Lesson Worksheet: Meiosis Science

In this worksheet, we will practice describing the stages of meiosis, recalling the products of meiosis, and explaining how events that occur during meiosis will increase genetic variation.

Q1:

Which gametes are produced by flowering plants?

  • APollen and sperm
  • BSpores and ova (eggs)
  • CSpores and hyphae
  • DSperm and ova (eggs)
  • EPollen and ova (eggs)

Q2:

What are the products of meiosis?

  • ATwo cells, each containing the same number of chromosomes as the original (parent) cell
  • BTwo cells, each containing half the number of chromosomes of the original (parent) cell
  • CFour cells, each containing double the number of chromosomes of the original (parent) cell
  • DFour cells, each containing half the number of chromosomes of the original (parent) cell

Q3:

The stages of the first meiotic division are listed below:

  • Prophase I
  • Metaphase I
  • Anaphase I
  • Telophase I

In which stage do the spindle fibers move the chromosomes to opposite ends of the cell?

  • AProphase I
  • BTelophase I
  • CMetaphase I
  • DAnaphase I

Q4:

Which gametes are produced by humans?

  • APollen and sperm
  • BSpores and ova (eggs)
  • CSperm and ova (eggs)
  • DPollen and ova (eggs)
  • ESpores and hyphae

Q5:

Which of the following is a defining feature of a gamete?

  • AA gamete contains double the genetic material of a normal body cell.
  • BA gamete is able to replicate and divide indefinitely.
  • CA gamete is formed by mitosis, not meiosis.
  • DA gamete contains half the genetic material of a normal body cell.

Q6:

The stages of the first meiotic division are listed below:

  • Prophase I
  • Metaphase I
  • Anaphase I
  • Telophase I

In which stage do the chromosomes become visible and the nuclear membrane begins to break down?

  • ATelophase I
  • BProphase I
  • CMetaphase I
  • DAnaphase I

Q7:

What specialized cells in humans are produced by meiosis?

  • AMuscle cells
  • BSkin cells
  • CNeurons
  • DGametes
  • EEpithelial cells

Q8:

The stages of the first meiotic division are listed below:

  • Prophase I
  • Metaphase I
  • Anaphase I
  • Telophase I

In which stage do nuclear membranes start to re-form?

  • AMetaphase I
  • BProphase I
  • CAnaphase I
  • DTelophase I

Q9:

The stages of the first meiotic division are listed below:

  • Prophase I
  • Metaphase I
  • Anaphase I
  • Telophase I

In which stage do pairs of chromosomes line up in the middle of the cell?

  • ATelophase I
  • BProphase I
  • CMetaphase I
  • DAnaphase I

Q10:

What stage happens before meiosis I but not before meiosis II?

  • AAnaphase
  • BTelophase
  • CCytokinesis
  • DInterphase
  • EProphase
