Identify the meiotic stage in which the homologous chromosomes separate while the sister chromatids remain associated at their centromeres

  • metaphase I

  • metaphase II

  • anaphase I

  • anaphase II

Answer

C.

anaphase I

In anaphase - I of meiosis homologous chromosomes separate and pass towards different poles of the spindle creating two haploid sets of chromosomes.
During anaphase-II of meiosis centromere of two chromatids of a chromosome separate. The separated chromatids become independent daughter chromosome.
