Animals don't have plasmids since they can roam around to get nourishment because they are mobile creatures. They can hunt prey or get food from various methods to meet their nutritional needs. Hence assertion is false.

Animal cells do not include plastids, which are exclusively found in plant cells and are responsible for giving plants their green color. Animals do not require such an organ since they rely on outside sources of nourishment and do not need to photosynthesize, which is what it does for plants. The reason is true. Therefore, the correct answer is option 4 which states that the Assertion is true but the Reason is false.
