Who you


1. vacuoles are certain clear spaces in the cytoplasm .They are filled with water an various substances in solution . They contains cell sap .Function-  give turgity to cells and stores water.
2. During cell division the chromatin fibre becomes thick and ribbon like. these fibres are called chromosomes . Function- it carry the genetic characters from the parents to offsprings.
3. a.Unicellular - made up of only single cell. e.g, yeast
Multicellular- made of millions and billions of cells.e.g, humans

b.Prokaryotic- no well defined nucleus and small ribosomes.
Eukaryotic- well defined nucleus and large ribosomes .  

c.Plant cell- definite cell wall, centrosomes absent, contains plastid .
Animal cell- no cell wall,centrosome present , plastids absent.

4. cell is the basic part because , it is the smallest part of body and capable of independent existence and of performing the essential functions of life.

This Is a Certified Answer

Certified answers contain reliable, trustworthy information vouched for by a hand-picked team of experts. Brainly has millions of high quality answers, all of them carefully moderated by our most trusted community members, but certified answers are the finest of the finest.
1.Vacuoles are clear spaces in cells with water and other substances in solution.
Plant cells have large,prominent  vacuoles , while animal cells have small ,temporary vacuoles ,if at all.It is bound by a covering called tonoplast . It contains cell sap which has ANTHOCYANIN in it.Function:Gives turgidity to the cell and stores food pigments,water and waste products.
2.The chromatin network in the resting stage of the nucleus condenses into fine threads called chromosomes.Function:They are the bearers of genes , the carriers of  hereditary characters.
3.a>Unicellular organisms cannot be seen by the naked eye and are made up of a single cell.Eg-Chlamydomonas.There is only 1 cell which controls all the structural functions.cell division does not take place
Multicellular organisms can be seen by the naked eye and are made up of more than 1 cell.Eg-Human. There are many cells which perform their own functions and cell division takes place ,unlike in unicellular organisms.
Prokaryotic cells do not have a well defined nucleus/nuclear membrane and there are small ribosomes.The nuclear material is scattered in the cytoplasm.
EG-Bacterial Cell
Eukaryotic cells have a well defined nucleus and nuclear membrane and there are big ribosomes.Most of the nuclear material is present within the nucleus.Eg- All plant and animal cells.
c>Plant cells have cell wall , plastids, are comparatively bigger ,dont have centrosomes and centrioles,cytoplasm is pushed towards the periphery ,only a thin lining of cytoplasm.
Animal cells dont have cell wall,dont have plastids , are comparatively smaller,have centrosomes and centrioles,denser cytoplasm is present which fills almost entire cell.
4.Cell is the basic unit of living organisms because:The cell is the basic structural and functional living unit of all living organisms which has independent existence and new cells arise by the division of pre-existing cells.
