    Which of the following is an example of alternation of generations?

    Question Image

    A haploid mushroom produces gametes by mitosis, and thegametes undergo fertilization, which is immediately followed by meiosis.

    A diploid cell divides by mitosis to produce two diploiddaughter cells, which then fuse to produce a tetraploid cell.

    A diploid plant (sporophyte) produces, by meiosis, aspore that gives rise to a multicellular, haploid pollen grain (gametophyte).
