### Which statements about the ratio of cell surface area to cell volume is are correct?

As cell volume increases, the ratio of cell surface area to cell volume decreases. This is because the surface area increases by a square factor while the volume increases by a cube factor. A higher surface area to volume ratio is more favorable for efficient nutrient exchange and waste removal in cells.
