If a cell with 24 chromosomes undergoes meiosis, how many cells will be formed after the process? how many chromosomes will each have?


The overall process of meiosis produces four daughter cells from one single parent cell. Each daughter cell is haploid, because it has half the number of chromosomes as the original parent cell.

Chromosome will each cell normally contains 23 pairs of chromosomes, for a total of 46.

Meiosis produces four daughter cells, each having half of the parent cell's number of chromosomes. So, if parent cell has 24 chromosomes, all four of its daughter cells will have 12 chromosomes each.

Do you know the answer?
