A mutation occurs on chromosome 18 of a somatic cell. Which statement best describes how the mutation will be propagated?

(1) Answers

The cells in a sexually reproducing organism's body may be classified as somatic, those that do not participate in reproduction, and gametogenic cells, which participate in reproduction. Somatic cells create genetically identical daughter cells through the process of mitosis. Therefore, this mutation will pass the mutation to its two daughter cells after mitosis.
