Meiosis is the type of cell division that leads to gamete (sex cell) formation. This creates haploid cells from the diploid cells of the parent individual. This would preserve the diploid character of the offspring as these haploid cells unite and fertilize, forming a zygote. To do this, meiosis starts with chromosome duplication and is followed by two consecutive cell divisions, namely: meiosis I and meiosis II.
The figure below shows four cells (A-D) that are undergoing meiosis. Match each cell to the phase of meiosis that it is currently in.
B. Prophase I
C. Metaphase I
D. Anaphase II
E. Metaphase II
F. Anaphase I
G. Telophase II
H. Telophase I
