[2012]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Cell: The Unit of Life - 2 - Question 13

Cell membrane of prokaryotes is structurally similar to that of eukaryotes. So, it does not differ in E. coli and Chlamydomonas.
E.coli (bacteria) is a prokaryote while Chlamydomonas (algae) is a eukaryote. Ribosomes of both groups differ being 70S in prokaryotes and 80S in eukaryotes. Prokaryotic chromosomes lack histone protein unlike eukaryotic ones. Cell wall organization also differs as bacterial cell wall is rich in muramic acid while algal cell wall is cellulosic. It is the cell membrane which has similar organization in both the groups.

Ribosome are small naked (non membrane bound) particles made of r-RNA and proteins. Ribosomes are also seen in the organelles like mitochondria and chloroplasts. They are the cell’s protein factories and are found on RER and scattered in the cytoplasm as polyribosomes. Ribosomes are the sites at which information carried in the genetic code is converted into protein molecules.

[2012M]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Cell: The Unit of Life - 2 - Question 18

Centrioles serve as basal bodies for cilia and flagella. They are concerned with spindle formation during cell division. Lysosomes are membrane-bound organelles containing many hydrolytic enzymes, which are optimally active at an acid pH (near pH 5). Thylakoids are membrane-bound organelles found within chloroplasts. The thylakoid membrane, forms many flattened, fluid-filled tubules that enclose a single convoluted compartment. These tubules tend to stack on top of each other to forma structure called a granum

[NEET Kar. 2013]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Cell: The Unit of Life - 2 - Question 24

In fig., (A) shows the cell organelle mitochondria. The mitochondria are bounded by two membranes, i.e., outer membrane and inner membrane. Mitochondria are referred as “powerhouse” of the cell as they produce 95% of ATP. This energy is produced during the break down of food molecules which involve glycolysis, oxidative decarboxylation and oxidative phosphorylation (krebs cycle and respiratory chain).
