If there are 6 chromosomes in the egg cell of a house fly how many chromosomes would be in the body cell? 12
What is the reason meiosis takes place? To prepare the cells for sexual reproduction ( to create the sperm and egg ).
Are the offspring ( children ) of sexual reproduction genetically identical to the parent? No, the are similar but not identical.
Are the offspring of asexual reproduction genetically identical to the parent? Yes, there is no mixing of genes to create the offspring.
How are sex cells different than body cells? Sex cells have 1/2 the number of chromosomes as the body cells.
How do the number of chromosomes at the end of mitosis compare to the number of chromosomes at the end of meiosis? The number of chromosomes at the end of meiosis are 1/2 the number of chromosomes at the end of mitosis.
What is the process call when sex cells are formed? Meiosis
What does the chromosome theory state? Genes are carried from parents to offspring on chromosomes.

Is there a relationship between the number of chromosomes and how advanced the organism is? No
Chromosomes are located in which organelle of the cell? Nucleus
Which reproduction, sexual or asexual, results in offspring with more genetic diversity? Sexual reproduction
Offspring have very little genetic diversity with which type of reproduction? Asexual
What is budding? Asexual reproduction where new individuals form buds on an existing individual. They break off and form new organism.
Is fragmentation a form of asexual or sexual reproduction? Asexual
What is fragmentation? Parts of an organism break off, each piece will continue to grow.
