Hint: The critical thing to remember is both plant cells and animal cells are eukaryotic cells, but still there are some differences where all organelles are not typical in plants and animals.

Complete answer:
Eukaryotic cells are usually larger than prokaryotic cells.

Eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells have some similar things such as the presence of plasma membrane and cytoplasm etc.
There are some differences in such as

Membrane-bound nucleus and some membrane-bound organelles such as mitochondria, chloroplast, endoplasmic reticulum etc.

Significant differences in plant and animal cells include
- Cell wall- it is present in a plant cell, absent in animal cell
- Chloroplast- it is present in plant cell useful for photosynthesis, while absent in animal cell
- Vacuoles- larger in plant cells than in animal cells
- Lysosomes- which are absent or very rarely present in plant cells and present in all animal cells.
- When coming to locomotory organelles which are usually absent in plant cells and present in animal cells.

Correct option: B. Cell membrane, chromosomes, cytoplasm and mitochondria.

Note: The easy trick in this question is eliminating the known options, we all know that chloroplast is present in only plant cells will help to reduce two possibilities and knowledge of the main difference like cell wall, which is present only in plant cells.
