Chamber: It is divided into complete chambers.

Function: It is the respiratory organ of the cell.

Food reserve: It does not store any food.



Pigments: It has different pigments

Position: It is only found in the plant cell.

Inner membrane: Folds are not found in the inner membrane.

Chamber: Chambers are not found.

Function: It is mainly an organelle involved in manufacturing food for the cell.
