    Is the thylakoid space part of the intermembrane space (,since the thylakoid membrane is part of the inner membrane)?

    The intermembrane space is between the outer and inner membranes. Thylakoids are present inside the inner membrane so no.

    Yes it is connected but inside the inner membrane not between the inner and outer membranes which is the intermembrane space.

    Oh so even though the inner membrane and thylakoid membrane are connected the thylakoid space is not part of the intermembrane space?

    Nope, the thylakoid is enclosed only by inner membrane/thylakoid membrane but intermembrane space is only the thin gap btwn the outer and inner membrane
