Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Cytoskeleton is the frame that gives shape to the cell.

Functions of cytoskeleton:-Through a series of inter cellular proteins, the cytoskeleton gives a cell its shape, offers support, and facilitates movement through three main components: micro filaments, intermediate filaments, and micro tubules. The cytoskeleton helps the cell move in its environment and controls the movement of all of the cell's interior workings.

Structural similarities of endoplasmic reticulum, mitochondrion, and golgi apparatus :-All are made of membrane enclosed chambers ,surface area are increased by folds and layers.
