The point is... if you have a homework question that you don't quite understand. You SHOULD say something to show that you've TRIED to answer the question.
For instance, if you teacher were to ask:
"what are 3 functions of the endoplasmic reticulum?"
And you were to say:
"I think the endoplasmic reticulum functions by: Providing an environment for protein folding, a location for glycosylation, and it .. provides ATP for the cell"
Someone would respond and say (somethign like...)
" Reasons 1 and 2 are correct, however ATP is 'made' by mitochondria ... An example of 3rd function could be directing and transporting proteins to other organelles or to the secretory pathways."
... there is nothing wrong with being incorrect. I make mistakes EVERYDAY, there are things that I come across EVERYDAY, that I don't understand. But, I make it a point to try to teach myself ... so that I can learn, and be better prepared in the future.
