correct order of sedimentation of subcellular structure during differential configuration among lysosome, mitochondria, nucleus, ribosomes

Answer:

The method of differential centrifugation is based on the principle that the cell components separate on the basis of the size and density. Under a given centrifugal force, particles that are relatively large or dense will sediment more rapidly than particles that are smaller and lighter. With respect to the major components found in cells, the order of sedimentation is typically (from most to least dense): nuclei, mitochondria, lysosomes, plasma membrane, endoplasmic reticulum, and contractile vacuoles. Depending on the specific cell type, however, this order can vary. 

So, the correct order of sedimentation is Nucleus → Mitochondria → Lysosome → Ribosome
