    All fungi are heterotrophic, meaning that "autotrophic" is not a characteristic of fungi. Autotrophs are organisms that make their own food, like photosynthetic plants. Heterotrophs are organisms that get food from other sources, like humans.

    Fungi are both unicellular( eg. yeast) and multicellular( think of those mushrooms!)

    @nawar97 Well, the question should be written "Which of the following is NOT a characteristic of any fungus?" On that list the only thing that all fungi have in common is that they are eukaryotes. There are other unicellular fungi besides yeast, fyi. Some species of fungi are able to grow as multicellular individuals, or, if conditions are correct, unicellular yeasts.
