a.

Summary Introduction

To determine: Diagrammatic representation of daughter cells formed by mitosis.

Introduction: A Mitosis is a form of cell division in which one diploid cell divides to form two diploid cells. Each newly formed cell carries an exact copy of the genetic information contained in the parent cell.

Explanation

Pictorial representation: Fig. A represents the chromosomal content of daughter cells in mitosis.

b.

Summary Introduction

To determine: Diagrammatic representation of daughter cells formed by meiosis I.

Introduction: Meiosis is the process of cell division which is divided into two rounds. The two rounds of division are meiosis I and meiosis II. In meiosis I, the members of each chromosome pair separate from each other.

c.

Summary Introduction

To determine: Diagrammatic representation of daughter cells formed by meiosis II.

Introduction: Meiosis II is divided into four phases: prophase II, metaphase II, anaphase II, and telophase II. At the end of telophase II, cytoplasmic division starts which forms four daughter cells.
