Do you mean what else they contain besides starch?

Well, starch is the main thing they deposit. but as we know vaculoes have a low-very low ph so i bet there are some H+ ions in that vacuole. Otherwise no idea. by the way what's it with all these potato questions? Am i the only one who noticed them?
Ouh, another thing, why are you calling me "sir"? Am i am only 17 and we are all friends here, aren't we?

Is starch found in the chloroplasts? What about the cytoplasm?

Starch is deposited in some plastids, but not chloroplasts. becuase, as we know chloroplasts are only one type of plastids. The ones that have the function of depositing starch are called amiloplasts.
but you will also find it in chloroplasts as it is produced there

I've got my Bio O levels tomorrow - ive got some questions if any one is awake.
identify how the structures (cell wall & chloroplast) observered in these cells relates to the function of the cell :) :) :) :)

You can't be serious....what other function does a chloroplast have?
