Cell Analogy Used the terms (capitalized) to match to the different organelles based on their function please.?

Please identify each capitalized term with these terms. Ribosomes,nucleus,cell membrane, mitochondria, lysosomes, Golgi apparatus,Nucleoli,protein,vesicles,and endoplasmic reticulum.

This is the analogy.

There is a building in the middle of town designed for making DONUTS. in the building are special OVENS where these donuts are made. In the center of the building is an OFFICE where the bakers keep all of the recipes for donuts. Within the office is a SMALL WORKSPACE where the special open parts are designed and assembled.

Outside of the office is a CONVEYOR BELT which is used to move the baking sheets and other necessities to the oven. There are many GENERATORS that provide energy to power the ovens. Once the donuts are made they are sent to the DECORATING STATION to be iced, sprinkled, and packaged up for delivery. Rolling CARTS are used to move the donuts from place to place and eventually the delivery trucks lined up along the back WALL of the building to take them out into town. If any of the Donets get damaged they get sent to the break room.

    Okay, I'll play.

    There is a building (cell) in the middle of town (some tissue) designed for making DONUTS (proteins). in the building (cell) are special OVENS (ribosomes) where these donuts (proteins) are made. In the center of the building is an OFFICE (nucleus) where the bakers keep all of the recipes for donuts. Within the office is a SMALL WORKSPACE (nucleolus) where the special oven (ribosome) parts are designed and assembled.

    Outside of the office is a CONVEYOR BELT (endoplasmic reticulum) which is used to move the baking sheets and other necessities to the oven (ribosomes). There are many GENERATORS (mitochondria) that provide energy (ATP) to power the ovens (ribosomes). Once the donuts (proteins) are made they are sent to the DECORATING STATION (Golgi apparatus) to be iced, sprinkled, and packaged up for delivery. Rolling CARTS (vesicles) are used to move the donuts (proteins) from place to place and eventually the delivery trucks lined up along the back WALL (cell membrane) of the building (cell) to take them out into town (extracellular environment). If any of the Donuts (proteins) get damaged they get sent to the break room (lysosomes).

    The analogy falls apart in a couple of places. You should read the appropriate chapters in your textbook.
