Help me pick 5 Organelles

Postby DCpwner » Tue Jan 09, 2007 8:25 pm

Out of the following choices which 5 organelles are most essential for a cell to function?
Nucleus
Ribosomes
Cell Wall
Mitochondria
Lysosome
Vacuole
Golgi Apparatus
Cytoskeleton
Cytosol
Centrioles
SER
RER
Chloroplast
Nucleolus
Please and thanks. =)

that is stupid. All of the following are absolutely necessary for an eukaryotic cell: Nucleus, ribosomes, lysosome, golgi, cytoskeleton, cytosol, SER, RER, nucleolus. Without these, there can be no cell

stupid Que :lol:
Is your teacher OK?
It is like...."What are the non-essential features of house?"
1.Walls
2.Door
3.Window
4.floor
5.Roof
6.Funiture.......... :lol:

But then also I will answer that...

1.Nucleus......... Includes Nucleolus and centroil factor.

2.Cell wall..........Essential to maintain osmotic pressure.

3.Mitochondria......... Ofcourse; energy House.

4.RER............ Includes ER; Ribosome; part of cytoskeleton.

5.Cytosol......... All other parts are included in this.

So give this answer to your teacher....

He/She will get a Shock :lol:

For a cell, everything is essential. Perhaps your teacher should rather ask what are the most well-known organelles ?

Indeed, two different things. Although my teacher is firmly convinced they are the same. But I don't belive him - he doesn't know that much.......
