    A is correct, as there are more than 2 paired sets of chromosomes.

    B is correct as the chromosome number of next generation will be more.

    C is also correct, as meiosis 2 division can go right or wrong way, producing a triploid or tetraploid plant.

    Hence D is the correct choice.

    no, the two daughter cells that consequence from meiosis a million are no longer gametes. The sister chromatids nevertheless might desire to chop up in meiosis 2 as a fashion to form the gametes. The cells are, even if, haploid after meiosis a million using fact they only have one replica of each chromosome. they do no longer look to be, even if, gametes yet.
