Consider the following two statements:
I. In the single-celled organisms, we are not very clear about the usage of the two terms – growth and reproduction.
II. When it comes to unicellular organisms like bacteria, unicellular algae or amoeba, reproduction is synonymous with growth, i.e., increase in number of cells.
(1) Both I and II are true and II explains I
(2) Both I and II are true but II does not explain I
(3) I is true but II is false
(4) Both I and II are false
(1) Cell division leads to growth in multicelluular organisms, in unicellular organisms it leads to both (growth & reproduction).
