Expert Answer:

Animals are eukaryotes, i.e., they have a complex cellular structure with membrane-bound nuclei and organelles. Their DNA is linear and organized into chromosomes.

Animals cannot prepare their own food. They depend on plants and other organisms for their food requirements. They show heterotrophic mode of nutrition.

However, animal cells do not have a cell wall. Presence of cell wall is observed only in plant cells.

That is why, animals are eukaryotes with cell walls, showing heterotrophic mode of nutrition is a false statement.
