1. ____________or___________: Cell growth and protein production stop at this stage in the cell cycle. All of the cell's energy is focused on the complex and orderly division into two similar daughter cells. Mitosis is much shorter than interphase, lasting perhaps only one to two hours. As in both G1 and G2, there is a Checkpoint in the middle of mitosis (Metaphase Checkpoint) that ensures the cell is ready to complete cell division.

(a) Mitosis, M Phase
(b) Interphase, Mitosis
(c) DNA Synthesis, Mitosis
(d) Metaphase, Motosis.

(d) Metaphase, Motosis

The correct answer is (a) Mitosis, M Phase.

Because the question is about the Cell Cycle, let's look more closely what occurs in this cycle.
