  • 8. 
    What is the Chloroplast's job?
    • A. 

      It's their job to make the Nucleus stay "awake."

    • B. 

      They create building blocks for forming proteins.

    • C.

  • 9. 
    What does the ribosome do to help the cell?
    • A. 

      Forms spindle fibers to separate chromosomes during cell division.

    • B. 

      Ribosomes are the sites of protein synthesis, where RNA is translated into protein. When cells need large numbers of proteins, they must first build numerous ribosomes. They also create building blocks for forming proteins.
