What is the difference between meiosis II and mitosis?

1 Answer


Meiosis II produces 4 haploid cells, whereas mitosis produces 2 diploid cells.


Meiosis II is a continuation of Meiosis I. In Meiosis I, two cells are produced which then go into Meiosis II and further divide into 4 cells. Meiosis is also a process of forming the ''sex cells'' aka. sperm and egg.
