MCQ on Spirogyra

Sourav Bio

Spirogyra is a genus of freshwater green algae in the division Chlorophyta. It is commonly found in freshwater environments and is known for its long, spiral-shaped chloroplasts. The cells of Spirogyra are cylindrical or spiral in shape, and they are joined end to end to form a filament. Spirogyra is a primary producer, meaning it is a source of food for other organisms in the ecosystem, and it obtains its energy through photosynthesis.

Spirogyra reproduces both sexually and asexually. During sexual reproduction, two cells fuse to form a zygote which then undergoes meiosis to form new cells. During asexual reproduction, the filaments can break and each fragment can grow into a new filament.

In addition to its importance as a primary producer, Spirogyra also has significant scientific value as a model organism for studying the structure and function of algae, as well as for understanding the process of sexual reproduction in algae.
