How many chromosomes are in the original cell compared to those in the new cells formed by cell division?

a.) the same amout
b.) half as many
c.) twice as many
d.) four times as many

  • Science -

    If it is meiosis, then it is twice the number in the original cell. If the cell division is mitosis, then it is the same amount. These are two different types of cell division.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
