D)the chromosomes pairs do not separate E) the daughter cells are all genetically identical to the mother cell and each other.

i say its (A) cos the gametes ONLY undergo meiosis cos in (B) the chromosomes are ALSO duplicated in mitosis ( i guess..) (C) i dont have an accurate answer for this one.. but look at this: (it will help you ALOT) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyploid (D) yes, chromosomes pairs do separate and it actually separates during ANAPHASE 1 (E) umm... i dont have an answer to this one either.. -sorrryyyyyy- BUT I DONT THINK SO..

okay thank you

I am sure it is A because chromosomes are duplicated once and in C no they are not polyploid, in C actually the chromosomes do separate and in E no the daughter cells have different genetic material from their mother because crossing-over occurs.
