QUESTION: 3

### An air capacitor of capacity C = 10 μ F is connected to a constant voltage battery of 12 volt. Now the space between the plates is filled with a liquid of dielectric constant 5. The charge that flows now from battery to the capacitor is

Hearing aids help the hearing impaired to hear. Hearing impairment means deafness. It can be classified as conductive loss of hearing which occurs when bones of the middle ear do not function properly and sensorineural deafness which results from long exposure to excessive noise levels. The function of hearing aid is to remove these difficulties by acting on those specific areas. Bone anchored aid system is surgically implanted and allows sound to be conducted through the bone rather than the middle ear. The system worls by enhancing natural bone transmission as a pathway for sound to travel to the inner ear. The vibrating implant stes up vibrations within the skull and inner ear that finally stimulate the nerve fibres of the inner ear allowing hearing.

In the following question, a statement of Assertion(A) is given followed by a corresponding statement of Reason(R). Read the statements carefully, and mark the correct answer.
Assertion(A): Coconut tree is distributed in coastal areas over a large part of the world.
Reason(R): Coconut fruit can float and get dispersed over thousands of kilometers before losing viability.

Solution:

Coconut tree is grown in coastal areas because it needs hot and wet climate. Coconut fruit show hydrochory i.e. the dispersal takes place through water medium. The coconut fruit is adopted the habitat of coastal areas, so the fruit can float and get dispersed over thousand of kelometers before losing viability.

QUESTION: 139

In the following question, a statement of Assertion(A) is given followed by a corresponding statement of Reason(R). Read the statements carefully, and mark the correct answer.
Assertion(A): C4-plants photosynthesize more efficiently than C3-plants.
Reason(R): C4-plants have a shorter carbon dioxide fixation cycle.

Solution:

The initial work of Kortschak, Hartt and Barr, which demonstrated that rapidly photosynthesizing sugarcane plants fix CO2 into aspartic and malic acids, was confirmed by Hatch and Slack. Hatch and Slack proposed this pathway as Hatch and Slack pathway and named such plant as C4 plants (as the products are four carbon compounds).
C4 plants possess two types of chloroplasts bundle sheath cells and mesophyll cells. The mesophyll cells of C4plants exhibit high activity of phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) carboxylase, which catalyzes the fixation of CO2 with PEP to form oxaloacetic acid. The bundle sheath cells exhibit high RuBP carboxylase and the other enzymes of the Calvin – Benson cycle. C4 plants are highly productive photosynthetically in view of the low affinity of the RuBP carboxylase for its substrate. But CO2 is concentrated as C4acids due to the activity of the PEP carbgoxylase, which in effect maintains high pool levels of CO2 C4 plants are related to very high light – harvesting saturation points. C4 plants exibit low rates of photorespiration only in bundle sheath cells. C4 plants are adapted to high temperature. C4 plants show better utilization of available water.

QUESTION: 140

In the following question, a statement of Assertion(A) is given followed by a corresponding statement of Reason(R). Read the statements carefully, and mark the correct answer.
Assertion(A): Senescence is the time when age associated defects are manifested.
Reason(R): Certain genes may be undergoing seqential switching on and off during one's life.

Solution:

Senescence is the process of aeging which is cumulative changes in an organism, organ, tissue, or cell leading to a decrease in functional capacity. In humans aeging is associated with degenerative changes in the skin, bones heart, blood vessels, lungs, nerves etc.The genetically controlled programme is regulated by regulatory genes.There is wide range of life spans among different animal species.Examples - A few days in the fruit fly to more than 100 years in tortoise.
Genes which have a deleterious effect on individual's fitness are selected.Mutations in these genes which postponed the deleterious effect of the gene to a later time in individuals's life history reduce the effect of natural selection to the gene because the selection has less time to act on it.If the gene does not have a negative effect until after the individual has reproduced the gene may escape the natural selection altogether because when selection starts to affect the gene it has already propagated to the next generation. In a related fashion some genes may also help to ensure reproduction at the cost of diseases later in life.
