Solution

Nutrition in amoeba takes place in five steps:

During ingestion, Amoeba forms finger like projections called pseudopodia which engulf the food and form a cavity called food vacuole. Digestion takes place in the food vacuole with the help of digestive juices secreted by it. After digestion, food is absorbed and assimilated and the undigested food is egested out of its body.
