see again the sentence that you've written...smallest unit of LIFE. so, if you said that chromosome is even smaller than cell, can it live by its own??
Q: Why are chemists great for solving problems?

Cells need all of the subcellular orgalles TO LIVE!! (mitochondria, DNA, ribosomes, lysosomes, ER, cell membrane)....
However 99.99% of cells cant live with out it's organelles.. that's why a cell is considered the smallest unit of life (because it is composed of many organells in a small unit)
