A Biology Questions On Cell Transport

Biology questions on cell transport. Material has been able to move in and out of the cell through the cell membrane, and this movement can take place in two ways, which are dependent on whether there is the energy needed or not. How about you take the quiz below and get to see just how much information you stand to learn on the process of cell transportation.
