The unicellular organism which reproduces by budding is:(a) Spirogyra      (b) Hydra      (c) Planaria      (d) Yeast

Correct Answer: (d) Yeast

Yeast is a unicellular organism that reproduces by budding.

[Extra information for reference only:

Budding is a type of asexual reproduction. During budding, a small bulb-like projection known as the bud develops on the body of the parent organism. The bud continues to grow on the parent until it develops and matures into a miniature adult. After complete maturation, the bud pinches off from the parent's body and attains the ability to develop independently.

Hydra, yeast, and some bacteria like Caulobacter sp. reproduce by budding.]
