Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Plant Growth And Development - 3 - Question 9

Chailakhyan (1936) a Russian  investigator who researched on photoperiodism proposed the term ‘florigen’. According to him ‘Florigen Complex’, the true flowering hormone includes two group of substances formed in leaves (i) Gibberellins which are necessary for the formation and growth of stem and (ii) Anthesins which are necessary for flower formation. Acting together they form the substance named ‘florigen’

31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Plant Growth And Development - 3 - Question 11

Highest auxin concentration occurs [1990]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Plant Growth And Development - 3 - Question 11

Highest concentration of auxins occurs at the growing tips was proved by Went in 1928 by his experiment on Avena coleoptile. It was demonstrated that auxins are synthesized at the tips and then translocated downwards where they cause growth.

Phytohormones are : [1990]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Plant Growth And Development - 3 - Question 12

 Phytohormones are plant hormones which are synthesized by the plants and act as regulators and influence physiological process like growth, movements etc. auxins, gibberellins etc. are the phytohormones.

31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Plant Growth And Development - 3 - Question 13

Abscisic acid controls [1990]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Plant Growth And Development - 3 - Question 13

Abscisic acid as the name suggests cause abscission due to which leaves fall. It also acts as a growth inhibitor & induce bud dormancy in various plants.

Phototropic and geotropic movements are linked to : [1990]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Plant Growth And Development - 3 - Question 14

Phototropic movements are the plant responses towards light. Generally plant shoot and flower show positive phototropism while geotropism is the plant response to the gravity of earth. Generally roots are positively geotropic. All these movements are linked to Auxin.

31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Plant Growth And Development - 3 - Question 15

Which of the following movement is not related to auxin level [1990]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Plant Growth And Development - 3 - Question 15

Which of the following hormones can replace vernalisation? [1989]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Plant Growth And Development - 3 - Question 16

Vernalization is the low temperature treatment for flowering in plants. Plants are treated (seeds and seedlings) with very low temperature to promote germination. A Lang & co-workers demonstrated that the application of gibberellins can replace the cold treatment or vernalization in many plants.

Mowing grass lawn facilitates better maintenance because [1989]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Plant Growth And Development - 3 - Question 18

Apical dominance is a common observation in vascular plants. If apical meristem is intact & growing, the lateral tips growth is suppressed. According to Thimann & Skoog the Auxin, synthesized in apical meristem, in translocated downwards & inhibits the growth of lateral tips. That is why mowing grass lawns facilitates better maintenance.

Which one increases in the absence of light?

[1989]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Plant Growth And Development - 3 - Question 19

In general intense light retards growth in plants. High light intensities induce dwarfening of the plant. Absence of light reduces the overall growth, photosynthesis, uptake of minerals and ascent of sap. However, the elongation of internodes is seen to occur in the absence of light.

31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Plant Growth And Development - 3 - Question 22

Cut or excised leaves remain green for long if induced to root or dipped in [1988]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Plant Growth And Development - 3 - Question 22

 Because cytokinins help cells in retaining chlorophyll for longer time. Cytokinin delay the senescence (ageing) of leaves and other organs.

31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Plant Growth And Development - 3 - Question 23

Gibberellins promote [1988, 97]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Plant Growth And Development - 3 - Question 23

Some light sensitive seeds like Lectuca sativa (Lettuce) germinate in complete darkness with the help of Gibberellins which otherwise require specific light conditions.

Phytochrome is involved in [1988]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Plant Growth And Development - 3 - Question 24

Borthwick & Hendricks (1952) gave the concept of phytochrome. Phytochrome is a coloured protein pigment located in plasma membrane to perceive  the photoperiodic stimulus in leaves. It may exist in two interconvertable forms Pr and Pfr (red and far red light absorbing forms)

Movement of leaves of Sensitive Plant, Mimosa pudica are due to [1988, 99]

Detailed Solution for 31 Years NEET Previous Year Questions: Plant Growth And Development - 3 - Question 25

 Mimosa pudica (touch me not) leaves show seismonastic movement in response to physical contact. The movement is due to turgor changes due to ejection of water by cells of pulvinus (swollen leaf base) on touching it. It causes folding and drooping of leaves.
