Kelly knows that two of the ways scientists tell what kingdom an organism belongs to are whether it is one-celled and whether is has a nucleus. Because this organism is one-celled and has a nucleus, it belongs in the protist kingdom. Because this organism is a protist, Kelly knows that it has other cell parts, but no tissue systems. Kelly also knows that this organism lives in either water or a moist environment, and that it either makes its own food or must get it. Kelly knows this organism may be algae, ameba, or a paramecia.
Kelly is observing a one-celled organism through a microscope. Kelly notices that the cell has a nucleus. Explain how Kelly can tell what kingdom the organism belongs to and what else Kelly can tell about the organism by knowing its kingdom.
