A high altitude, a body explodes at rest into two equal fragments with one fragment receiving horizontal velocity of 10 m/s. Time taken by the two radius vectors connecting point of explosion of fragments to make 90° is
As the body at rest explodes into two equal parts, they acquire equal velocities in opposite directions according to conservation of Momentum.
When the angle between the radius vetors connecting the point of explosion to the fragments is 90°, Each radius vector makes an angle 45° with the vertical. To satisfy this condition, the distance of free all AD should be equal to the horizontal range in same interval of time.

Chara is a genus of green algae. They are multicellular and superficially resemble land plants. They prefer less oxygenated and hard water. They are covered with calcium carbonate deposits and are commonly known as stoneworts.
Chara reproduces by both sexual and vegetative modes. Sexual reproduction of Chara is an advanced oogamous type. The sex organs are macroscopic and large. The male sex organ is yellow to red in colour, called globule. The female sex organ is more or less oval and green in colour and called nucule or oogonium. On maturity, globule develops into antheridia filaments made up of antheridium cells. Oogonium is always situated singly above the globule or antheridium.

Pyruvate enters the Krebs cycle, producing carbon dioxide, reduced NAD and ATP. Reduced NAD enters the electron transport chain, where oxygen is reduced to water and ATP is produced.

Unisexuality of flowers prevents
Unisexuality of flowers prevents autogamy, but not geitonogamy. In self fertilisation , the male and, female gametes are derived from the same individual. Among plants, self fertilisation also called autogamy is common in many cultivated species, e.g., wheat and oats. However, self fertilisation is a form of inbreeding and does not allow for the mixing of genetic material; if it occurs over a number of generations it will result in offspring being less vigorous and productive than those resulting from cross fertilisation.

Match the column-I with column-II and choose the correct option.
Incomplete dominance (discovered by Correns) is the phenomenon where the dominant allele does not completely express itself. The inheritance of flower colour in Antirrhinum sp. is a good example of incomplete dominance. Haemophilia is a sex linked recessive disease. It is a type of Mendelian disorder since its inheritance follows the principles of Mendelian genetics and can be traced in a family by pedigree analysis. Transforming principle was given by Griffith. Dihybrid cross is a cross when two allelic pair are used for crossing. Several dihybrid crosses were carried out in Drosophila to study genes that ware sex linked.
Which one is the component of ornithine cycle?
Carbon dioxide and ammonia undergo ornithine cycle in the liver cells. It takes place in five major steps. The extra proteins in the body are degraded by the process of deamination where the NH2 group is removed and it is converted into ammonium ions in the liver.
a) The ammonium ions combines with carbon dioxide in the presence of enzyme carbomyl phosphate synthase. It consumes two molecules of ATP.
b) Carbamoyl phosphate is converted to citrulline by enzyme ornithine transcarbamoylase.
c) A condensation reaction occurs between the amino group of aspartate and the carbonyl group of citrulline to form argininosuccinate. This reaction is ATP dependent and is catalyzed by argininosuccinate synthetase.
d) Argininosuccinate undergoes cleavage by argininosuccinase to form arginine and fumarate.
e) Arginine is cleaved by arginase to form urea and ornithine.
So, the correct answer is 'Ornithine, citrulline and arginine'.
Which of the following statement is correct about incomplete linkage?
(i) It is phenomenon in which more recombinants are produced in F2 generation.
(ii) More parental combination are produced in F1 generation.
(iii) Genotypes which are present in hybrid reappear in high frequency in F2 generation.
(iv) It is a phenomenon in which two chromosomes are linked.
Morgan carried out several dihybrid crosses in Drosophila to study genes th at were sex linked. The crosses were similar to the dihybrid crosses carried out by Mendel in peas. He observed that when two genes were grouped on the same chromosome, same genes are highly linked or associated and show low recombination. When the genes are loosely linked, they show higher recombination. Morgan attributed this due to the physical association or linkage of the two genes and coined the term linkage to describe this physical association of genes on a chromosome and the term recombination to describe the generation of non-parental gene combinations; His student Alfred Sturtevant used the frequency of recombination between gene pairs on the same chromosome as a measure o f the distance between genes and ’mapped’their position on the chromosome. Morgan hybridised yellow bodied and white eyed females with brown bodied and red eyed male (wild type) (cross-A) and inter-crossed their F1 progeny.
