Cell Quizzes & Trivia

A quiz about the organelles in animal cells. This quiz is on a seventh grade level.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The genetic material for the cell; it is the cell’s command center, directing all of the cell’s activities.

    Explanation
    The nucleus is the correct answer because it is the organelle in a cell that contains the genetic material, such as DNA. It acts as the command center for the cell, controlling and directing all of the cell's activities. The nucleus is responsible for regulating gene expression, cell division, and the production of various proteins necessary for cell function.

     provide energy for the cell; they use oxygen to release energy from food taken in by the cell

    Explanation
    Mitochondria are responsible for providing energy for the cell. They do this by using oxygen to release energy from the food taken in by the cell. This process is known as cellular respiration. Mitochondria are often referred to as the "powerhouses" of the cell because they generate most of the cell's energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Without mitochondria, cells would not be able to produce the energy required for their survival and functioning.

  • 3. 

    A system of winding membranes that packages and transports materials; it also manufactures parts of the cell membrane.

    Explanation
    The endoplasmic reticulum is a system of winding membranes that packages and transports materials within the cell. It is also responsible for manufacturing parts of the cell membrane.

  • 4. 

    Are found in the cytoplasm and on the endoplasmic reticulum. ________ build proteins by connecting amino acids into long chains.

    Explanation
    Ribosomes are small structures found in the cytoplasm and on the endoplasmic reticulum. They are responsible for protein synthesis by connecting amino acids into long chains.

  • 5. 

    Takes simple materials, made in the endoplasmic reticulum, and processes them into more complex materials. Once the ______ has processed these materials, they are either stored or sent out of the cell.

    Explanation
    The Golgi apparatus is responsible for taking simple materials, which are made in the endoplasmic reticulum, and processing them into more complex materials. Once the Golgi apparatus has processed these materials, they are either stored within the cell or sent out of the cell.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Small packages that store and transport materials. Some ______ are formed when parts of the endoplasmic reticulum break off; these ______ carry materials to the Golgi apparatus. Other ______ are formed when parts of the Golgi apparatus break off; these ________ help to transport materials out of the cell.

    Explanation
    Vesicles are small packages that store and transport materials within the cell. Some vesicles are formed when parts of the endoplasmic reticulum break off, and these vesicles carry materials to the Golgi apparatus. Other vesicles are formed when parts of the Golgi apparatus break off, and these vesicles help to transport materials out of the cell.

  • 7. 

     a type of vesicle made by the Golgi apparatus. _____ contain chemicals that break down materials such as food and old cell parts.

    Explanation
    Lysosomes are a type of vesicle made by the Golgi apparatus. They contain chemicals that break down materials such as food and old cell parts.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

     a protective covering that separates the inside of a cell from its environment. Any material coming into or out of the cell must pass through this ______

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Cell Membrane, membrane". The cell membrane is a protective covering that separates the inside of a cell from its environment. It acts as a barrier and regulates the passage of materials in and out of the cell. Any material entering or leaving the cell must pass through this membrane.
