Best answer
Correct option is A)
Plant mushroom get its food from dead and decaying plants. In short, they are saprophytes. Plants are green because they contain chlorophyll, which helps them with photosynthesis, the process of turning sunlight into food. Mushrooms are not green and they contain no chlorophyll. Therefore, they cannot photosynthesize. Mushrooms obtain their food by metabolizing dead or decaying organic matter, such as dead plants on the ground. Tiny filaments called as hyphae absorb the nutrients from the dead matter. Mushrooms are made up of hyphae filaments and a mass of hyphae is called as a mycelium. This is why, you often see mushrooms growing on dead tree stumps.
