Viruses that infect bacteria, multiply and cause their lysis, are called

Correct! Wrong!

The lytic cycle results in the destruction of the infected bacteria cell and lysis of its membrane. During infection, a phage attaches and inserts its genetic material into a bacterium. After that, if the phages take over the machinery of the bacterial cell to make phage components, lyse the bacterial cell and release new phage particles, the phage is called Lytic phages or virulent phage and the cycle of viral multiplication is called Lytic cycle.
