i) In this time, the mother cell increases in size and its nucleus divide twice, mitotically giving rise to four nuclei

ii) Each nucleus is surrounded by cytoplasm, turns into a spore.

iii) Each spore Is then covered with a thick cell wall Now this type of cells are called Ascospores.

iv) The Ascospores, surrounded by a thick wall as a whole is known as Ascus.
