Summary Introduction

Concept introduction: Yeast are single-celled microorganisms, classified under the Kingdom Fungi. Although they are single-celled, they have their cellular organization very similar to higher organisms. Unlike other single-celled organisms like bacteria, they have a definite nucleus in which genetic content is present. Therefore, it is categorized under eukaryotes.

Explanation of Solution

Reason for correct answer: Yeasts that comes under the Kingdom Fungi most commonly reproduce asexually by budding. During budding, mitosis is followed by uneven cytoplasmic division, which results in the formation of descendent cells with a little amount of cytoplasm buds from its parent.
