A fun way to the audiences knowledge about organelles, and their functions.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Allow me to "break things down"They call me "Janitor"Without me, a cell would digest itself(No, I dont have an ego problem, I'm that important) What organelle am I?

    • A. 

      The Vacuole

    • B. 

      Golgi Appartus

    • C. 

      Centriole

    • D. 

      Lysosome

    Correct Answer
    D. Lysosome
    Explanation
    The given passage mentions that without the presence of this organelle, a cell would digest itself. This suggests that the organelle being referred to is responsible for breaking down and digesting cellular waste and debris. The organelle that fits this description is the lysosome. Lysosomes contain digestive enzymes that break down various molecules and cellular components, playing a crucial role in maintaining cellular homeostasis.

    I am important to all the alcoholics in the world, as I break down toxic H2O2 into H2O + O2 Which is why I am mostly found in Liver and Kidney CellsWhat am I?

    • A. 

      Centrioles

    • B. 

      Nucleolus

    • C. 

      Peroxisomes

    • D. 

      Microfilaments/Microtubules

    Correct Answer
    C. Peroxisomes
    Explanation
    Peroxisomes are small organelles found in liver and kidney cells that play a crucial role in breaking down toxic substances, including hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), into harmless water (H2O) and oxygen (O2). This detoxification process is especially important for alcoholics, as their bodies produce higher levels of H2O2. Therefore, peroxisomes are essential for the well-being of alcoholics and are predominantly found in liver and kidney cells.

    I am named after my discoverer, Camillo Golgi, but my friends call me "UPS" because I process, package, deliver information.So who I am?

    • A. 

      Golgi Apparatus

    • B. 

      Nucleus

    • C. 

      Ribosome

    • D. 

      Cell Membrane

    Correct Answer
    A. Golgi Apparatus
    Explanation
    The Golgi Apparatus is named after its discoverer, Camillo Golgi. It is responsible for processing, packaging, and delivering information within the cell, hence the nickname "UPS". The Golgi Apparatus receives proteins and lipids from the endoplasmic reticulum, modifies them, and packages them into vesicles for transport to their final destinations within the cell or for secretion outside the cell. It plays a crucial role in intracellular transport and communication. Therefore, the Golgi Apparatus is the correct answer.

    You can call me a Hoarder, I like store things like water & waste products. I am small in animal cells but make up almost 90% of plant cells. What am I?

    • A. 

      Cilia

    • B. 

      Chloroplast

    • C. 

      Mitochondria

    • D. 

      E.R.

    • E. 

      Vacuole

    Correct Answer
    E. Vacuole
    Explanation
    Vacuoles are storage compartments found in cells that store various substances like water, waste products, and nutrients. They are more prominent in plant cells, making up almost 90% of the cell volume, compared to animal cells where they are smaller. The description given in the question matches the characteristics of a vacuole, making it the correct answer.

    In the cell, Im known as "Powerhouse"They did not just give me that knick-name, I'm full of ATP energy that drives the cellIf you ever need me, just check your muscles

    • A. 

      Mitochondria

    • B. 

      Cytoplasm

    • C. 

      Ribosome

    • D. 

      Nucleolus

    Correct Answer
    A. Mitochondria
    Explanation
    Mitochondria are known as the "Powerhouse" of the cell because they are responsible for producing ATP energy, which is the main source of energy for the cell. They have their own DNA and are capable of carrying out aerobic respiration to generate ATP. Additionally, muscles require a large amount of energy to function, so if you ever need to find where this energy is coming from, you should check the mitochondria.
