How many times does a cell divide during meiosis?
C) Three times
D) Four times
During meiosis, a cell undergoes two rounds of cell division, resulting in the formation of four haploid daughter cells. The first division, known as meiosis I, separates homologous chromosomes into two different daughter cells. The second division, meiosis II, further divides these two daughter cells into a total of four haploid cells, each with half the number of chromosomes as the original diploid cell. This process is essential for the production of gametes (sperm and egg cells) with half the genetic material, which is necessary for sexual reproduction.
