      Sir please tell me which is the longest phase of cell divison is it

      Prophase or G1 or metaphase

      I think it should be prophase am i correct if not please tell me the correct ans

      I would say G1, though that is not a phase of cell division; rather it is a part of interphase (part of cell cycle where the cell is not actively dividing).

      The length of the cell cycle in most higher eukaryotes takes about 18-24 hours. Mitosis itself only takes 1-2 hours.

      definitely not metaphase, which is the shortest phase.. 😉

      Go with Jammerz and look at G1 being part of interphase. Interphase is the longest by far in most cases.

      Alot of transformation occurs in interphase so it is most likely the correct answer.

      metaphase is the longest phase

      i think it’s interphase, the mitosis of an onion root cell for instances, prophase till telophase happens for about 1 hour, the interphase happens for about 23 hours (10 hours for the G1, 10 hours for the S phase and 3 hours for the G2).
