Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follows by choosing the correct option. (NIFT-UG)

Fungi form an isolated group within the plant kingdom and indeed are regarded by many as forming a
separate kingdom of their own. They differ from all other plants by their lack of the green pigment chlorophyll,
in the construction of thread-like units known as hyphae and their method of reproduction.
Reproduction occurs by spores either of sexual of asexual origin. The spore germinates, sending out a
germ-tube that elongates to produce a thread-like, usually septate, filament that then branches out repeatedly. By
continued ramification these threads or hyphae (singular hyphae) form a cobweb or felt-like sheet known as a
mycelium. In most instances fusion between two hyphae, usually from different mycelia, must occur before a
fruit body can be produced. Even then this process will only take place given the correct climatic factors and a
sufficient food supply.
Fungi differ from the higher plant forms by the absence of the green pigment chlorophyll, which
enables plants to photosynthesize, By this process green plants to obtain their carbohydrates; the chlorophyll in
their leaves fixes atmosphere carbon dioxide in the presence of sunlight and water to manufacture sugar for
their nutrition. As fungi are unable to do this they have to obtain their carbohydrates from decomposed animal
or plant tissues. Hence they are found in habitats rich in rotting vegetation such as woodland, grassland,
compost heaps, sawdust piles, on dung or manure heaps and on burnt ground colonized by moss. Fungi
obtaining their food materials directly from living plants or animals are the woody bracket fungi and mildews
respectively; diseases of man such as athlete’s foot, ringworm and farmer’s lung are also caused by parasitic
