    Answer:

    The right choice is (A) A bacterium splits into two separate organisms

    Explanation:

    Bacteria divides by  process called binary fission. It is a process by which bacteria asexually divide into two identical daughter cells. During this process, the bacterial chromosome replicates and the two copies are attached to different parts of the cell membrane. When conditions are favorable such as the right temperature and nutrients are available, some bacteria like Escherichia coli can divide every 20 minutes.

    Answer:  A. A bacterium splits into two separate organisms.

    The asexual reproduction is a process that does not involve meiosis and occurs when the offspring arises from a single organism. Thus, it inherits the genes coming only from one individual.

    All bacteria reproduce asexually as the original individual splits into two “offspring” cells. Due to this, they are able to reproduce extremely fast, and harmful genetic mutations are inconsequential to the whole population. It is enough for only a few individuals to survive in order for the population to recover quickly.
