Correct option is
D

All fungi posses a purely cellulosic cell wall.

  • Fungi are saprotrophs or parasites (heterotrophic i.e., organisms that cannot synthesize organic compounds and depend on available ones).
  • Fungi can derive their nutrition from live or dead organisms.
  • Yeast is a unicellular fungus, while all other fungi are multicellular.
  • The presence of a chitinous cell wall is a characteristic feature of fungi whereas a cellulosic cell wall is found in plants.

Therefore, the correct answer is option D.
