      Meiosis is the process by which a parental sex cell is divided into 4 daughter cells with half the chromosomes of the parental cells

      Meiosis is a process where a single cell (parent cell) divides twice to produce four cells (daughter cells) that each only have half the number of the original parental chromosomes , hence they are referred to as haploid. An example of cells produced by meiosis are gametes (sex cells)
