The ways by which a cell avoids surface limitations to diffusion does not include:  a. Having a nucleus b. A flattened shape c. Being long and thin d. Having specialized structures for labor within the cell memebrane e. Having a vacuole filled with water
The most prominent organelle in most eukaryotic cells is the:  a. Endoplasmic reticulum b. Nucleus c. Ribosome d. Nucleolus e. Cell membrane
The function of the nucleolus is:  a. Protein synthesis b. Photosynthesis c. Transport of material into and out of the nucleus d. Assembly of components of ribosomes e. Assembly of mRNA
A discreet package of DNA and associated proteins in eukaryotes is a:  a. Chromosome b. Nucleus c. Ribosome d. Golgi body e. Centriole

Nuclear pores apparently permit the passage of onlya. chromosomes outwardb. glucose molecules outwardc. assembled DNA molecules outwardd. proteins inward and outward, but RNA only outward 
Based on the structure of the DNA backbone you would predict the surface of histones to be:  a. Negatively charged b. Positively charged c. Neutral d. Hydrophobic e. Hydrophilic
A cell would pack its DNA as chromatin in preparation for:  a. Replication b. Transcription c. Translation d. Splicing e. Mitosis
