Resource summary

Question 1

Question
Define the process of Mitosis.
Answer
  • Mitosis is a form of nuclear cell division in which one nucleus divides to form two nuclei, each with the identical number of chromosomes.
  • Mitosis is a form of nuclear cell division in which one nucleus divides to form two nuclei, each with different number of chromosomes.
  • Mitosis is a form of nuclear cell division in which one nucleus divides to form four nuclei, each with the identical number of chromosomes.

Question 2

Question
What is the name of the cell the newly formed nuclei are enclosed in?
Answer
  • Son Cell
  • Daughter Cell
  • Mother Cell

Question 3

Question
After mitosis, the genes located on each chromosome are different.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 4

Question
What characteristic defines interphase?
Answer
  • The cell is rapidly dividing
  • The cell is not dividing

Question 5

Question
What is the name given to the elongated mass of chromosomes in a cell during interphase?
Answer
  • Chromatin
  • Chromosome
  • Proteasome

Question 6

Question
What cellular components are produced during interphase?
Answer
  • Spindle Formation
  • Cellular Organelles
  • Enzymes

Question 7

Question
At the end of interphase and the start of prophase, what happens to the chromatin?
Answer
  • It starts to divide
  • It starts to contract
  • It starts to restrict

Question 8

Question
What is the name given to the point where two chromosomes are held together?
Answer
  • Centromere
  • Spindle
  • Chromatin

Question 9

Question
What cellular organelles are made in the nucleolus?
Answer
  • Mitochondria
  • Ribosomes
  • Nucleus

Question 10

Question
What happens to the nucleolus during prophase?
Answer
  • It disappears
  • It starts to produce ribosomes
  • It starts to divide

Question 11

Question
What is the name given to the fibres that appear in the cytoplasm during prophase?
Answer
  • Spindle Fibres
  • Asbestos Fibres
  • Mitosis Fibres

Question 12

Question
In metaphase, the nuclear membrane completes its breakdown.
Answer
  • True
  • False

Question 13

Question
What does the spindle fibre attach to during metaphase?
Answer
  • The centromere
  • The chromatin
  • The nucleolus

Question 14

Question
What happens to the chromosomes during metaphase?
Answer
  • They begin to separate
  • They condense to form chromatin
  • They line up along the equator of the cell

Question 15

Question
The spindle fibres start to contract during anaphase, what happens to the centromeres?
Answer
  • They start to split
  • They start to multiply
  • They stop dividing

Question 16

Question
How many chromosomes are present in the cell during anaphase?
Answer
  • 8
  • 4

Question 17

Question
What happens to the chromosomes in the cell during telophase?
Answer
  • They begin to lengthen and become hard to distinguish
  • They begin to shorten and form chromatin

Question 18

Question
What happens during telophase?
Answer
  • The spindle fibres break down
  • The nucleolus begins to form
  • The chromosomes line up along the equator of the cell
  • A nuclear membrane forms around the cell
