Answer: A

Explanation: M13 is a lysogenic phage that follows a different infection cycle when M13 infects a bacterium, new phage particles are assembled and released continually from the cell. There is no integration of phage DNA into the bacterial chromosome and lysis of the cell also never occurs.
