When would an organism need to undergo the process of meiosis?

What would happen if meiosis did not occur

I will gladly critique your thinking on this.

mitosis and meiosis are important because they are a form of cell replication,

mitosis- to repair dead cells, as the daughter cell produced is identical to the parent.

meiosis- to produce sex cells, sperm/ova, produce cells which contain half the amount of genetic material as that of other non-sex cells.
