Prokaryotes are organisms containing a prokaryotic cell. A prokaryotic cell does not have a true nucleus (well defined or well-organised nucleus). They also lack membrane-bound organelles, centrioles and nucleolus. The nuclear material is found without a cover, i.e the nuclear material remain uncovered, exposed or naked which indicates the absence of nuclear membrane so the nuclear material or nucleus lies free in the cytoplasm (part of the cell which is present in b/t the nucleus and the cytoplasm).

On the other hand eukaryotes are the organisms containing true nucleus along with the presence of membrane bound organelles, centrioles and nucleolus. Here, the nuclear material is not found without a cover, i.e, the nuclear material does not remain uncovered, exposed or naked which indicates the presence of nuclear membrane. So, the nuclear material or the nucleus is well bounded by a nuclear membrane.

Eg. For eukaryotes:-bacteria, blue-green algae.

Eg for prokaryotes:-multi-cellular organisms.

There are two types of cells- Eukaryotic cells and Prokaryotic cells.
Eukaryotic cells are those which have a well developed nucleus.
Prokaryotic cells are those which don't have a well developed nucleus. Cells that lack a membrane-bound nucleus are called prokaryotes.

Prokaryotic:primitive cells, do not have cell organelles, eukaryotic:animal cells have cell organelles like mitochondria also have nucleus and nucleolus.

I think there is a sincere error in the options given. Option C says "membrane-bound by organelles" instead of "Organelles bound by membranes".

But when we search in google your getting to know prokaryotes have nucleoules and they are telling the reason about RNA so what the answer.

I think prokaryotic cells have nucleus but they lack the genetic material inside them and they are also known as the primitive cells.

Prokaryotic cells are not contain the nucleous, nucleolus, and nuclear membrane. They are also not contain the some cell organelles.

Prokaryote has nucleus surrounded by cell wall and contain various organelles but they lack nucleolus and cell membrane.

Prokaryote is a unicellular organism having cells lacking membrane-bound nuclei. Prokaryotics are the primitive cells.

Prokaryotic cells are the most primitive type of cells and does not contain any nucleus or membrane bound organelle.
