Hi Ishrit,

Ribosome is the exception and it does not have the membrane. However, it has a specific function to play. The structure of ribosome in eukaryotes differs from that of prokaryotes. In prokaryotes ribosomes are free floating bodies in the cytoplasm, however; in eukaryotes the ribosomes is not only found in the cytoplasm but it is also found attached to the membrane of rough endoplasmic reticulum.
