Hello. A given question Ask us about the function of cell membranes. In order to answer the question. We will first understand about Selman breathe and later on we will look at each and every statement and find the correct option. So, now what do you mean by cell membrane? Cell membrane lost its meaning. Cell membrane is the outermost covering of all cells in both plants and animals. However, in case of plants there is an external cell wall president as well which provides them structure, rigidity and rigidity meaning this year out there most governing outermost covering in all cells inboard plants and animals. However, in case of plants, there’s also an ultra presence of external layer known as sela ward. Now let us look about its function. The main function of cell membrane is to separate the interior of all cells from the outside environment and protect the cells from its environment. It is semi permeable in nature. Okay. Function. The main function is to separate the outside which is the surrounding support. The deep inside of the cell. Yeah, it is semi permeable. It is semi permeable which is It allows only certain materials to enter the cell and go out of the cell…
