Question

An amoeba is a single-celled organism that feeds on algae, plant cells, and bacteria. When an amoeba feeds, it first makes contact with the food particle. Next, the amoeba starts to surround the particle. Once the particle is completely engulfed, it is surrounded by a layer of the amoeba’s membrane, forming a vesicle. The pH in the vesicle is then lowered and the contents are degraded.

What type of transport is involved in this process?

A.
endocytosis
B.
diffusion
C.
passive transport
D.
exocytosis

    Answer:

    A.  endocytosis

    Explanation:

    Endocytosis is the type of transport that is involved in this process because it engulf the food material. Amoeba engulfs food particles with the help of its pseudopodia which are the projections of cell membranes. A food vacuole is formed around the food particle. This process of engulfing a matter by the projections of the cell membrane to form a vacuole is called endocytosis.
