Which of the following does not provide evidence for endosymbiotic theory?

Both mitochondria and chloroplasts contain their own ribosome.

Mitochondria and chloroplasts control their own reproduction.

Both mitochondria and chloroplasts contain their own genetic material.

Mitochondria and chloroplasts reproduce without the use of binary fission.

2 Answer

  • Answer: The correct answer is -

    Mitochondria and chloroplasts reproduce without the use of binary fission.

    Endosymbiotic theroy is a theory of evolution that describes the origin of eukaryotes from prokaryotic cells (bacterial cells).

    According to this theory, chloroplast and mitochondria ( that are energy producing cells of eukaryotes) are thought to exist as bacterial cells in a symbiotic association with large cells.

    In other words, they are considered to be originated from bacteria living in the larger cells. This gives a significant evidence of origin of eukaryotes.

    Thus, last statement does not provide evidence for endosymbiotic theory.

  • We have that for the Question "Which of the following does not provide evidence for endosymbiotic theory?" it can be said that

    • "Mitochondria and chloroplasts reproduce without the use of binary fission" not provide evidence for endosymbiotic theory

    Option D

    From the question we are told

    Which of the following does not provide evidence for endosymbiotic theory?

    Endosymbiotic theory

    Stayes that Generally Eukaryotic cells may additionally have developed when more than one cells joined collectively into one. They started out to stay in what we name symbiotic relationships

    Therefore

    • "Mitochondria and chloroplasts reproduce without the use of binary fission" not provide evidence for endosymbiotic theory

    Option D
