Solution

Cell- A cell is the smallest unit of life. Cells are often called the building blocks of life .
They contain living components like the,
Nucleus
Mitochondria
Ribosome
Vacuole
Golgi complex
Endoplasmic Reticulum
In plant cells we also have plastids and cell wall..
None of them are called the structural and functional unit of life because the functions and structures of cell organelle cumulatively sum up to the function of the cell
However, an individual organelle is incapable of carrying all the activities of a cell
