Which best describes the difference between protists that have cilia and those that have flagella? Those that have cilia are animal-like protists, and those that have flagella are plant-like protists. Those that have flagella are animal-like protists, and those that have cilia are plant-like protists. Those that have cilia have hair-like extensions for movement, and those that have flagella have a single hair-like extension for movement. Those that have cilia are heterotrophs, and those that have flagella are autotrophs.

Those that have cilia have hair-like extensions for movement, and those that have flagella have a single hair-like extension for movement. In most organisms, both cilia and flagella play important roles in the cells movement in the form of swimming, which is usually exhibited by sperm cells and other protozoans. Both of these things are flexible membranes that are extensions of the cells.
