(b) Study the figure below and answer the following questions :
(i) Identify the parts labelled in the figure.

(iii) Generative nucleus divides to form two male gamete nuclei/sperm nuclei. Tube nucleus directs the growth of pollen tube through style to reach the embryo sac present in ovary and then it disintegrates.
(iv) Pollen tube carrying two sperm nuclei and tube nucleus passes through the stigma and style by dissolving the tissues with the help of enzymes and finally reaches the ovule containing embryo sac. It pushes through micropyle and reaches the embryo sac containing female gamete.

(i) Self pollination and Cross pollination
(ii) Androecium and Gynoecium

(ii) Why level of mercury in test tube B falls after few days ?
(iii) Wltich gas is liberated by this process and how can you prove its presence ?
(iv) What is a control in this experiment and why ?
(i) It demonstrates anaerobic respiration in germinating seeds.
(ii) After few days, the mercury level falls off because due to anaerobic respiration carbon dioxide is produced which will occupy the space in the top of test tube and mercury level falls down.
(iii) Carbon dioxide gas is produced. If we will introduce KOH solution in test tube B, KOH will float on the surface of mercury which will absorb carbon dioxide gas and again mercury level will rise up in the test tube.
(iv) Test tube A is a control as boiled, sterilized seeds are taken which cannot undergo respiration either aerobically or anaerobically.
(a) Give reasons :
(i) Scientific names of living organisms are considered better than their common names.
(ii) Every living room in the house should get direct sunlight at least for a short time.
(iii) Tinned and sealed foods are not always safe to eat.
(iv) Protoplasm can not be analysed chemically.
(v) Maximum food is absorbed in ileum part of small intestine.
(i) People from different countries with different languages use different names for a particular organism. So it creates confusion, hence to avoid any confusion it is better to assign a scientific name to living organisms than their common names.
(ii) Direct sunlight helps in killing the microbes like bacteria or fungi present in the room. Thus, it keeps the air inside room clean and pure, making healthy environment.
(iii) Sometimes in tinned and canned foods a special bacteria is found which causes severe food poisoning called botulism. Thus, they are not always safe to eat.
(iv) The chemical composition of protoplasm is very complex and as soon as it is removed from an organism, it ceases, so it cannot be analysed chemically.
(v) Ileum part of small intestine is very long and it provides more surface area for absorption of food. Villi which are finger-like projections in ileum are present numerously thus increase the surface area for absorption. Thus, maximum food is absorbed in ileum.
(b) Study the diagram given below and answer the following questions :
