Question

The diagram given below represents a certain stage of mitosis: 

(i) Identify the stage of cell division.
(ii) Name the parts labelled A and B
(iii) What is the unique feature observed in this stage?
(iv) How many daughter cells are formed from this type of cell division?

Solution

(i) Anaphase
(ii)

A - Spindle fibre

B - Centromere

(iii) During this stage (anaphase), the two sister chromatids of each chromosome separate and are drawn towards the opposite poles because of shortening of spindle fibres.

(iv) This type of cell division (mitosis) results in the formation of two daughter cells.
