Trivia Quiz: What Do You Know About Prokaryotic And Eukaryotic Cells? - Quiz

I have designed a quiz to test about Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic cells. Prokaryotes are organisms made up of cells that lack a cell nucleus while Eukaryotes are organisms made up of cells that possess a membrane-bound nucleus that holds genetic material. The main difference between the two is that one has a cell nucleus while the other one does not. Take our quiz and test your knowledge on these two cells now!


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What kingdoms are made up of prokaryotic cells?

    • A.

      Bacteria & Archea

    • B.

      Protists & Plants

    • C.

      Bacteria & Fungi

    • D.

      Animals & Plants

    • E.

      Archea & Plants

    Correct Answer
    A. Bacteria & Archea
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Bacteria & Archea. Prokaryotic cells are characterized by the absence of a nucleus and membrane-bound organelles. Bacteria and Archea are both examples of prokaryotic organisms. Bacteria are single-celled microorganisms that can be found in various environments, while Archea are also single-celled microorganisms that are known to thrive in extreme environments such as hot springs and deep-sea vents. Both Bacteria and Archea belong to the kingdom Prokaryotae, which is made up of organisms with prokaryotic cells.

    How many times larger is a eukaryotic cell than a prokaryotic cell?

    • A.

      5 times

    • B.

      12 times

    • C.

      10 times

    • D.

      2 times

    • E.

      30 times

    Correct Answer
    C. 10 times
    Explanation
    Eukaryotic cells are generally larger and more complex than prokaryotic cells. They contain a nucleus and membrane-bound organelles, while prokaryotic cells do not. The answer of 10 times larger suggests that eukaryotic cells are 10 times bigger in size compared to prokaryotic cells. This highlights the significant difference in size and complexity between these two types of cells.

    Which type of cell appeared first on earth?

    • A.

      Prokaryotic cells

    • B.

      Eukaryotic cells

    Correct Answer
    A. Prokaryotic cells
    Explanation
    Prokaryotic cells appeared first on Earth. These cells are simpler and lack a nucleus and other membrane-bound organelles. They are believed to have originated around 3.5 billion years ago. Eukaryotic cells, on the other hand, are more complex and contain a nucleus and other membrane-bound organelles. They evolved from prokaryotic cells through a process called endosymbiosis. Therefore, prokaryotic cells were the first type of cell to emerge and lay the foundation for the development of more complex life forms.

    Prokaryotic cells do not have a nucleus. What do they have in its place?

    • A.

      Nucleolus

    • B.

      Nucleoid region

    • C.

      Deoxyribonucleic acid

    • D.

      Chromatin

    • E.

      Nuclear envelope

    Correct Answer
    B. Nucleoid region
    Explanation
    Prokaryotic cells do not have a true nucleus like eukaryotic cells do. Instead, they have a region called the nucleoid region where their DNA is located. This region is not enclosed by a membrane, unlike the nucleus of eukaryotic cells. The nucleoid region contains the genetic material of the prokaryotic cell, which is usually in the form of a single, circular DNA molecule. Therefore, the correct answer is nucleoid region.

    Which type of cell has membrane bound organelles?

    • A.

      Prokaryotic cells

    • B.

      Plant cells

    • C.

      Animal cells

    • D.

      Bacteria cells

    • E.

      Eukaryotic cells

    Correct Answer
    E. Eukaryotic cells
    Explanation
    Eukaryotic cells have membrane-bound organelles, such as the nucleus, mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum, and Golgi apparatus. These organelles are surrounded by a membrane that separates their internal environment from the rest of the cell. This allows for compartmentalization and specialization of different cellular processes within the eukaryotic cell. In contrast, prokaryotic cells, such as bacteria cells, lack membrane-bound organelles and their genetic material is not enclosed within a nucleus.
