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

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

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

    C) Cell division would be faster than binary fission.

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

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