______ are fungi that produce flagellated spores.

  1. a. Chytrids
  2. b. Sac fungi
  3. c. Zygote fungi
  4. d. Club fungi

Summary Introduction

Concept introduction: Chytrids are the fungal group that has a vessel-like structure called sporangium in which flagellated spores are produced. According to the recent evolutionary studies, chytrids are one of the oldest fungal lineages. Members of this fungal group are decomposers and survive in a variety of habitats.

Explanation of Solution

Reason for the correct answer: Chytrids are the fungal group that form flagellated spores. Since their spores have flagellum, they are able to move and aid in reproduction. The mycelium of this group is made of hyphal strands and these hyphae are not separated by cross-walls between them.

Option a. is given as, “Chytrids”. Since chytrids are the only group of fungi that produces flagellated spores, option a. is the correct answer.

Reasons for the incorrect answers:

Option b. is given as, “sac fungi”. Sac fungi are not able to produce flagellated spore, rather they reproduce by means of budding...
