  1. True or False:
    Surface area increases faster than volume as cell size gets larger.
  2. How much bigger are typical eukaryotic cells than prokaryotic cells? 

    A.  10-100X
  3. True or False:
    Eukaryotic cells are more efficient than prokaryotic cells because they have compartments called organelles.
  4. Which of these are tenets of cell theory? 

    A.  a, b, & c
  5. Which are the thickest elements of the cytoskeleton? 

    C.  microfiber
  6. What is/are the main function/s of the cytoskeleton

  7. What is the site of aerobic cellular respiration in cells? 

    D.  mitochondria
  8. True or False:
    Muscle cells contain a lot of mitochondria because they need a lot of energy to function.
