Cell reproduction, Miosis and Mitosis. 


Expert Answer

Step 1

Cell reproduction is the process by which cells divide to form new cells.Each time a cell divides, it makes a copy of all of its chromosomes and sends an identical copy to the new cell that is created. There are two types of cell divisions: mitosis and meiosis.

Step 2

 Mitosis is a process where a single cell divides into two identical daughter cells. During mitosis, one cell divides once to form two identical cells. Cell division gives rise to genetically identical cells in which the number of chromosomes is maintained.  The stages of mitosis are prophase, prometaphase, metaphase, anaphase, and teloph...
