    A biologist ground up some plant leaf cells and then centrifuged the mixture to fractionate the organelles. Organelles in one of the heavier fractions could produce ATP in the light, while organelles in the lighter fraction could produce ATP in the dark. The heavier and lighter fractions are most likely to contain, respectively,

    A) mitochondria and chloroplasts.

    B) chloroplasts and peroxisomes.

    C) peroxisomes and chloroplasts.

    D) chloroplasts and mitochondria.

    E) mitochondria and peroxisomes.

    D) chloroplasts and mitochondria.

    This is the correct answer, however you have it in reverse on A. I do not see the importance in the differences.

    B) use the hydrogen to break down hydrogen peroxide 

    C) transfer the harmful substances to the mitochondria 

    D) transfer the hydrogens to oxygen molecules

    B) They are brought into the cell from the environment. 

    C) They are built de novo from cytosol materials. 

    D) They split in two after they are too large. 

    E) The cell synthesizes hydrogen peroxide and encloses it in a membrane.

    Cells can be described as having a cytoskeleton of internal structures that contribute to the shape, organization, and movement of the cell. Which of the following are part of the cytoskeleton? 

    A) the nuclear envelope 

    B) mitochondria 

    C) microfilaments 

    D) lysosomes 

    E) nucleoli 



    A) the nuclear envelope


    (someone had "A" as the previous answer but "C" definitely makes more sense.) I set it back to A because this question is on Course Compass and it shows the correct answer as
    A) the nuclear envelope. Since Course Compass is set up by the book publisher I assume that to be the correct answer.

    Microfilaments are apart of the cytoskeleton which participate in movement. A is incorrect because it's funtion is to encase cromatin/ Chromosomes. C. Is the Best answer.
