Question

Which of the following is the main difference between binary fission and budding?


  1. Budding only occurs in unfavorable conditions.

  2. In budding the daughter cell does not separate from the parent while in fission separation occurs.

  3. Unlike binary fission, budding does not produce a new individual but allows the organism to become bigger.

  4. In budding, the daughter cell is smaller than the parent while in binary fission two equally sized daughters are produced.


Solution

The correct option is D

In budding, the daughter cell is smaller than the parent while in binary fission two equally sized daughters are produced.


In budding, the parent cell grows a bud which develops into a new individual. This daughter separates from the parent and is smaller than the parent.

In binary fission however, the parent splits into equal sized daughter cells.
