Answer ( 1 )

  1. Ribosomes are extremely small, rounded bodies. They are composed of ribonucleic acid (RNA) and proteins. They are not bounded by a membrane. So, they are present in both prokaryotic as well as in eukaryotes. But, they are absent in mammalian R.B.Cs.
    Ribosomes are the site of protein synthesis in the cell. They are, therefore also called protein factories.
