Default What happens to chromsomes in mitosis that does not happen in meiosis?



a) there's no real difference between mitosis and meiosis

b) In mitosis some of the chromosomes double but in meiosis all of the chromosomes double

c) In mitosis the chromosomes do NOT double so the daughter cells have only half as many chromosomes as the mother cell

d) In mitosis the chromosomes double so each daughter cell ends up with the same number of chromosomes as the mother cell

d)
because in mitosis two identical daughter cells are formed with the full number of chromosomes

D.Mitosis is the process in which a eukaryotic cell separates the chromosomes in its cell nucleus into two identical sets in two daughter nuclei. It is generally followed immediately by cytokinesis, which divides the nuclei, cytoplasm, organelles and cell membrane into two daughter cells containing roughly equal shares of these cellular components. Mitosis and cytokinesis together define the mitotic (M) phase of the cell cycle - the division of the mother cell into two daughter cells, genetically identical to each other and to their parent cell.
