Explain the process of cell division

Cell Division occurs through either mitosis ( in the body cells) or meiosis (in the reproductive organs).
Mitosis consists of interphase, prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase, during which numerous cel changes occur and it gets divided into two cells by the end.
In meiosis the first division is reductional division resulting in haploid number of chromosomes in the daughter cells. The second division is of mitotic type.

Mitosis is a process of nuclear division in eukaryotic cells that occurs when a parent cell divides to produce two identical daughter cells. During cell division, mitosis refers specifically to the separation of the duplicated genetic material carried in the nucleus. Mitosis is conventionally divided into five stages known as prophase, prometaphase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase. While mitosis is taking place, there is no cell growth and all of the cellular energy is focused on cell division.
