Describe the process of respiration in Amoeba. State whether it is anaerobic respiration or aerobic respiration.
Respiration happens in amoeba through simple diffusion of gases. It lives in water which contains dissolved oxygen. The diffusion of gases takes place through its cell membrane. Through its thin cell membrane this oxygen diffuses into the body of amoeba and spreads into the whole body. This oxygen is used for respiration inside the Amoeba cell. The process of respiration produces carbon dioxide which diffuses out again through its thin cell membrane.

It is an aerobic respiration.

A, Band Care three living organisms. The organism A is a unicellullar fungus which can live without air. It is used in the commercial production of an organic compound P from molasses. The organism B is a unicellular animal which lives in water and feeds and moves by using pseudopodia. It breathes through an organelle Q. The organism C is a tiny animal which acts as a carrier of malarial parasite. It breathes and respires through a kind of tiny holes Rand air-tubes Sin its body.
