Mitosis Quizzes & Trivia

Mitosis is an interesting biological process that is often taught in rudimentary science courses. This process is part of the cell process. What happens is that chromosomes inside of the nucleus of the cell separate into two identical sets of chromosomes, each of which now have a separate nucleus. This process is often followed by other sets of processes such as Cytokinesis.

This process is a complex one, and a fast one. It happens quite quickly and when it does, the duplicated cells will condense and then attach to fibers of the cell opposite it. Did you know that some forms of cancer are born out of errors that happen during the mitosis process? If you are a big biology fan and you know all about mitosis, then put your skills and knowledge to the test by completing one of our many quizzes.

Mitosis Questions & Answers


What is the cause of the genetic difference given here? Sea stars are genetically different from each other and from their parents.
This makes no sense, asexual reproduction is cloning of its previous generation. If sea stars are genetically different from each other then that could only be caused by sexual reproduction which uses two different sets of DNA.
Which is the most suitable option here? Sea stars are genetically different from each other and from their parents. These genetic differences are the result of ____________.
Isnt asexual reproduction where they make pretty much a copy of themselves? They dont get any different genetic materal. Wouldnt this in ture make them a copy, making the answer sexual reproduction?
What is the first phase of mitosis called?
INTERPHASE is the correct answer!! NOT prophase!!!!!!
Which phase of mitosis allows the chromosomes to line up along the middle of the dividing cell?
When a chromosome divides into two 'daughter' cells for growth and repair, the process is called mitosis. Mitosis is a type of cell division that results in two daughter cells each having the same number and kind of chromosomes as the parent nucleus.
