An amoeba ingests food by

Option c) pseudopodia

Explanation

Nutrition in an Amoeba occurs through a process called phagocytosis where the entire organism pretty much engulfs the food it plans on eating up.

  • Ingestion is the process of taking in the food into the body either by swallowing or absorbing it.
  • Amoeba pushes out the pseudopodia to encircle the food and engulfs it forming a food vacuole. This process is known as phagocytosis.
