I was given a mulitple choice, but for this one I am unsure.
Q. If one were looking at a large number of mitotic cells in embryonic tissue, one might expect to find cells of the four principal stages in the following order, from most abundant to least abundan:
a)anaphase, prophase, telophase, metaphase.
b) prophase, telophase, metaphase, anaphase.
c) telophase, metaphase, prophase, anaphase.
d) prophase, anaphase, telophase, metaphase.
I read my textbook but that didn’t help me determine, so I did some online research and came upon:
http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_stage_in … st_time_in
I then decided that whatever the % of cell in the cell stages must correspond to the amount of cells in that cycle. So, from accending to decending % I used that to decide the abundancy. Hence the higher the % the higher the amount of cells.
So, the closest matching answer I thought was:
b) prophase (14%) , telophase (3%) , metaphase (4%), anaphase (0.8%).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
found data on this site- it corresponds more closely with option d.
Nope both sites agree. And option b seems to be correct.
Thanks guys. =D
