All fungi _____.

  1. a. are multicelled
  2. b. form flagellated spores
  3. c. are heterotrophs
  4. d. live on land

Summary Introduction

Concept introduction:  The organisms that cannot prepare their own food and depend on other group of living creatures or dead matter are called heterotrophs. A fungus is eukaryotic heterotroph that can extract the energy stored in the bonds of organic compounds, such as carbohydrate and protein from living or dead organisms.

Explanation of Solution

Reason for the correct answer: A fungus is a spore-forming eukaryotic organism that depends on other living or dead matters for food. It has no chlorophyll and hence photosynthesis cannot take place, instead they have the ability to break down all sorts of organic matters like dead leaves, dead wood, and dead animals.

 Option c. is given as, “are heterotrophs”. Since heterotrophs are a group of organisms that cannot produce their own food instead depend on others, option c. is the correct answer.

Reasons for the incorrect answers:

Option a. is given as “are multicelled”.

There are several fungi like yeast, which exists as a single-celled organism, while the other groups like mushrooms are multicelled...
