why in a cell some ribosomes are not attached to endoplamic recticulum?

Expert Answer:

Some ribosomes that manufacture proteins are not attached to the endoplasmic reticulum. These so-called free ribosomes are dispersed in the cytoplasm and typically make proteins—many of them enzymes—that remain in the cell.

The proteins that are synthesized of free ribosomes are released into the cytosol.
