There are no cells in common with plants and animals, however they do share similar organelles (components within the cells).

I'm assuming this refers to specialised cells given that complex cells are specific to neuroanatomy beyond the scope of the A-Level specification.  Given this assumption, there are certain types of cells in plants and animals that serve similar functions.  For example, xylem cells in plants are considered 'ghost cells' because the development of the cell involves the discarding of all organelles.  This removal of intracellular material allows for the entire cell to serve as a vessel for the transpiration of water up to the leaf.  In this way, form follows function.  The analogous cell in an animal would be an erythrocyte in the blood, which also has discarded its intracellular material to allow for maximum space to bind oxygen to haemoglobin.  One main difference, however, is that erythrocytes are mobile and xylem cells are fixed.

Both cells falls under Eukaryotes , both cells contain nucleus, ribosomes, mitochondria and cytoplasm.

I think the best way to describe it is that plant and animals cells have complex cell components in common! For example: the nucleus, ribosomes, golgi apparatus and more internal structures. Some things which differ plant and animal cells are the cell wall and chloroplasts.

Animal and plant cells share many of the internal structures such as cell membrane, mitochondria, nucleus to name a few. However there are several internal structures which are not shared such as chloroplasts and the cell wall. How these cell divide and differential are also different for example.

Mitochondria, cytoplasm, nucleus, ribosomes, golgi apparatus, rough endoplasmic reticulum, soft endoplasmic reticulum, plasma membrane

I wouldn't say that animals and Plants share the same 'complex' cells, however I would say that they share the same cell components! Some of these components include the; nucleus, Golgi complex, endoplasmic reticulum, ribosomes, mitochondria, peroxisomes, cytoskeleton, and cell (plasma) membrane! Hope this helps:)

Both plant and animal cells are both eukaryotic cells. Both contain membrane-bound organelles like the nucleus, mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum, golgi apparatus, lysosomes, and peroxisomes.

No, they're fundamentally different.

Animal and plant cells have some of the same cell components in common including a nucleus, Golgi complex, endoplasmic reticulum, ribosomes, mitochondria, peroxisomes, cytoskeleton, and cell (plasma) MEMBRANE. BUT THEY ALSO HAVE OTHER THAT DIFFERENT SUCH AS PLANT HAVE A CELL WALL AND CHOLOPLAST.
