Choose the incorrect statement from the following with respect to the Golgi complex.

Option: 1

The vesicles of ER  are fused with cis face of the golgi complex.

Option: 2

The trans and cis face of the golgi complex are identical but interconnected.

Option: 3

 It is closely associated with the endoplasmic reticulum.

Option: 4

 The cisternae of the Golgi are arranged concentrically near the nucleus.

Statement present in option 2 is incorrect because the trans and cis faces of the Golgi complex are distinct and have different functions. The cis face is the receiving end, where vesicles from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) fuse and deliver their contents to the Golgi for processing. The trans face is the shipping end, where the processed molecules leave the Golgi complex in vesicles to be transported to their final destinations. Hence, the correct answer is option 2.
