells divide into four parts where the four cells have half the genetic makeup as the original cell. In the human process, these cells are the sperm and the ovum....

Meiosis Questions & Answers


What is the function of the structure called centrioles?
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 nee
What meiosis phase is this?
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 fo

I wrote nuclear membrane and it said i was wrong and said the choices were Nuclear envelope or nuclear membrane.
