Which of the following best describes the main idea of the endosymbiotic theory? Modern day mitochondria evolved from simple prokaryotic cells taken up by larger prokaryotes. Large prokaryotes ingested smaller eukaryotes that became modern-day chloroplasts. Eukaryotic cells evolved from primitive mitochondria that engulfed ancient prokaryotes. Ancient photosynthetic prokaryotic organisms evolved into modern ribosomes.

    in option 3 the word engulf does not make any sense...and endosymbiotic theory is base on certain organelles like mitochondria
