[ Forms In Which Living Cells Exist ]The carrier of hereditary characters in plants and animals is the ____A. cellB. geneC. chromosomeD. chloroplast A B C D6. [ Organisation of Life ]Which one of the following options is not true for Mucor of Rhizopus?

[ Organisation of Life ]Euglena may be classified as a plant because it _____A. has chloroplastB. has a gulletC. lives in a pondD. possesses a flagellum A B C D8. [ Forms In Which Living Cells Exist ]The following events take place during conjugation in Spirogyra 1. The protoplasm in each of the conjugating cells separate from the cell wall to form a gamete; the gamete of one filament passes through the conjugation tube to meet the gamete of the other filament 2. The zygote soon become surrounded by a thick brown wall to become zygospore which bursts after a short rest and germinates to produce a new filament 3. The nuclei of the gametes fuse to form a zygote 4. The protuberances meet and where they touch the cell-wall disappears so that a conjugation tube joining the two cells is formed 5. Protuberances appear on the walls of cells of two filaments of Spirogyra lying side by side opposite one another. Now, what is the correct sequence in which the above events occur? A. 12.3,4,5, B. 1,2,4,5,3 C. 3,4,5,2,1, D. 5.4,1,3.2 A B C D9. [ Concept of Living ]All living organisms ______A. photosynthesize B. respire C. move D. feed A B C D10. [ Forms In Which Living Cells Exist ]The function of lenticels is _____A. to remove excess water in plantB. to absorb water from the atmosphereC. for gaseous exchangeD. to absorb light A B C D11. [ Forms In Which Living Cells Exist ]Which of the following is characteristic of the animal cell? A. Presence of chloroplasts B. Possession of a cellulose cell wall C. Absence of large vacuoles D.Presence of large vacuoles A B C D12. [ Organisation of Life ]One of the function of the xylem is _____A. strengthening the stemB. manufacturing foodC. reducing loss of waterD. conducting manufactured food A B C D13. [ Forms In Which Living Cells Exist ]The movement of molecules from a region of higher concentration to one of lower concentration is _____A. diffusionB. transpirationC. osmosisD. translocation A B C D14.
