(b) Give reasons :
(i) Raw mango is green in colour while ripe one is yellow.
(ii) Plasma membrane is a semi-permeable membrane.
(iii) Anthers in anemophilous flowers are loosely attached.
(iv) Disposable needles must be used for injection.
(v) Anaerobic respiration is an incomplete break down of glucose.
Answer:
(i) Raw mango contains chlorophyll which is a green pigment but when mango ripens, chlorophyll disintegrates and xanthophyll, carotene takes their places. So green colour changes to yellow or orange-red colour.
(ii) Plasma membrane allows only certain substances to pass through it while it prevents entry of other substances. So, it is called a semi-permeable membrane.

(iii) In anemophilous flowers, pollination occurs through wind. So anthers containing pollen grains are loosely attached to filament so that they can easily be blown away by slight wind movement.

(iv) Injection needles if shared by more than one person may introduce the HIV virus from one individual to another. So to prevent the transmission of HIV, disposable needles are used for injection.

(v) In anaerobic respiration, glucose is not completely oxidized. In plants or yeast cells glucose, in the absence of oxygen or insufficient oxygen, forms ethanol and carbon dioxide. In animal cells it produces lactic acid. Thus, incomplete break down of glucose occurs because when glucose completely breaks down, it gives carbon dioxide and water.

Question 3.
(a) State the exact function of the following :
(i) Municipalities
(ii) Pleural fluid
(iii) Meibomian glands
(iv) Red bone marrow
(v) HCL in gastric juice
Answer:
(i) Municipalities look after sanitation, supply of safe drinking water, arrange vaccination programmes, keep statistical records of births and deaths.

(ii) Pleural fluid is found between outer and inner membrane of lungs which provides lubrication for free movement of expanding and contracting lungs.

(iii) The secretion of meibomian glands is oily which lubricates the margins of eyelids and prevents the overflow of tears.

(iv) Red bone marrow produces RBCs.

(v) HCL makes the medium of stomach acidic so that pepsin enzyme gets activated to digest proteins. It also kills the germs that may have entered along with our food.

Golgi body synthesizes and secretes enzymes and hormones. It forms the acrosome of sperm.
(v) Dictyosomes

Question 5.
(a) Answer the following questions briefly :
(i) What is the function of ciliated epithelium and where is it found ?
(ii) Give advantages of long and feathery stigma in flowers.
(iii) Potatoes kept in basket during rainy season give out small shoots. Would you call it as germination ?
(iv) What special precaution would one take to conduct experiment on respiration process in green plants ?
(v) What are two forms of dysentery and their causal agent ?
Answer:
(i) The cells of ciliated epithelium have fine hair-like projections called cilia which constantly moves removing dust, foreign particles etc., from that region where it is present. It is found in the lining of trachea.

(ii) Long and feathery stigma is present in anemophilous flowers i.e., where pollination is done by wind. This type of stigma can easily trap pollen grains carried by wind.

(iii) No, it is called sprouting where small shoots arise from eye buds of potato tuber. But in case of germination, tiny shoots arise from seeds of plants.

(iv) We should not keep the experimental set-up containing the green plant under sunlight as carbon dioxide released will be used by plants for photosynthesis. So we should conduct respiration experiment in a dark room.
