True or False: In multicellular
organisms, all of the organism’s cells carry out the exact same functions.
This question asks us about
functions of cells in a multicellular organism, such as humans or plants.
As humans, we have many different
types of cells within our body. Let’s look at a few examples. Our nerve cells transmit nerve
impulses. Our red blood cells help carry
oxygen from our lungs to different tissues in our body. And our skin cells protect us from
the outside environment. All of these cells have different
functions and work together to keep us alive.
So, if we look back at the
question, the statement “In multicellular organisms, all of the organism’s cells
carry out the exact same functions” is not correct. Many cells have different
functions, so the statement is false.
