    Answer:

    C) Binary fission does not require breaking down a nuclear membrane

    Explanation:

    Binary fission is the process that occurs in some organisms in which organism divided simply to produce two daughter organisms of exactly same genetics as of parent organisms. However, Mitosis is the process that occurs in higher organisms in which cells divide to produce daughter cells that are exactly same as parent cells.

    If we look at the process of Binary fission it has four major steps:

    • 1: The step in which organism like bacteria copies its DNA.
    • 2: Bacteria grow in size.
    • 3: After some time separation of DNA occurs in to two parts.
    • 4: Two new cells (bacteria ) are produced genetically identical.

    So we see that in smaller organisms like bacteria, there is no nuclear membrane, therefore, separation of nuclear membrane is not required. This makes C as the best option.

    Hope it helps!
