When concentrated HCl is added to an aqueous solution of CoCl2, its colour changes from reddish pink to deep blue. Which complex ion gives deep blue colour in this reaction?
A queous solution of CoCl2 contains [Co(H2O)6]2+ which is pinkish in colour so option (d) is incorrect.

Telomerase is an enzyme which is a
Telomerase is a ribonucleoprotein which synthesises the G rich strand of telqmeres in DNA. It adds specific DNA sequence repeats in all vertebrates to the 3' end of DNA strands in the telomere regions, which are found at the ends of eukaryotic chromosomes. The telomeres contain condensed DNA material, giving stability to the chromosomes. The enzyme is a reverse transcriptase that carries its own RNA molecule, which is used as a template when it elongates telomeres, which are shortened after each replication cycle. Telomerase was discovered by Carol W. Greiderin 1984.

Which communities are more vulnerable to invasion by outside plants and animals?
A tropical rainforest has the highest diversity of plants and animals. These plants and animals have evolved to maintain the ecological balance of forest ecosystem as a community. Also, because of highest resources available in rainforests, they are more susceptible to invasion by outside animals and plants. Any alien species invasion is going to disturb this balance of forest ecosystem.

Match column-I with column-II and select the correct answer using the codes given below.
A mammalian ovum fails to get fertilised, which one of the following is unlikely?
A) Estrogen secretion further decreases- Estrogen is secreted by the corpus luteum. Since it disintegrates in the absence of fertilization, estrogen levels fall.
B) Progesterone secretion starts declining- If pregnancy occurs, human chorionic gonadotropin is released maintaining the corpus luteum allowing it to maintain levels of progesterone. In the other way round, (i.e., in case of fertilization does not occur), progesterone levels fall due to the disintegration of the corpus luteum.
C) Corpus luteum will disintegrate- If the egg is not fertilized, the corpus luteum stops secreting progesterone and decays (after approximately 14 days in humans). It then degenerates into a corpus Albicans, which is a mass of fibrous scar tissue.
D) Primary follicle starts developing- Primary follicle is a precursor to the corpus luteum and thus this is most unlikely to happen. At the start of the menstrual cycle, some 12-20 primary follicles begin to develop under the influence of elevated FSH to form secondary follicles. The primary follicles have formed from primordial follicles, which developed in the ovary at around 10-30 weeks after conception.
So, the correct answer is option D.

In pteridophytes, spores germinate to give rise in inconspicuous, small multicellular, free living photosynthetic, thalloid gametophyte called
The main plant of Pteridophytes are sporophytes. They reproduce asexually by forming spores in sporangia. The plants may be homosporous, i.e., produce only one type of spores (e.g., Lycopodium, Pteridium) or heterosporous i.e., produce two different types of spores, smaller microspores and larger megaspores (e.g., Selaginella, Marsilea etc.).
The spores germinate to produce haploid gametophyte, called as prothallus. The homosporous Pteridophytes produce bisexual (monoecious) gametophytes, whereas heterosporous one produce unisexual (dioecious) gametophytes.
