 3

 Produces all cells of the body other than gametes.

 Produces male and female gametes

 4

 The steps of mitosis are Interphase, Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase and Cytokinesis

 The steps of meiosis are Interphase, Prophase I, Metaphase I, Anaphase I, Telophase I, Prophase II, Metaphase II, Anaphase II, Telophase II

 5

 Function of mitosis is to carry out cellular reproduction & general growth and repair of the body

  The function of meiosis is in sexual reproduction.
