Solution :-

The differences between cytokinesis and karyokinesis are

Cytokinesis Karyokinesis
‘Cyto’stands for the cytoplasm and
kinesis for division. So, Cytokinesis is
the physical method of cell division,
where the cytoplasm of a parental cell
is divided into two daughter cells.
Karyon denotes nucleus and
kinesis denotes division. So
karyokinesis is the physical
method of the nucleus division.
Karyokinesis precedes cytokinesis.
It occurs at the end of the M-phase
after the nuclear division is over.
It takes place during the M-phase of
the cell cycle.
