    Mitosis refers to nuclear division. Cytokinesis refers to cytoplasmic division.

    If mitosis & cytokinesis are normal, the two new daughter cells will have the same number (N or diploid number) of chromosomes as the original cell.

    Sometimes things go wrong and mitosis occurs with abnormal cytokinesis , resulting in nondisjunction. In this abnormal case the chromosome numbers are not equal .

    It halves it to two daughter cells. So it would be half from the original.
