What role does a nucleus play in reproduction?

It performs meiosis to divide its genetic material so it may be passed on to the next generation.

What do you understand by the statement DNA is the primary genetic material of the cell?

DNA is the primary genetic material of all cellular organisms and is housed in the nucleus or cytoplasm. DNA controls the cells functions.

What will happen to a cell if the nucleus is absent?

If a cell lacks a nucleus, it will not be able to carry out essential functions like DNA replication, transcription, and translation. This will impair the cell's ability to control gene expression and produce necessary proteins, ultimately leading to cell death.

What does the phrase successive generation mean?

Successive generation refers to the sequence of offspring produced from one generation to the next within a species. It signifies the continuous passage of genetic material and traits from parent to offspring.

How do traits differ from one generation to the next?

Genetic traits differ from one generation to the next because the next generation has genes from both parents, unless of course you are talking about a clone. Also, the genetics of the next generation can be from recessive traits of the parents.

If the grandparents generation had twins what generation is next to have multiples?

Although there is a genetic component to twin births, many multiple births are not genetic. If one generation has twins, the next generation may also have twins. The likelihood of twins reduces with succeeding generations that do not have twins. Multiple births does not have patters such as generation skipping, and is never guaranteed.
