A)True
B)False

Answer Verified Verified
Hint:Prokaryotic and eukaryotic are the types of cells that exist in an organism. Eukaryotic cells are those which contain a nucleus that have genetic material while prokaryotic cells don’t have nucleus. Only the single celled organisms like Bacteria and Archaea are prokaryotes- pro means before and kary means nucleus.

Complete answer:
Bacteria constitute a larger domain of prokaryotic microorganisms as they lack a membrane-bound nucleus .
SALIENT FEATURES OF BACTERIA:
>Bacteria have different types of shape like rod shape, spiral and sphere shaped.
>Cell membrane is made up of phospholipids which work as a barrier to hold essential components like nutrients and proteins within the cell.
>Cell wall is present outside the cell membrane which is made up of peptidoglycan.
>There are two types of cell wall in bacteria which divide the bacteria into two categories: Gram positive and gram negative bacteria.
>The genetic material of bacteria is a single circular bacterial chromosome of DNA which is located in the cytoplasm and known as nucleoid.

Hence the correct answer is False.
