##### Solution :-

 Prokaryotic Cell Eukaryotic Cell 1. Size: Generally small (1-10 μm)                                                                     1 μm = $$10^{-6}$$m 2. The nuclear region is poorly defined due to the absence of a nuclear membrane and known as the nucleoid. 3. There is a single chromosome. 4. Membrane-bound cell organelles absent. 1. Size: Generally large (5-100 μm) 2. Nuclear region: well defined and surrounded by a nuclear membrane. 3. There are more than one chromosomes. 4. Membrane-bound cell organelles present.
