Answers (1)


As we learned in the introduction,

Mitosis is a kind of cell division that divides a single parent cell into two identical daughter cells. When cells need to replicate and replace lost or damaged cells, it is involved in the growth and tissue repair processes. Every daughter cell acquires the same set of chromosomes as the parent cell thanks to mitosis.

Option 1 is the correct answer.
