Slime Moulds are unicellular saprophyte.
Slime Moulds are unicellular saprophyte. They are often present as an aggregate called plasmodium, which is a multinucleated stage. They have characteristics of both fungi and animals. They are kept in the kingdom Protista. 1. Slime Moulds were a Part of Which of the Following Kingdoms? (a) Monera (b) Protista (c) Fungi (d) Plantae Ans: Protista 2. Characteristic Structure Found in Slime Mould is (a) pseudoelaters (b) elaters (c) capitulum (d) capillitium Ans: elaters 3. In a Cellular Slime Mould, Spore Formation Takes Place in (a) plasmodium (b) sporangium (c) sporophore (d) pseudoplasmodium Ans: sporangium 4. Spores of Slime Moulds Develop into (a) Amoeboid cells (b) biflagellated cells (c) swarm cells (d) All of the above Ans: All of the above 5. Which is the Example of Slime Mould? (a) Anabaena (b) Rhizopus (c) Physarum (d) Thiobacillus Ans: Physarum 6. Slime Moulds, Algae, Protozoa are Related to Each Other in Having (a) eukaryotic cell (b) prokaryotic cell (c) flagella (d) pseudopodia Ans: eukaryotic cell 7. A Feature that Categorizes a “True Slime Mould” is (a) occurs as an independent cell (b) a multinucleate plasmodial stage (c) secretes mucoidal exudate (d) None of the above Ans: a multinucleate plasmodial stage 8. Slug Formation is Induced By (a) overcrowding (b) plentiful resources (c) both (a) and (b) (d) unfavourable conditions Ans: unfavourable conditions 9. Slime Mould Differ from Fungi in Having (a) phagocytosis mode of nutrition (b) amoeboid cells (c) both (a) and (b) (d) none Ans: both (a) and (b) 10. Sporangia of Slime Mould Contain (a) haploid spores (b) diploid zygotes (c) gametes (d) none Ans: haploid spores
