Living cell was discovered by Leewenhoek. Once Leewenhoek took a drop of pond water, there he put that into a slide he observed some tiny things moving. They were protozoa the living microbes. He named them as animalcules. Hence the discoverer of living cell is Antoine Van Leewenhoek.

First the cells were discovered by Robert Hooke in 1655 under his own made microscope but they were dead. He examined it using a slice of cork and discovered honeycomb structure which he named in Latin as cells meaning a small room. It was Anton van leevsnhook who discovered Living cell using electron microscope in the pond.

Actually the cells which Robert Hooke examined were dead cells of a dead wooden cork. Anton Van Leeuwenhoek discovered living cells. So the correct answer is C.

Leeuwenhoek observed the living cells and Robert Hooke observed the dead cells and so option c is correct

Shreya Mishra answered Jul 22, 2020
The cell walls observed by Hooke gave no indication of the nucleus and other organelles found in most living cells. The first man to witness a live cell under a microscope was Anton van Leeuwenhoek, who in 1674 described the algae Spirogyra. Van Leeuwenhoek probably also saw bacteria.

The correct option is 'c' that is LEEUWENHOEK because roberthooke discovered dead cells in 1665, and saw some hexagonal compartments like honeycomb and name it as a cell in Latin language. Robert brown studied futher about the cell and Purkinji coined the term as protoplasm that's why'c' ROBERT HOOKE is the write answer

A largely self-taught man in science, he is commonly known as "the Father of Microbiology", and one of the first microscopists and microbiologists. Van Leeuwenhoek is best known for his pioneering work in microscopy and for his contributions toward the establishment of microbiology as a scientific discipline.

The living cells were first discovered by Antony Van Leeuwenhoek. He observed living cells and called them 'animalcules'. Some of the small 'animalcules' are now called bacteria. The invention of the microscope supported the study of finer details of a living cell.
So, the correct answer is option C.

Option (C)is correct
it was the year 1665 Robert hooke, a British scientist observed thin slices of Cork under a simple magnifying device which he had made himself. he observed that the Cork resembled the structure of a honey comb consisting of many empty spaces or empty box like structures. he thought it was made up of very small cavities. Robert hooke called these cavities "CELL"

Robert Hooke
The first time the word cell was used to refer to these tiny units of life was in 1665 by a British scientist named Robert Hooke. Hooke was one of the earliest scientists to study living things under a microscope. The microscopes of his day were not very strong, but Hooke was still able to make an important discovery.

Mannat Thukral answered Jun 05, 2020
The discovery made by Robert Hooke is considered to one of the most important discoveries in the field of biology but he is not regarded the one who discovered living cells he discovered dead cells ina cork but antonie von leeuwenhoek was the one who discovered living cells in pond water in 1674.

Cells were discovered by Robert Hooke in 1665. He observed a piece of cork slice with the help of a primitive microscope and observed small compartments which he called cells. Whereas Leeuwenhoek, in 1674, created an improved simple microscope,which was much better than that the compound microscope at the time.

Ranas King answered 4 weeks ago
The most accurate answer is Robert Hooke thought of a basic structure I.e. cell of cork which was dead coz of dead layer outside I.e.epidermis ,,so opt.c observation was of next level so he observed pond water in which the cells were living
