Dear Student

Amoeba obtains food using temporary finger-like extensions on the cell surface which fuse over the food particle forming a food-vacuole. Complex substances are broken down into simpler ones inside the food vacuole which then diffuse into the cytoplasm. The remaining undigested material is moved to the surface of the cell and thrown out resulting in excretion.

Thanks
