When the process of meiosis is complete, the result is:
Four haploid daughter cells
Mitosis involves crossing over and the production of haploid daughter cells.
Which choice best distinguishes between mitosis and meiosis?
Mitosis produces somatic cells that are genetically identical to the parent cell, whereas meiosis produces sex cells that are genetically different from the parent cell.

crossing over, and it occurs in meiosis
A replicated chromosome consists of two identical structures known as:
