Answer:

The process by which the cytoplasm of eukaryotic cell divides to produce two cells is called cytokinesis.

Explanation:

The process by which the cytoplasm of eukaryotic cell divides to produce two cell is termed cytokinesis.

Mitosis consists of two steps; Karyokinesis and cytokinesis.
The nucleus divides to form two identical nuclei in karyokinesis.
Karyokinesis is followed by cytokinesis in which the cytoplasm divides to form two cells so that each cell contains a single nucleus.

Two cells thus formed by mitotic division are identical to each other.

The process of cytokinesis is different in plant cell and animal cell as the plant cell is covered by cell membrane and cell wall and the animal cell is covered over by cell membrane only.
