A cell is a smallest unit of life an always termed as building blocks. Cells contain cytoplasm enclosed within a membrane. Organisms can be defined as unicellular if it has a single cell or multicellular such as plants and animals. The Unbeatable Quiz on Bio 113 test below widens your understanding on cells and its components. Try it out.
