In which of the following groups of organisms, food material is broken down outside the body and then absorbed in?
(A) mushroom, green plants, amoeba
(B) yeast, mushroom, bread mould
(C) paramecium, amoeba, cuscuta
(D) cuscuta, lice, tapeworm
There are 3 types of heterotrophic nutrition by organisms:
: In this, organisms
break down food outside
Example - Fungi, Bread moulds, yeast
: In this, organisms derive food from the body of
another living organism
without killing it
- Cuscuta, Tapeworm
- Holozoic Nutrition : In this, organisms break down food inside their body. Example - Human Beings, Animals
Now, let’s check our option:
- Mushrooms have
nutrition, Green plants are
, and amoeba follows
Thus, Option A is incorrect .
- Yeast, Mushrooms and Bread mold have
Thus, Option B is correct
- Paramecium and Amoeba have
nutrition, Cuscuta have parasitic
Thus, Option C is incorrect .
- Cuscuta, Lice and Tapeworm have
Thus, Option D is incorrect .
So, the correct answer is (b)
