      Sorry, but most plants are not single celled.

      Plantea is a Kingdom of the Domain Eukarya I think and Eukarya is the only Domain that has a nucleus and Archaea and Bacteria domains have a “nuclear region” not a defined nucleus. I believe there are some protists that can photosynthesize. Are there no plants that are one-celled?

      I’d say the awnser is e:Eukarya, as it is a domaine. Plantae is a kingdom. (and also because plants are multicellulare. there are many photosynthetic protists though, like diatoms and dinoflagellates.)

      As it had been said the corrct answer is e.eukarya. Why?
      Well, first of all there are no single-celled plants, plus Plantae is a kingdom, not a domain(same with protista). Archea is excluded because it can not do photosynthesis. Bacteria is excluded because they do not have a nucleus. Eukarya is the domain where you will find unicellular algae and Euglena viridis than comply with all the conditions..

      PS: this is a midterm question? What year are you? It seems very easy..
