Give reason:

b. Protists have appendages like cilia and flagella

  1. Tapeworms are parasites and their body walls absorb the digested food from the host animal in which they live. So, they do not need a digestive tract.
  2. Protists have flagella, cilia which are all the forms of appendages. They are used for locomotion and, in the case of pseudopodia, for engulfing food (endocytosis).
