Rhizopus reproduces asexually by fragmentation.

  1. True
  2. False
Correct Answer: Option(b)
Solution: Rhizopus is a genus of saprophytic fungi on plants and specialized parasites on animals. They reproduce by either vegetative or asexual and sexual reproduction. In asexual reproduction, sporangiophores are produced inside a spherical structure, the sporangium. Hence it reproduces by spore formation and not by fragmentation
Thus, the correct answer is option B.
