- Binary fission
- Multiple fission
Study the following diagrams showing various stages of binary fission in Amoeba:
The correct sequence of these diagrams should be:
(A) I, IV, III, II, V
(B) I, III, IV, II, V
(C) I, II, IV, III, V
(D) I, II, III, IV, V
Name one organism which reproduces by binary fission and another which reproduces by multiple fission.
State whether the above named organisms are animals or plants.
The micro-organism which reproduces by multiple fission is the one which causes the disease known as :
There are four tiny organisms A, B, C and D. The organism A is a parasitic protozoan which causes a disease known as kala-azar. The organism B is a microscopic single-celled animal which causes malaria disease in human beings. The organism C is a unicellular animal which can change its body shape according to need, it has no fixed shape. The organism D is also a unicellular animal which is slipper-shaped having a large number of tiny hair all around its body.
(a) Name the organisms A, B, C and D
(b) Name one characteristic body feature of organism A.
(c) Name the insect which carries organism B and transmits it from one person to another.
(d) What name is given to the asexual method of reproduction of (i) organism A, and (ii) organism B?
(e) Where do organisms C and D live?
Name the type of asexual reproduction in which two individuals are formed from a single parent and the parental identity is lost. Draw the initial and the final stages of this type of reproduction. State the event with which this reproduction starts.
