Well, a cell is the basic structural and functional unit of all known living organisms. It is the smallest unit of life that qualifies as a living thing, and is often referred to as the building block of life!

It is a clump of organelles joined in a membranous structure which can be divided into two different categories, Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic cells.

If you want to know more about Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic cells or the organelles in a cell you can always search it up. Wikipedia helps.
