Expert Answer:

Amoeba follows holozoic mode of nutrition in which the solid food particles are ingested which are then acted upon by enzymes and digested.

Steps of Nutrition in Amoeba:

  • Amoeba engulfs food by temporary finger-like projections of its body surface called pseudopodia.
  • When a pseudopodium fuses with the food particle, it forms a food vacuole.
  • Complex substances are broken down into simple substances inside the food vacuole. These simple substances are then diffused into the cytoplasm.
  • The remaining unwanted material is taken to the cell surface and is thrown out.
