"Gametes must be produced by meiosis for sexual reproduction". Why is it so?

Answer :

Meiosis is a reduction division as it reduces the number of chromosomes to half, hence the gametes produced through meiosis are haploid. This is essential because when the male and female gametes fuse during the process of fertilization, the normal diploid number of chromosomes is regained.
