In metaphase of mitosis, duplicated DNA molecules are identical chromatids attached at their centromeres. In metaphase II, the chromatids are ones which have undergone recombination and are non-identical.
Work Step by Step
This question asks you to focus on one key difference between mitosis and meiosis-- recombination --and what difference that makes at the stage of metaphase. See. Fig. 13.10 for a helpful graphic.
