Explanation
There are two important types of division, namely vegetative division (mitosis) and reproductive cell division (meiosis). By dividing into daughter cells, a parent cell is not undergoing death; rather it divides itself into its respective daughter cells produced and the process continues. Mitosis and cytoplasmic divisions are the two major events followed by multicellular organisms for their body development and size increase during development...
