Cells consist of many organelles,
Question:

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

Solution:

The cell organelles like mitochondria, Golgi complex, ribosomes, nucleus, etc., have specific functions and carry out specific functions in a cell but

they cannot be called as the structural and functional units of living organisms.

This is because they can function only when present inside a living cell. They cannot act as independent units. The cei, on the contrary has

independent existence. It is the smallest, structural and functional unit of life.
