(2) Gram +ve bacteria take crystal violet stain

(3) Only Gram –ve bacteria take crystal violet stain

(4) Gram –ve bacteria lose this stain after alcohol

 

 

Audio Explanation:


Please note that the above question is asking which option is incorrect. "Only" keyword in option 3 makes that incorrect statement as both Gram +ve and -ve bacteria take crystal voilet stain. So, option (3) is the answer here.

A non-membrane bound organelle found exclusively in animal cells is:

1. Sphaerosome

2. Glyoxisome

3. Peroxisome

4. Centriole

 

Centrioles are not membrane bound and are involved in spindle formation. They are usually associated with animal cells and are absent in angiosperms and most fungi. The most appropriate answer is, therefore, centriole.
