S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. Schilden & Schwan established cell theory in 1838-39.

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. Cell division in prokaryotic cell takes place by the process of fission or budding.

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. Mitochondria synthesize the energy rich compound ATP. Hence, it is also known as the powerhouse of the cell.

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. Vacuoles are larger in size in plant cell as compared to animal cell.

S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. Humans have 23 pair of chromosomes in which 22 pair are autosomes and one pair is sex chromosome.

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. Vacuole main function is to maintain constant osmotic pressure in the fluids of organisms by controlling water and salt concentrations, the process called osmoregulation.

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. Chromoplast provides colour to various parts of plants- fruits, flower, etc.

S8. Ans.(d)
Sol. Division of cytoplasm is called cytokinesis.

S9. Ans.(b)

S10. Ans.(a)
Sol. Nucleus controls all the activity of cells. Hence, it is also called as control room of the cell.
