Best answer
  • Meiosis is a specialized type of cell division that occurs in cells involved in sexual reproduction, such as germ cells (sperm and egg cells). 
  • It consists of two successive divisions, meiosis I and meiosis II, resulting in the formation of four daughter cells, each with half the number of chromosomes as the parent cell. 
  • Meiosis is essential for generating genetic diversity and ensuring the proper number of chromosomes in offspring.
