No, Cell wall is involved in maintaining the structure of cell and vacuole makes the plant cell rigid you can say but not directly involved in maintaing its structure, considering that you know the functions of these two already.

so, is it that cell wall strengthens the cell (acts as a protection), whereas, permanent vacuole helps to make inner organelles of the cells to be rigid or is it that the vacuole helps to maintain the overall shape of the plant cell, which is rectangle?? plz
