Alexis Fec BIO182 Jacobson Mitosis and Meiosis Worksheet 1. E 2. C,E 3. G 4. D 5. Mitosis in multicellular eukaryotic organisms is used to make daughter cells identical to parent cells. The daughter cell after telophase is diploid, so they have 46 chromosomes. 6. An organism might undergo mitosis at a flesh wound, where the skin cells need to replicate to form new skin over the raw skin underneath. One would probably find meiosis in the reproductive organs, so possibly in a testicle or an ovary.

Unformatted text preview: 7. Meiosis in multicellular eukaryotic organisms generate diverse chromosome combinations among gametes. It occurs in the reproductive organs. After telophase II, the daughter cells are haploid, so they have 23 chromosomes. 8. Meiosis helps genetic variation because two gametes come together in sexual reproduction and create new diploid zygotes with chromosome combinations that have never existed before. No two people have the exact same chromosomes....
