2. Control center of the Cell - Nucleus
3. Protein factory of the cell - Rough Endoplasmic Reticulum
4. The fluid in the plant cell - Cell sap
5. The channels in the cytoplasm - Transmembrane channels or membrane channels
6. The storage structures of the cell - Vacuole


Extra information:

Mitochondria: It is known as the powerhouse of the cell. They are organelles that act like a digestive system that takes in nutrients, breaks them down, and creates energy-rich molecules for the cell. 


 The nucleus is a spherical organelle found in eukaryotic cells, enclosed by a nuclear envelope. It contains chromosomes.

The nucleus is rich in DNA, thus controlling gene expression, and DNA replication are the major functions of the nucleus. The nucleus is the site of transcription which forms different types of RNA from DNA.

Endoplasmic Reticulum: It is a continuous membrane system that forms a series of flattened sacs within the cytoplasm of eukaryotic cells and serves multiple functions, such as protein and lipid synthesis, folding, modification, and transport of proteins.

Vacuoles:

Vacuoles are enclosed compartments filled with inorganic and organic molecules along with water molecules and enzymes. Vacuoles store food and other nutrients required for the survival of the cell. It also helps in removing waste products to prevent cells from contamination.
