How Do Organisms Reproduce?


Asexual reproduction takes place through budding in

(a) amoeba.

(b) yeast.

(c) plasmodium.

(d) leishmania.


The production of new organisms from the existing organisms of the same species is known as reproduction. In an asexual mode of reproduction, only one parent is involved in the generation of a new individual. Budding is a type of asexual reproduction that occurs in yeast. In this method, the yeast cell develops a small outgrowth and the nucleus of the parent cell divides and moves into the outgrowth. This outgrowth grows and separates from the parent cell.

Hence, the correct answer is (b) yeast.
