Meiosis I produces _____ cells, each of which is _____.

Meiosis I produces _____ cells, each of which is _____.

A: Four .. diploid

B: Two .. diploid

C: Two .. identical to the other

D: four … haploid

E: two … haploid

Answer:

The correct answer is option E (two … haploid).

Explanation:

Meiosis I produces two cells, each of which is haploid.

Meiosis:

Meiosis is the process of cell division which is specialized in reproduction. It is the process in which a single cell divides twice to produce four cells which contain half of the original amount of genetic information.

Meiosis produces sex cells or gemmates, which are sperm in males and eggs in a female.

Meiosis-I-produces _____ cells-each-of-which-is _____.
Meiosis I produces _____ cells, each of which is _____.

These cells carry genetic information that is involved in sexual reproduction. It takes the genetic information of the parents (either of a mother or a father) for the formation of the egg cell. This process of egg formation is called fertilization.

Meiosis has two stages; meiosis I and meiosis II.

Meiosis I:

Meiosis I produces two cells, each of which is haploid.

During meiosis I, a single parent cell divides twice to produce four daughter cells.

These daughter cells contain half of the chromosomes of the parent cell; therefore, they are haploid.

Stages of meiosis I:

  1. Interphase
  2. Prophase I
  3. Metaphase I
  4. Anaphase I
  5. Telophase I and Cytokinesis.
