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

Audio Explanation:

(1) Cell division leads to growth in multicelluular organisms, in unicellular organisms it leads to both (growth & reproduction).
