flagella a cell or just a projection from the cell? On the test
because it was part of the cell I put it was a cell because they
were intertwined as one. Am I wrong in my answer?
I'm afraid you were wrong. A flagellum is just part of a cell. It is an
example of an organelle, a sub-cellular structure like a mitochondrium,
nucleus, chloroplast, golgi body etc.
