Solution

The correct option is B is an inclusive process with cell division
For unicellular organisms, cell division by mitosis and reproductions are inclusive processes. Cell division & reproduction are one and the same in these organisms as when a single-celled organism divides, it creates two cells that function as two new unicellular individual offsprings.
So, reproduction can be considered synonymous with growth as there is an increase in the number of cells after each division.
