This shows indepenant assortment.
I thought that all the possible gametes would be gentically varaible,
but look at the end, the two cells on top of each other are the same!

You are dealing with 2 pairs of chromosomes and so the number of genetically different gametes produced by independent assortment is 4 (2 to the power of the number of pairs i.e. 2 squared). They've shown 8 cells but only 4 different types.
