How division takes twice in meiosis?
It's more specialized, so there are more steps
First, the chromosome (DNA) replicates just like in mitosis, but then, unlike mitosis, the homologous chromosomes cross over, creating two unique sets of DNA. These two sets turn into individual daughter cells. Then, each cell divides again, leaving you with four unique cells.
This process is used to reduce diploid cells (two sets of chromosomes) to haploids (one set). In females, this process is used in the ovaries to produce eggs, for example, which are haploid.
