Multiple Choice Questions on the Functions of Cell Organelles

Updated on September 15, 2015

MCQs on Cell Organelles

This hub contains few multiple choice questions on cell organelles. The students are requested to read the text book at least once before taking the test. If you read your text book once more after taking the test, you will be thorough with the topic and prepared for examination.

Good luck

      You can use as many capsule as you like. If you go back on my personality test hub, I use the quiz capsule and add 19 questions for one of the Personality test quiz. Each question will have its own set of answer. So you enter each question and the answer when prompted.

      Hi greatstuff,

      Thanks for the comment.

      How many quiz capsules can we use in a hub? I had a problem when I tried to publish only multiple choice questions without any other text and used multiple quiz capsules, it was rated as substandard.

      So I went back to this mode.

      if you have any idea, please let me know.
