A:

Hi Sayani,

Cells don't look alike because different shapes and structures are needed for different tasks. For example, a neuron is a long "string" shape in order to stretch to connect to other neurons.Similarly, a heart cell is diamond shaped cell which is needed in order to stretch and contract the heart and remain attached to the other cells.
