why 2nd is incorrect
Q.18. Select an incorrect statement w.r.t. metaphase
(1) Spindle fibres are attached to small disc shaped structures at the surface ofcentromeres called kinetochores
(2) The plane of alignment of the homologous pair of chromosomes at metaphase is referred to as the metaphasic plate
(3) Chromosome appears to be made up of two sister chromatids
(4) The size of chromosomes can be studied inthis phase

Dear student,
Answer is 2) The plane of alignment of the homologous pair of chromosome at metaphase is referred to as metaphasic plate.
Option 2) is incorrect because the alignment of homologous pair of chromosome occurs at the equatorial plate during metaphase but when the aligned chromosome attaches with the spindle fibre then  they are called metaphasic plate.
