    Down Accepted answer

    A liver cell, which is an example of a eukaryotic somatic cell. Undergo mitosis (in the metaphase, the second stage of mitosis).

    What do we know about this stage of mitosis?

    The chromosomes have already condensed

    The nuclear enveloped has already fragmented

    The chromosomes are aligned in the metaphase plate Some chromosomes are floating in the cytoplasm.

    The mitochondria are providing ATP for the process to happen.

    The question asks you which of the organelles shown exist during metaphase mitosis, and ALSO can only be found in eukaryotic cells! (read the question carefully)

    The only right answer is mitochondria, which can only be found in eukaryotic cells.
