Answers (1)



The process of obtaining food by amoeba is called phagocytosis. Various steps of involved phagocytosis in Amoeba are as follows:

  1. Ingestion: Food ingests particle by forming temporary finger like structures called pseudopodia. Food is engulfed by forming vacuole around it.
  2. Digestion: Food particles are broken by digestive enzymes inside the food vacuole.
  3. Absorption: Digested food gets diffused into cytoplasm and the food vacuole disappears after digestion.
  4. Egestion: Removal of undigested food from amoeba.
