1. If the cell of a diploid organism (2n = 6) undergoes meiosis, how many different chromosome homologs are present in each daughter cell at the end of meiosis I?

2. If the cell of a diploid organism (2n = 6) undergoes meiosis, how many chromosomes are present in each daughter cell at the end of meiosis II?

About This Quiz & Worksheet

This quiz/worksheet combo will test your knowledge of what happens to chromosomes during meiosis. You will answer questions about the number of chromosomes left in daughter cells after various kinds of cell division and select the correct information about meiotic recombination.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

In this assessment you will:

  • Determine the number of chromosomes present in daughter cells after mitosis
  • Determine the number of chromosomes present in daughter cells after meiosis I and meiosis II
  • Recognize the various consequences of meiotic recombination

Skills Practiced

This quiz/worksheet combo requires the following skills:

  • Distinguishing differences - recognize the differences between topics from the lesson, such as mitosis and meiosis
  • Information recall - access the knowledge you've gained regarding meiotic recombination
  • Knowledge application - use your knowledge of the processes of meiosis and mitosis to answer questions about how many chromosomes are present in daughter cells for each type of cell division

Additional Learning

To learn more about this special kind of cell division, see the accompanying lesson, Overview of Meiosis, which covers:

  • The difference between mitosis and meiosis
  • What happens to chromosomes during meiosis
  • The steps to meiosis: going from a diploid cell to a haploid gamete
