. Cells consist of many organelles, yet we do not call any of these organelles as a structural and functional unit of living organisms. Explain


Best Answer

Answer: Cell organelles like mitochondria, ribosomes, nucleus, etc, have specific functions and do specific functions, however, they can not be referred to the functional unit of the cell. This is because they will perform only specific functions within a living cell. They can not act as units. The nuclei, on the contrary, has an independent existence.  it’s the littlest, structural and useful unit of life.
