[B]. It helps in manufacture of enzymes, and It helps in manufacture of hormones.
[C]. It helps in manufacture of hormones, and It helps in manufacture of starch molecules.
[D]. It helps in manufacture of starch molecules, and It helps in manufacture of protein molecules.
What do understand by Hypertonic solution?

If the medium has a lower concentration of water than the cell, meaning that it is a very concentrated solution, the cell will lose water by osmosis. Such a solution is known as a hypertonic solution.

What is Plasmolysis?

When a living plant cell loses water through osmosis there is shrinkage or contraction of the contents of the cell away from the cell wall. This phenomenon is known as plasmolysis.

Why are Lysosomes known as suicide bags?

During the disturbance in cellular metabolism, for example, when the cell gets damaged, lysosomes may burst and the enzymes digest their own cell. Therefore, lysosomes are also known as the ‘suicide bags’ of a cell.

How does Mitochondria make their own protein?

Mitochondria have their own DNA and ribosomes. Therefore, mitochondria are able to make some of their own proteins.
