Expert Answer:

No, a cell cannot survive, if its cytoplasm is removed. This is because cytoplasm is the site of many important chemical reactions. Different cell organelles are also embedded in the cytoplasm. So, if the cytoplasm is removed, organelles will not be able to function and the cell will ultimately die.
