A

Answer: A. prophase, metaphase, anaphase, telophase

Microscopic organisms are capable of growing via cell replication. When a single-celled organism divides and in the process produces identical daughter cells, it is called mitosis. Mitosis is very essential for growth and also for replacing worn-out cells. The process of mitosis happens in five carefully coordinated processes. They include, interphase, prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase.

Interphase simply describes the normal structure of the cells. When the chromosomes condense and the membranes around the nucleus dissolve, this stage is known as prophase. The chromosomes line up at the equator, the centrioles are moved to the poles, the chromatids are pulled apart and the single cell pinches just at the middle to produce two individual daughter cells. This is the final phase of mitosis called the telophase.
