Ans: (A) Fission
Mitochondrial fission and fusion play critical roles in maintaining functional mitochondria when cells experience metabolic or environmental stresses. Fusion helps mitigate stress by mixing the contents of partially damaged mitochondria as a form of complimentation. Fission is needed to create new mitochondria but also contribute to quality control by enabling the removal of damaged mitochondria and can facilitate apoptosu during high levels of cellular stress.
