Which of the following best describes meiosis? a it is the first stage of mitosis. b it occurs in all tissues which require cells to be replaced. c it occurs only in the cells of reproductive structures. d it occurs in all tissues which have been damaged.

Answers

I believe the answer is C
I believe the answer is C

D. Cell division that occurs only in the reproductive structures of an organism.

Explanation: Meiosis only occurs in the reproductive cells, producing gametes with half of the genetic information as the parent cell.

The correct answer is- D) It produces male and female sex cells.  

Meiosis is a type of cell division that is a typical characteristic of sexually-reproducing organisms. It involves formation of four daughter cells ( that haploid) from a single mother cell that is diploid.

It occurs during the process of gamete formation, which leads to formation of both male and female sex cells ( haploid reproductive cells like sperm and egg).

Thus, option D) is the right answer.

B

Explanation:

It couldn't be A because meiosis for a spermatocyte results in only 2 male gametes, and it couldn't be C because asexual reproduction is mitosis only

D. it produces male and female sex cells

Explanation:

Hope this helps!

D

Explanation:

Meiosis is known to make sex cells. Mitosis is what A is talking about. They can get some people confused.

it b

Explanation:

it occurs only in cells in the reproductive structures of an organism

i think im sorry if im wrong
