    b. flagellum

    The structures, sizes and functioning of prokaryotic and eukaryotic flagella are very different from one another.

    Actually, I don't really like this question because multiple answers are possible. The question doesn't indicate what type of analysis you have available to you. So, for example, if you isolate the ribosomes and examine them, the eukaryotic and prokaryotic ribosomes differ in size and complexity. So, this could also be a valid answer.

    The other two choices are not found in all prokaryotes or eukaryotes, and so would be less useful.
