Best answer

Ans : (3) Cell is metabolically active, grows but it does not replicate its DNA.

Explanation :

The G1 phase of interphase includes synthesis of various proteins, duplication of organelles, synthesis of various enzymes etc as a preparation for the synthesis phase and cell division. Therefore, it is metabolically very active but DNA replication does not take place in this phase, it occurs in the S phase of interphase.
