Mitosis - cells that divide and make another genetically identical cell, the new/daughter cell has the same number of chromosome as the mother/original cell, mitosis is useful for renewing damaged tissues/organs/cells. when mitosis occur in reproduction it makes clones

Meiosis - a type of cell division that only occur with Sex cells/gametes, the daughter cell has half the chromosome as mother cell. the new cells are genetically different.

So meiosis occurs in sex cells.
