Describe two similarities and two differences between eukaryotic cells and prokaryotic cells. Why do you think eukaryotic cells developed? Describe how eukaryotic cells are similar to a production line.

    This is what I have, but I am not sure I am answering the question correctly.

    These cells are alike because:
    1. They both have plasma membranes.
    2. They both have DNA.
    3. Both carry out basic functions.

    These cells are different because:
    1. Eukaryotic cells have a nucleus, much more organized internally.
    2. Eukaryotic cells have their chromosomes inside nuclei; Prokaryotes do not.
    3. Eukaryotic cells have organelles enclosed in their own membranes.
    4. Prokaryotes have non-membrane-bound organelles.
    5. The internal structure of Prokaryotes is more chaotic.

    Eukaryotic cells may have developed because they had to start carrying out more specialized functions. Eukaryotic cells have the ability to carry on many different functions in the individual organelles at the same time.

    Eukaryotic cells are like a production line because they involve many different specialized functions going on in different places, but all of these functions are integrated to produce the final product as efficiently as possible.

    Sorry I did not post correctly last time.
