Solution

The correct option is C Mitotic division
The meristematic cells undergo continuous mitotic divisions to give rise to new daughter cells. Mitosis is the division for growth and repair in eukaryotic cells.

Meiotic division involves the formation of gametes. One diploid cell divides to form four haploid daughter cells.

Binary fission is commonly seen in prokaryotic cells where a single cell divides to form two daughter cells.

Multiple fission is seen in unicellular eukaryotes where a single cell undergoes multiple divisions to produce many nuclei and each nucleus gives rise to a new cell.
