"Cell division is like making a photocopy of the entire blueprint of a completed building and then giving the copied blueprint to another contractor to build a completely new building." Is this an accurate analogy of the process of cell division? "
"The analogy is only partially accurate. All of the DNA (the blueprint) is copied before cell division. However, an entire new cell is not constructed using this DNA; rather, components of the original parent cell are divided equally between the two daughter cells."
