| Which statement best describes a difference between cell division in plant and animal cells?|
In animal cells, cytoplasmic division is accomplished by a
In plant cells, cytoplasmic division is accomplished by a
In plant cells, centrosomes have a distinct role in spindle formation, while in animal cells centrosomes do not function during cell division.
In animal cells, replication of chromosomes occurs during the nondividing phase, while in plant cells replication occurs when the nuclear membrane disintegrates.
Correct Answer Number: 1
Explanation: Since plant cells have a rigid cell wall, they can not pinch in. Therefore, a cell plate forms between the two newly forming cells. A centriole is an animal organelle that directs the movement of chromosomes during mitosis and is involved in spindle formation.
