Acellular slime molds have many nuclei, but which structure do they lack? (Someone answered with cell walls and I already know that, but the answer needs to be one of these)

 

A) Chromosomes

B) Spores

C) Separate cells

D) Cilia

Well....if they do not have cell WALLs   they do not have separate cells....

I like EPs logic.

 

I just watched a video on them

they definitely have Chromosomes and Spores.  I don't know about Cilia.

Cilia are for moving cells around.....or for stationary cells , moving gunk over the surface....think about all of the phlegm you cough up during a cold.....cilia on the cells in your trachea move that gunk up and out.....until you cough and taste salt in your mouth !    cheeky

 

If you are a smoker you damage those cilia and stuff collects in your lungs.....you have to hack and sputter and cough to get things up...yum.

Not sure I am convinced on all that.  But yes I think cilia are for moving.  So I would have put the same answer as you.
