Solution

I agree because of the cells in the body of an elephant is not necessarily bigger than those in a rat, it is not true that bigger organisms have cells of bigger size in their body.

The size of the cell in an organism is related to the function it performs. For example, the nerve cells in both, the elephant and the rat are long and branched. They perform the same function that is of transferring messages.
