Choices

Choice (4)Response

a.

Prokaryotes

b.

Animal cell

c.

Plant cell

d.

Bacterial cell

Answer

c.

Explanation

  • All animals and plants are made of cells. Animal cells and plant cells features are common, such as a nucleus, cytoplasm, cell membrane, mitochondria, and ribosomes. But plant cell have a cell wall while animal cell does not have cell wall.
  • Plant cells have a cell wall, a large central vacuole, and plastids such as chloroplasts. The cell wall is a rigid layer that is found outside the cell membrane and surrounds the cell, providing structural support and protection. The central vacuole maintains turgor pressure against the cell wall.
  • Prokaryotes do not have well developed nucleus but in this diagram well developed nucleus is shown. Bacterial cells have either flagellum or cilia for movement which is absent in above shown diagram.
  • In this diagram large vacuole, chloroplast, cell wall, plasmodesmata, middle lamella are clearly seen which not characteristics of animal cells are. Therefore the above shown diagram is of plant cell.
