Some hyperthermophilic organisms that grow in highly acidic habitats belong to the two groups

  1. eubacteria and archaea
  2. cyanobacteria and diatoms
  3. protists and mosses
  4. liverworts and yeasts
Correct Answer: Option(a)
Solution: Thermophiles live in very hot places, with Temperature ranging from . Many thermophiles (some eubacteria and archaebacteria) are autotrophs and have metabolisms based on sulphur. Some thermophilic archaebacteria form the basis of food webs around deep-sea thermal vents, where they must withstand extreme temperature and pressures. Archaebacteria can grow in highly acideic (pH = 0.7) and very basic (pH = 11) environments.
