Step 1

 Given : In a particular dihybrid the two genes of interest, “A” and “B,” are located on different chromosomes. Meiosis is a reductional division where diploid cells are converted into haploid cells. It consists of meiosis I and II. Now, meiosis I can be divided into phases namely,  prophase I, metaphase I, anaphase I,  telophase I and meiosis II can be divided into prophase II, metaphase II, anaphase II and telophase II.


Step 2

Figure B does not represent a stage of meiosis for the alleles A and B because the figure shows independent assortment for alle...
