Write T for true or F for false.

  1. During mitosis the cell’s mitochondria divides into 4 new nuclei and 2 sets of DNA is distributed.

  2. The first stage of the cell cycle is replication.

  3. Cell division allows organisms to grow, repair damaged structures, and reproduce.

  4. Metaphase each chromosome attaches to a spindle fiber at its centromere.
