    Cytoplasm is the thick fluid that fills up a cell and surrounds all of the organelles. It is a mixture of water and dissolved salts, ions, and organic molecules. Many of these substances are involved in reactions that occur within the cytoplasm, while others are transported to various organelles to be used. In the early days of electron microscopes, scientists thought the organelles were just floating in the gel-like cytoplasm. With improved microscope technology, they discovered a network of fibers throughout the cell, which they called the cytoskeleton. The functions of the cytoskeleton are comparable to the bones and muscles of our bodies. Just as our skeleton forms the shape of our bodies and our muscles direct our movement, the fibers of the cytoskeleton give the cell shape, anchor many of the organelles in place, and direct the movement of organelles.

    "Cytoplasm contains molecules such as enzymes which are responsible for breaking down waste and also aid in metabolic activity. Cytoplasm is responsible for giving a cell its shape. It helps to fill out the cell and keeps organelles in their place. Without cytoplasm, the cell would be deflated and materials would not be able to pass easily from one organelle to another." Some points I found online about cytoplasm :)
