Answer :

Fission takes place in single celled organisms. Under certain conditions, the nucleus will divide a number of times inside the cell itself, producing many nuclei. Once that happens, each of the nuclei that are formed gets enclosed by cytoplasm. This results in separate and individual units. Newly born cells come out of the parent cell after breaking the wall and start living as a new organism. They remain in this cyst like structure till favorable conditions arrive. After arrival of favorable conditions, the cyst breaks to release large number of off-springs.


This is a common form of asexual reproduction in some of the certain acellular organisms.

Examples of organism that reproduce through this method are Plasmodium, paramecium and amoeba etc.
