Which of the following statements correctly explains why gametes are considered to be haploid at the end of Meiosis I?

A

Crossing over occurs in Prophase I and this process only occurs in haploid cells.

B

Homologous pairs separate at the end of Telophase I, making the cells haploid.

C

When tetrads line up along the metaphase plate in Metaphase I, this creates haploid cells.

D

The homologous pairs pull apart at Anaphase I, and this creates haploid cells.

E

Sister chromatids separate at the end of Telophase I, making the cells haploid.
