## anonymous one year ago What is the significant role of spore formation in the reproductive cycle of this bacterium? Helps bacteria multiply quickly and grow in colonies Helps bacteria survive extreme conditions and later develop into fully functional bacterial cells Helps bacteria develop resistance to antibiotics

I hate this question. Bacteria endospores play no role in the reproductive cycle. I deleted and edited my first comment. It was identical to the above, with the except of "endospore". In my first post I used "spore" and bacterial endospores are not true spores.
