I suggest you study the process. You won't understand anything if you do not know a thing about meiosis.
Meiosis leads to genetic variation by:
-crossing-over
-chromosome danse
-the fact there are 2 cells involved in fertilisation
Again, I advise you to read the tutorial on the site. It should give you an idea about what is going on
