    Proteins are manufactured by the _______.

    Correct Answer
    ribosome
    ribosomes
    Ribosome
    Explanation
    Proteins are manufactured by ribosomes. Ribosomes are small cellular structures responsible for protein synthesis. They are found in all living cells and play a crucial role in translating the genetic information stored in DNA into functional proteins. Ribosomes are composed of RNA and proteins and can be found either freely floating in the cytoplasm or attached to the endoplasmic reticulum. They work by reading the messenger RNA (mRNA) sequence and assembling amino acids in the correct order to form a protein chain. Therefore, the correct answer is ribosome/ribosomes/Ribosome.
