    4 Fig. 4.1 is a diagram drawn from a photomicrograph of an animal cell undergoing meiosis.


    (a) Identify the stage of meiosis shown in Fig. 4.1.

    ................................ ................................ ................................ ................................ .....[2]

    figure attached

    th answer is : metaphase 2
    from which angle does this look like metaphase 2?????

    From my point of view, you can tell theres two cells right. So it must be ....(something)..... 2. The spindle fibres here are not clear, but if I had to name this phase myself, I would guess metaphase 2, purely because the chromosomes are being pulled apart, if you can make it out? Plus they're not quite apart yet, so it can't be anaphase.

    You can see that it is happening in two cells right? Indicating meiosis 1 has already happened. In metaphase 2, the spindle fibres pull the chromosomes to the poles of the cell, away from eachother, splitting if you like right? Can you make out that they are being pulled away from eachother?(although I do agree with you because nothing is pulling them in the picture) and that if they wernt being pulled away from eachother, the lines wouldn't be in the pattern they're shown in. This is quite hard to explain and im not the best at explaining things. If you want, I can find a link for you showing you how meiosis occurs. You know about all the other phases right?
