What is the importance of vacuole in a cell? Why is it absent in actively dividing cells?

Asked by Topperlearning User 4th June 2014, 1:23 PM

Answer:

(a) Vacuoles contain cell sap, which is a concentrated solution. It provides turgidity to the plants and also stores food and waste materials.

(b) Actively dividing cells use their stored food to obtain energy for cell division. That is why, vacuoles are absent in actively dividing cells.
