But each curve is made up of the lag phase, exponential phase(log) stationary phase and death phase(4 phases).

I know each curve has the lag phase, exponential phase, stationary phase, and decline phase(4 phases)

Every normal curve should have 4 distinct phases. From my own opinion I think option D shouldn't be the answer since its a characteristic of a growth curve.

I feel the environment mustn't be stable. What about option A?

I feel the environment mustn't be stable. What about option A?

Curve has 4 phases. That's correct answer is B.

Growth will occur in stable environment.

Growth will occur in stable environment.

The option B is correct because from what I know the logarithm number does not indicated on the growth curve, but the growth curve is related to logarithmic curve as it grow.

I think the answer is A. Because D can't be the answer as a curve as 4 phase lag log stationary and death.

So I think the answer is A.

So I think the answer is A.

The answer must be A.

Please, Someone post the correct answer.

Ravinder said:

All above given options are the characteristics of growth curve.

Isiaq said:

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.
