Not all organisms undergo 4 stages in the growth curve. Right?

Some endospore-forming bacteria have a survival phase. It is the 5th phase of the growth curve.

C is the correct answer. All other options are true for growth curve. It is ploted with log Vs times and not with graph number Vs time. Thanks.

I also agree All the given option is correct.

Answer can't be D. I think all the options are actually characteristic of a growth curve.

Thank you all.

I think the answer is B. Because growth curve with the solid line but growth curve for the expontential phase is plotted logarithmically.

The option D is correct because the growth curve contains 5 phases; -lag, -log (expl), -stationary, -death and -prolonged decline phase. It is plotted with log (number) vs time.
