Type of movement fastest protozoans show is ?
A) undular
B) amoeboid
3) gliding
4) pendular

Dear Student,

Ans. Option 4) pendular movement
The ciliary movement of Protozoa is considered to be the fastest movement of Protozoa. It is also known as the pendular movement of cilia. 

Various modes of locomotion in protozoans are as follows:
1) By pseudopodia: Protozoans such as Amoeba use this kind of locomotion by creating pseudopodia.
2) Ciliary movements: Protozoan such as Paramecium has cilia all over the body which helps the Paramecium to move from one place to another.
‚Äč3) Flagellar movement: Some protozoa have flagella which help them to move.
