Which of the following disease is not caused by viruses?
Cholera is an acute epidemic infectious disease. It is characterized by watery diarrhea, extreme loss of fluid and electrolytes, and severe dehydration. It is caused by the bacterium Vibrio cholera (V. cholera).
Which of the following is involved in controlling blood sugar level?
The islets of Langerhans are responsible for the endocrine function of the pancreas. The inability of the islet cells to make insulin or the failure to produce amounts sufficient to control blood glucose level is the causes of diabetes mellitus. They are named for the German physician Paul Langerhans, who first described them in 1869. The normal human pancreas contains about 1,000,000 islets.
Which of the following are water-borne diseases?
1. Viral hepatitis
3. Typhoid fever
Select the answer using code given below—
Waterborne diseases are conditions caused by pathogenic micro-organisms that are transmitted in water. A disease can be spread while bathing, washing or drinking water, or by eating food exposed to infected water.
Carrot is the good source of —
The vitamin A in carrot comes in the form of beta-carotene, a healthy antioxidant. Eating plenty of carrots every day can improve your vision greatly.
Blood pressure is controlled by the hormone.
Antidiuretic hormone or vasopressin acts on renal collecting ducts via V2 receptors to increase water permeability which leads to decreased urine formation.T his increases blood volume, cardiac output, and arterial pressure.
Among following which one is the highest source of ascorbic acid?
Guavas are an excellent source of vitamin C, with one fruit providing 280 percent of the daily value for this nutrient. A guava will also provide you with 15 percent of the daily value for vitamin A and smaller amounts of niacin, vitamin B-6, thiamine, and riboflavin.
Which of the following part of blood carries out the function of body defense?
The white blood cell, also called leukocyte or white corpuscle, a cellular component of the blood that lacks hemoglobin, has a nucleus, is capable of motility, and defends the body against infection and disease by ingesting foreign materials and cellular debris, by destroying infectious agents and cancer cells, or by producing antibodies.
Which one of the following glands in human body enlarged due to goiter?
A goiter or goiter is a swelling in the neck resulting from an enlarged thyroid gland. The disease was later named after Irish doctor Robert James Graves, who described a case of goiter with exophthalmos in 1835
Deficiency of which one of the following causes knock-knee, bow legs, and pigeon chest in children?
Vitamin D is essential for strong bones because it helps the body use calcium from the diet. Traditionally, vitamin D deficiency has been associated with rickets, a disease in which the bone tissue doesn't properly mineralize, leading to soft bones and skeletal deformities.
Which one of the following is responsible for blue baby Syndrome?
Nitrates in drinking water. A sort of "blue baby syndrome" can also be caused by methemoglobinemia. It is widely believed to be caused by nitrate contamination in groundwater resulting in decreased oxygen carrying capacity of hemoglobin in babies leading to death.

Match List-I (Organelle) with List-II (Common names) and select the correct answer using the code given below the Lists —
The largest amount of physical and chemical molecules present in the cells is
Consider the following cell organelles of the organisms
III. Endoplasmic reticulum
Which of the ones given above is/are semi-autonomous organelle(s)?
Consider the following statements
I. Chloroplast is known as “cell within cell organelle”.
II. Chloroplast is the largest cell organelle found in plant cells.
III. Chloroplasts have single stranded extra-chromosomal DNA.
Which of the statements given above is/are correct ?
Correct Answer :- a
Explanation : a) A chloroplast is an organelle within the cells of plants and certain algae that is the site of photosynthesis, which is the process by which energy from the Sun is converted into chemical energy for growth.
b) The largest cellular organelle in a cell (plant or animal cell) is a nucleus.
In a plant cell, vacuoles are the largest in size.
c) Eukaryotic chloroplasts, as well as the other plant plastids, also contain extrachromosomal DNA molecules. Most chloroplasts house all of their genetic material in a single ringed chromosome, however in some species there is evidence of multiple smaller ringed plasmids.
