    Explanation
    The plural form of "fungus" is "fungi." This is because "fungi" is the correct pluralization according to the rules of English grammar. The word "fungusses" is not a valid plural form, and "funguss" and "fungises" are not proper English words. Therefore, "fungi" is the only correct option for the plural form of "fungus."

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "data" because "datum" is a singular noun derived from Latin, and its plural form is "data" in English. The word "datas" is not a valid plural form, "datums" is the plural of "datum" in Latin but not commonly used in English, and "datumses" is not a recognized word. Therefore, "data" is the correct plural form of "datum".

    The correct answer is "cacti" because "cactus" is a noun of Latin origin that follows the pattern of forming its plural by changing the "-us" ending to "-i". This is a common rule for many Latin words that have been adopted into English. Therefore, "cacti" is the correct plural form of "cactus".
