Solution

The correct option is B Bacteria are closely related to each other than to viruses and vice-versa.
  • Worms show slower rate of multiplication than bacteria, fungi and viruses.
  • All bacteria are taxonomically more closely related to each other than to viruses and vice-versa. This indicates that various life processes are similar in many bacteria, but these are not seen in viruses.
  • Due to which a drug that is effective on one bacteria is likely to be effective on another bacteria but not against virus. E.g., Penicillin, which is effective against a wide range of bacterial infections but not against viral infections.
