In the 1800s two scientists, Theodor Schwann and Matthias Schleiden, studied different types of organisms. After many years of studying a great variety of organisms, they drew similar but independent conclusions about their observations. Schwann studied animals and concluded that all animals are made of cells. Schleiden studied plants and concluded that all plants are made of cells. What statement was developed most directly from these conclusions and is part of the modern cell theory?
A. The functions of living things occur in cells.
B. Cells exist only in multicellular organisms.
C. Living things are composed of cells.
D. Cells contain hereditary information

Plants use energy from sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide to produce sugar. Which structure is found only in plant cells and helps plants capture energy from sunlight?
D. Cell membrane
The human body is composed of organ systems. Which list represents a system organized from least to most complex?
A. Heart --> cardiac muscle --> muscle tissue --> muscle cell
B. Lung tissue --> trachea --> nostrils --> circulatory system
C. Muscle cell --> muscle tissue --> biceps muscle --> muscular system
D. Integumentary system --> skin cell --> hair --> sweat glands

Which cellular process takes place in the ribosomes that are bound to the endoplasmic reticulum?
A. The breakdown of waste material
B. The conversion of radiant energy to glucose
C. The synthesis of new proteins

What is TRUE about the inside of an animal cell?
A. The inside of an animal cell is completely solid.
B. The inside of an animal cell is completely filled with air.
C. The inside of an animal cell is completely filled with liquid water.
D. The inside of an animal cell contains liquid water and molecular structures that provide organization and shape.
What is TRUE about the size and shape of cells?
A. All cells are the same size and shape.
B. All cells are the same size, but not all cells are the same shape.
C. All cells are the same shape, but not all cells are the same size.
D. Different cells can have both different sizes and different shapes.
What would a biologist see if she examined a small piece of a leaf from a plant and a small piece of a root from the same plant through a microscope?
A. Both the leaf and the root would be made up of cells.
B. The leaf would be made up of cells, but the root would not be made up of cells.
C. The root would be made up of cells, but the leaf would not be made up of cells.
D. Neither the root nor the leaf would be made up of cells because plants are not made up of cells.
