Correct option is
C

They can be photosynthetic.

  • Fungi are eukaryotic organisms. 
  • Fungi do not make their own food energy via photosynthesis but dine on organic matter like rotting leaves, wood, and other debris, or upon the tissues of living plants and animals. Hence they are either saprophytes or parasites. 
  • Examples of fungi are unicellular creatures that exist individually as the yeasts and multicellular bunches such as molds or mushrooms.
  • Hence, the correct option is C.
