    Could anyone help answer my question

    Each of the following sentences has at least one mistake in it. Rewrite each one, correcting the mistakes.

    A- The Vacuole contains a substance called Cytoplasm.
    B- Animal cells have a cell wall, a Nuclesus and Cytoplasm.
    C- Chloroform is green substance found in chloroplasts.
    D- A cell is held together by a cell surface counterpane.
    E- The cell wall is used for storage.
    F- The Cytoplasm controls the cell.

    I've already read up on many sites on the subject but still have no clue what to write down with some help I would be very grateful

    Maybe if you tell us what you think is the answer to each first.

    Edit: I have a hard time imagining you having a problem with most of these if you had even tried looking up a cell on wikipedia.

    Attempted guilt tripping's not a good idea.

    I agree with i_feel_tiredsleepy on this one. You don't even need to research a lot to even answer these questions. A simple search on Google would help you finish your homework if you understood your topic.

    Ironically there are more than one mistake in most options.

    Some of them due to simplification of reality.

    Take for instance this one:

    F- The Cytoplasm controls the cell.


    I suspect that they want you to substitute cytoplasm for nucleus, because an idiot would think so black and white that a cell is under control of the nucleus.

    In real life this isn't always clear cut.

    The early development of Drosophila occurs in a syncytium. There are no cells. Just lots of nuclei in a sack.

    There are no cells to control. Error one in the sentence.

    Then lots of maternal messenger were put into the egg. These control the early development. In this sense the cytoplasm does control the cell, except that it is one big sack of cytoplasm filled with nuclei.

    Ok, that is exceptional you might say (it isn't).

    Let's just take an ordinary cell in the human body. It surely is under the control of the nucleus?

    Red blood cells do not have nuclei in their later stage of development.

    Error.

    And cells receive an awful lot of instructions from environmental cues, be it cell-cell contact, hormones, signaling molecules etc.

    The nucleus doesn't control the cell at all in this respect. The environment of the cell does.

    And these people teach the children.

    And these kids let other people do their homework.

    Maybe they can sense it is a pointless exercise.

    You need to teach children lies, so they can learn to recognise them later. A child who does not learn the lies at school is more likely to fall victim to a cult, for instance.

    Sounds like cultish dogma to me. Do you have any links that support your statement turtle?

    Nope, just speculating. I wouldn't be surprised if school dropouts have a higher rate of joining cults though.

    I suppose being dumb would aid your gullibility. And the you die!

    Well, I speculate that "dumbness," which I understand to mean "lack of general intelligence," is not the foremost influence in the act of dropping out, but poverty and a lack of social skills are.

    Also: If you turn your back on poverty stricken youth, and then alienate them more so by summing their lack of social success as being "dumb," then you are not only welcoming violence into your "smart?" society, but breeding it.

    If anyone wants to argue this in worthy context, please ask IS to make us a Formal Debate forum, thank you

    No, it wasn't a serious suggestions on my part, just idle speculation.
