Answer:

Pili have different functions depending on their type.

Explanation:

Sex pili allow the transfer of DNA, Type VI pili generate motile forces and general pili are responsible for virulence in bacteria as they enhance bacteria's ability to bind to body tissues, which then increases replication rates and ability to interact with the host organism.
