Nucleated part of nerve cell is called
Axon is the long, thin hair like part arising from the cell body of the neuron.
Dendrites are short, branched parts arising from the cell body or cyton. Dendrites are many in number.
Cyton is a part of the neuron containing the nucleus. It is also called a cell body. Therefore, option C is correct.
Presence of vessel in the wood is
Vessels are usually present in angiosperms while in other lower plants they are not present.
Which of the following is an epidermal cell
Epidermal cells from the outer covering or surface which is mainly involved in protection and secretion. Guard cells, root hairs, and trichomes are all modifications of the epidermal cells.
(i) Root hair
Unicellular hairs are the extensions of an epidermal cell of roots in the root hair zone.
It increases the surface area for absorption of water and minerals.
(ii) Epidermal appendages
These are called trichomes and are epidermal cell modifications. There may be unicellular or multicellular.
Some perform for stinging produces and some glandular secretions.
(iii) Guard cell
These are bean-shaped cells present on the epidermis of the leaf.
These help in gaseous exchange and transpiration.
Which among the following is the correct meaning of Phyllotaxy?
The manner of arrangement of leaves in stem or branch is called Phyllotaxy
Cavity or lumen is narrow in
Lumen are cavities present inside the cell,cells of sclerenchyma tissue have narrow lumen because sclerenchyma are strongly lignified which lead to compressing the cell and thus only narrow cavity is left
Which tissue does lack blood supply and heals slowly?
Cartilage heals slowly because it has no blood supply
A plant belonging to which of the following groups would show least adaptation to marine water?
The correct option is C.
A plant belonging to the angiosperms group would show least adaptation to marine water. Angiosperms are vascular plants that have stems, roots, and leaves.
The dead element present in the phloem is
Phloem fibres are thick walled, elongated spindle shaped dead cells which possess narrow lumen. They provides mechanical support to the tissue. Phloem parenchyma are thin walled-living cells of parenchyma. They have two functions, storage and lateral food conduction
Girth of stem increases due to
The girth of the stem increases due to lateral meristem or cambium
Which of the following plant growth hormone was recognized by Japanese scientists?

Find the true statement:
C is the correct option.
The chief function of vessels in the plant body is
Xylem, plant vascular tissue that conveys water and dissolved minerals from the roots to the rest of the plant and also provides physical support.
A tissue is a group of cells which are
Tissue is a group of cells which act together to perform a specific task. If we talk about a single tissue then, all the cells constituting it performs similar function.
Various functions like photosynthesis, storage, excretion performed by _________.
Parenchyma forms the bulk of plant ground tissue, where they may be specialised to function in photosynthesis, storage, or transport.
Lignin is the important constituent in the cell wall of
