In terms of structure,flagella is long and not more than two situated at the TOP of an organism e.g while cilia is a hairy-like structure found round the body of an organism e.g paramecium

They both help in the movement. Flagella can sense temperature. Perhaps you mean 3 types of cilia or flagella?

yes centrosomes, ribosomes, and actin are required by the cell to form cilia or flagella.

Cilia differs from flagella in terms of the structure and size. Cilia are small tiny structures which look like hairs while flagella are usually long and looks like a whip.

No it doesn't have a flagellum nor a cilia

Flagella are longer than cilia but, not as numerous as cilia. Cilia usually surround the surface of a cell. Flagella are usually found only once (eg. sperm)

Protozoans move with the help Pseudopodia, cilia and flagella. Pseudopodia - Amoeba Cilia - Paramaecium Flagella - Euglena

The cilia and flagella are two movement mechanisms used in different bacteria. Cilia is many of little "hairs" that surround the bacterium, where as flagella is one or more large tail(s) coming out of one part of the bacterium. You can type "cilia" or "flagella" into google images for pictures.

Cilia and flagella are both used for locomotion. Cilia are tiny hair structures that surround the cell, while flagella are long, whip-like single tails that propels the cell in one direction.

It is false that cilia and flagella are cell surfaces adapted for respiration. Cilia and flagella are hair like structures of a cell that help a cell to move.

Bacteria do not have cilia. They have fimbriae and flagella.

No there are no cilia. There is only one flagella

Centrioles are responsible for the formation of the centrosomes, cilia, and flagella. They are cylindrical organelles in eukaryotic cells.
