    Answer:

    Face opposite spindle poles

    Explanation:

    Meiosis is a kind of cell division that involves the formation of daughter cells with a reduced chromosomal number (by half). Since the chromosome number is reduced, it occurs in a two step division process viz: Meiosis I and Meiosis II. In meiosis I, homologous chromosomes (similar but non-identical chromosomes received from each parent) separate.

    In the Metaphase stage of meiosis I specifically, spindle microtubules from opposite poles of the cell attaches to the kinetochores of each chromosome and aligns them at the equator. This alignment is done in such a way that each homologous chromosome of a tetrad or bivalent (pairing of homologous chromosomes) faces opposite spindle pole in order for their separation to opposite poles in Anaphase to be accomplished.
