Can someone please help me with this one?
Studies have shown that some medications can damage mitochondria. Which of the following would you predict to be the most likely long-term effect on an organism with damaged mitochondria?
Proteins would not be modified after being synthesized, and the organism would be unable to grow.
The organism would suffer as its cells would be less able to provide the energy needed to carry out life functions.
Substances would not be able to enter or leave the cells of the organism, and affected cells would eventually burst.
Errors would be made during DNA replication, and the organism would be more likely to develop cancer.

I am confused on this one can someone please help me?
I would go with the organism would suffer as its cell would be less able to provide energy because mitochondria are used for ATP. However I would need to refresh my memory. BUt I am pretty sure mitchondria are used for energy synthesis
Mitochondria are also referred as the powerhouse of the cell ( pretty much the equivalent of the chloroplasts in plant cells)
