    For a newly evolving protist, what would be the advantage of using eukaryote-like cell division rather than binary fission? 

    A) Binary fission would not allow for the formation of new organisms. 

    B) Cell division would allow for the orderly and efficient segregation of multiple linear chromosomes. 

    C) Cell division would be faster than binary fission. 

    D) Cell division allows for lower rates of error per chromosome replication. 

    E) Binary fission would not allow the organism to have complex cells. 



    B) Cell division would allow for the orderly and efficient segregation of multiple linear chromosomes.
