Question

Which statement correctly describes mitotic cell division?​

1 Answer

  • Answer:

    Explanation:

    “Although part of your question is missing, you might be referring to this full question:

    Which of the following correctly describes how mitosis and meiosis are similar?

    A. Sister chromatids segregate to opposite poles of the cell during both mitosis and meiosis.

    B. Crossing over occurs between homologous chromatids during both mitosis and meiosis.

    C. Both mitosis and meiosis produce diploid daughter cells.

    D. Both mitosis and meiosis produce genetically identical daughter cells.”

    The statement that correctly describes how mitosis and meiosis are similar is “Sister chromatids segregate to opposite poles of the cell during both mitosis and meiosis”.  

    Mitosis and Meiosis both are classified under cell division that tends to take place in humans and certain other animals. Both Mitosis and Meiosis have both differences and similarities in the way they result in new cells with varying goals and slightly different outcomes. Some of the similarities between meiosis and mitosis are:

    During both mitosis and meiosis, cells must duplicate their DNA and pull them apart into 2 sets and further place the sets on each end of itself and then divide down the middle part

    Both meiosis and mitosis results in fresh new cells depending on the genes of their parent cells  

    Thus, we can conclude that the statement that correctly describes how mitosis and meiosis are similar is “Sister chromatids segregate to opposite poles of the cell during both mitosis and meiosis”. Hence, option A is the correct answer.
