Quiz For Cells: Especially The Structures Of A Cell

All living things, large or small, plant or animal, are made up of cells. The cells provide structure for the body, take in nutrients from food, convert those nutrients into energy, and carry out specialized functions. Test out what you know about the structure of the cell by taking up the test below.
