Please post your answers in the comments.


  1. Somatic cells, Gametes, Eykaryotic cells and Prokaryotic cells

  2. The two categories are 1) somatic cells and 2) gametes cells

  3. There are 2 categories of the cell
    somatic cells
    regenerative cells

  4. The 2 categories of cells are somatic cells, which replaces the old, worn out cells in our body, and Gamates, which are reproductive cells.

    Another category of cells are Prokaryote cells, which does not have a cell nucleus and Eukaryote cells, which contain a cell nucleus.

  5. The categories of the cells are prokaryotic cells—organisms that lack a nuclear membrane, and Eukaryotic cells, The major and extremely significant difference between prokaryotes and eukaryotes is that eukaryotes contain a nucleus.

  6. The 2 categories of cells are prokaryotic cells and eukaryotic cells.

    Bacteria is the best known example of prokaryotes cells. These types of cells do not contain a DNA and too lack nuclear membrane and any of the intracellular organelles and structures that are characteristic of eukaryotic cells such as mitochondria, chloroplasts, and the Golgi apparatus, which are taken over by the prokaryotic plasma membrane.

    Eukaryotes include fungi, animals, and plants as well as some unicellular organisms. There is the presence of a nucleus that houses the eukaryotic cell’s DNA.
