Interphase is the part of the cell cycle when _______.

  1. a. a cell ceases to function
  2. b. a cell forms its spindle apparatus
  3. c. a cell grows and replicates its DNA
  4. d. mitosis proceeds

Summary Introduction

Concept Introduction: Between the cell division, the interval of the cell cycle is called interphase. It occurs in three major stages in the eukaryotic cell. It takes most of the time in the cell cycle.

Explanation of Solution

Reason for the correct statement:

G1, G0, S, and G2 are stages in the interphase. A cell starts life in the G1 phase, where the cell size is increased and the molecules required for DNA replication is produced. During S phase, the cell copies its chromosomes by the DNA replication, and during the G2 the proteins and other components necessary for the division are produced.

Option c. is given as “a cell grows and replicates its DNA”.

The replication of DNA and the cell growth occur in the interphase stage of the cell cycle, hence, option c. is correct.

Reasons for the incorrect statements:

Option a. is given as “a cell ceases to function”...
