The chromosomes are packages of DNA. As
humans, we have 23 pairs. So you got one
chromosome #1 from your mom and one from your dad.
When a cell divides, first each chromosome makes
a copy of itself, then the copy goes into one of
the new cells, and the original goes into the
other. That means that the two new cells have the
same information as the original cell.
