Growth can be measured in various ways. Which of these can be used as parameters to measure growth
A. Increase in cell number
B. Increase in cell size
C. Increase in length and weight
D. All the above
All of the above parameters can be used to measure growth.
Without increase in cell size or cell enlargement, no organism can continue to grow.
Without increase in cell number, the cells would eventually die out and growth will not continue.
Without increase in length and weight, metabolic processes cannot undergo since the cell is increasing in size too.
So, the above parameters all measure growth.
