Other than in the nucleus, DNA can be found in the mitochondria of a cell.

the only way for the genetical reforming is the nucleus and also nucleus can control the functioning of the entire cell mostly than other organells.

The nucleus regulates all the activities of the cell, and damage to the nucleus would be more dangerous to the cell than damage to any other part of the cell, therefore it is useful for the nucleus to be insulated from possible damage, by the rest of the cell.

Besides cell nucleus holding DNA, there are other structures also in the cell holding DNA. These are mitochondria and chloroplasts.

Its found in its entirety in the nucleus, or the maternal DNA can be found in the mitochondria (which is heartier and denatures slower than the material in the nucleus).

a plant cell nucleus is the same size as an animal cell nucleus

It is not always in the center of the cell. No more than if the endoplasmic reticulum is found there. In some cell types it is found toward the edge. It may be due to what is actually in the cell.

Nucleus of An AtomThe nucleus of an atom is a dense region consisting of protons and neutrons. The nucleus is found in the center of an atom. More than 99% of the atom's mass is found in the nucleus.Nucleus of a CellA cell's nucleus contains much of the genetic material. Most people think of the nucleus as the "brain" of a cell. Inside the nucleus is the nucleolus, which produces ribosomes.

Plant chloroplasts and mitochondria are the other places where DNA can be found.

well, a cell has one nucleus

A cell nucleus would be smaller than a cell because a cell nucleus is inside the cell, so it has to fit inside.

No, chromosomes are smaller than cells. Chromosomes are found in the nucleus of cells which codes for the synthesis of proteins.

because the nucleus is not an atom; an atom is smaller than a cell

No, chromosomes are not larger than a cell. They are much smaller than a cell, and are actually smaller than the nucleus.

Bacteria are called prokaryotes because a bacterium cell lacks a nucleus. The DNA is found as loops in discrete sites in the cytoplasm, rather than in a nucleus.

A bacterial cell has no nucleus. It is prokaryotic, meaning before nucleus, whereas a plant cell has a nucleus and is eukaryotic, meaning true nucleus. Also, plant cells are often specialized whereas bacterial never are.

It depends on the cell. If it is a eukaryotic cell than it contains a nucleus and a number of different parts, but a prokaryotic cell lacks a nucleus but can contain a cell wall, but not always.

if it shuts down than the cell and nucleus will both 'die'

A cell in animals having more than one nucleus is called a multinucleate cell.Protozoans and fungi have multinucleated cells.In humans spinal cord cells are multinucleated.Intestinal parasites in genus Giardia are multinucleated. They have 2 nuclei per cell.
