    The false statement is e. It is found only in gram-negative bacteria.

    Explanation:

    Drug resistance is a condition that is usually developed in bacteria because of the wrong use of medicines. This condition can cause a mutation and can be transferred with horizontal gene exchange, that does not require breed and it can happen between two grown bacteria. As it happens in all species of bacteria, therefore it's not only found in gram-negatives.
