Which of the following is the correct sequence of three steps in the sexual cycle of fungi?
A. Mitosis -> Meiosis -> Fertilization
B. Plasmogamy -> Karyogamy -> Meiosis
C. Mitosis -> Plasmogamy -> Karyogamy
D. Karyogamy -> Plasmogamy -> Meiosis
Correct Answer : B.
The sexual cycle in fungi involves the following three steps : plasmogamy, karyogamy and meiosis (i) Fusion of protoplasm between two motile or non-motile gametes called plasmogamy. (ii) Fusion of two nuclei called karyogamy. (iii) Meiosis in zygote resulting in haploid spores.
