Answers (1)


Option 2  is correct because the Golgi apparatus is the factory in which proteins that come from ER  undergo further processing. The proteins are then sorted for transportation to their final destination such as lysosomes, plasma membranes etc. Therefore, the Golgi apparatus is known as the sorting ‘center’ of the cell.

Explanation for the incorrect options :

Option 1 is incorrect because lysosomes are called the ‘suicidal bag’ of the cell because it is able to destroy its own cells with the help of hydrolytic enzymes.

Option 3  is incorrect because the smooth endoplasmic reticulum (SER) does not participate in protein synthesis or in any of the functions related to proteins. It helps in synthesizing lipids, carbohydrates, and steroids.

Option 4 is incorrect because plastids help to manufacture and store the food that is formed by the process of photosynthesis in plant cells
