Expert Answer:

Meiosis is a type of cell division in sexually reproducing organisms that reduces the number of chromosomes in reproductive cells from diploid to haploid, leading to the production of gametes in animals and spores in plants.
It results in formation of four daughter cells from one parent cell.
