    A bacterium is just a single cell with a tough cell wall that protects it. The different shapes of bacteria enable us to place them in different family groups:

    A. Bacilli with and without flagella
    B. Streptococci
    C. Staphylococci
    D. Diplococci
    E. Spirochete
    F. Club rod
    G. Filamentous
    H. Streptobacilli
