Solution :-

Nuclear pores are small holes present in the nuclear envelope of the nucleus. This nucleus envelope is formed by the fusion of two nuclear membranes. These small holes only allow some specific substances to be transferred into the cell cytoplasm and back to the nucleus. However, they allow few molecules like RNA and proteins to move in both directions between the nucleus and the cytoplasm
