Answer

A light microscope can be used to examine living objects and allows the object to be viewed directly by the human eye, but it has lower magnification capabilities compared to an electron microscope. Transmission electron microscopes produce rendered images of objects on a micrograph. A scanning electron microscope provides a 3D rendering of the surface of an object.
