During prophase the chromosomes all gather in a plane across the middle of the cell.
This statement is False. (The above describes metaphase).

This statement is false: "During prophase the chromosomes all gather in a plane across the middle of the cell." Prophase is the first stage of mitosis. During this stage, the DNA begins to condense into discrete bodies called chromosomes...near the end of prophase the nuclear membrane breaks down.
The next stage is Metaphase, during which the nuclear membrane disappears completely, and chromosomes align at the metaphase plate (a plane that is equally distant from the two spindle poles).
