Structure and function are correlatable

Question:

Structure and function are correlatable in living organisms. Can you justify this by taking the plasma membrane as an example?

Solution:

It is made up of proteins, carbohydrates and lipids. The lipids arranged with their hydrophilic polar head directed outwards and non-polar hydrophobic tails directed inwards providing fluidity to the membrane. This provides the cell membrane with its selective permeability.
