Solution

The correct option is C Fungi reproduce through spores while plants reproduce through seeds
Fungi do not produce their own food and have to obtain it from other sources. The cell walls of fungi are usually made of chitin (also found in the exoskeleton of insects, crustaceans, and other arthropods), whereas the cell walls of plants are made of cellulose. Spores are produced by both fungi and plants. In fungi, spores are asexual while in plants they are sexual.
