Why would you never see ribosomes in a virus?
a. Viruses hijack the ribosomes of host cells in order to create the necessary proteins when reproducing.
b. Viruses do not use ribosomes when making proteins and have adapted a different method to translate proteins.
c. Viruses leave their ribosomes outside of the host cell as they have already synthesized all necessary prior to infection.
d. Viruses do not have any need to create proteins, so ribosomes would be worthless.
