  1. Proteins and carbohydrates
  2. Carbohydrates and lipids
  3. Lipids and proteins

9/6: A major difference between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells is that

  1. Prokaryotic cells have a flagellum.
  2. Eukaryotic cells have a nucleus.
  3. Prokaryotic cells have cytoplasm.
  4. Eukaryotic cells have ribosomes.

9/7: The “powerhouse” of the cell is the

  1. Nucleus.
  2. Ribosome.
  3. Chloroplast.
  4. Mitochondria.

9/8: Some viruses attack cells by inserting their own DNA into the host cells’ DNA. Why might it be simpler for these viruses to attack prokaryotic cells than eukaryotic cells?

  1. Prokaryotic cells have less DNA than do eukaryotic cells.
  2. Unlike eukaryotic cells, prokaryotic cells do not have a nucleus.
  3. The cell wall in prokaryotic cells is a less effective barrier.

  1. Cell membrane—protein synthesis
  2. Nucleus—genetic material storage
  3. Vacuole—storage
  4. Chloroplast—energy production

9/19: Which organelle contains enzymes that break down damaged cell parts?

  1. Centriole
  2. Lysosomes
  3. Vacuole

9/21: Which of the following best describes the characteristics of the fluid mosaic model?

  1. Fluid because the phospholipids can move and mosaic because the phospholipids form different shapes.
  2. Fluid because the membrane has water between the phospholipids and mosaic because the phospholipids differ from each other.
  3. Fluid because water can diffuse through the membrane and mosaic because different molecules types can also diffuse through.
  4. Fluid because of the movement of phospholipids and mosaic because of the proteins.
