What cell organelles are the most structurally related within an animal cell?

It's a homework question and the choices that my teacher gave me are:
mitochondria and golgi apparatus
ribosome and vacuole
cell membrane and nucleus
nucleolus and ribosomes

Cell Membrane and Nucleus are related because their membrane is made the same way.


The cell membrane as well as the nucleus are both made by a bilayer of phospholipidic membranes. The other organelles you quoted do not relate in such structure.
Mitochondria has some inner folding, interstitial space etc.. while Golgi is a plain membrane. Ribosome is RNA-based and the vacuole is a membrane, not related either.
