Science help plz

1. In an experiment, you remove the nucleus from an amoeba. Predict what will happen to the amoeba and explain why.

plz help


What does the nucleus do? Those functions would be absent.

Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "amoeba nucleus" to get these possible sources:
