Meiosis occurs in:


Megaspore mother cell is diploid so meiosis occurs in it.


In ovule, meiosis occurs in | Biology Questions


Mitotic anaphase differs from metaphase in possessing:

  • In the metaphase stage, all the chromosomes are arranged at the cell equator. All the chromosomes have two chromatids, joined at the centromere. These are called sister chromatids
  • The centromere splits in the anaphase stage and the two sister chromatids go to opposite poles. They are now called as chromosomes. They have single chromatid which will duplicate into two sister chromatids in the S phase. 
  • Thus, at the anaphase stage number of chromosomes remains the same even as the number of chromatids is reduced to one-half due to the splitting of the centromere.

So, the correct answer is option D.


Which of the following is a social foresting species with multiple utility?


Leucaena leucocephala (Subabul) is a social foresting species with multiple utility like green manure, biomass production, food for humans, pulpwood for paper industry etc


The product of hybridization is known as

  • Hybrid generally refers to any offspring resulting from the breeding of two genetically distinct individuals, which usually will result in a high degree of heterozygosity. 
  • Offspring resulting from the interbreeding between two animal species or plant species, also called a hybrid.

Mitosis can be studied in:


► Cell division is the basic requirement for the growth and development of the body, if the cells top dividing the body will eventually die.

There are two types of cell divisions:

  • One occurs in the gamete cell and is necessary for reproduction as this cell division leads to genetic material exchange, this is meiosis or the reductional division.
  • The other one is mitosis also known as Equational division which occurs in the somatic cells of the body and this cell division is employed in the repair of the body and increasing the number of cells for growth and development.

► In plants, mitosis occurs in the meristems which have the ability to divide continuously.

Meristems in plants are of two types:

  • Apical meristems which are present on the tips of roots and shoots and they help in the elongation of length of the plant.
  • The other is lateral meristem which helps in increasing the width of the plant.

Plants don’t repair or replace their damaged parts like leaves, branches but for new ones due to the continuous production of new cells in the meristems.

During extreme aridity, Desert Rat ______ .

  • The kangaroo rat or the dessert rat is one of the common animal found in the arid regions.
  • The animals and the plants which live in the desserts have certain adaptations which enable the organism to survive in the extreme climate.
  • The water which is produced as the product of the metabolic reactions is known as the metabolic water.
  • The kangaroo rat uses the metabolic water which is produced by the reactions in the body rather than the less amount of water which is available in the environment.

Green plants constitute:


It is because they are the primary source of energy and every food chain starts with a producer because they produce their own food and pass energy for the other tropical level.


Energy enters into the ecosystem through


Sun is the ultimate source of energy and plants (producers) are the only ones who can convert sunlight into chemical energy. Hence producers bring energy into the ecosystem.


IPM (Intergrated Pest Management) involves:

  • Integrated pest management (IPM) combines the use of biological, cultural and chemical practices to control insect pests in agricultural production.
  • It seeks to use natural predators or parasites to control pests, using selective pesticides for backup only when pests are unable to be controlled by natural means.

A plant with both male and female flowers borne over it is:


Monoecious” is translated as “single house,” meaning that male and female flowers are found on a single individual. This contrasts with the translation of dioecious, which is “double house.” This means that male flowers are on one plant and female flowers are on another plant.


During DNA replication, the strands separate by:

  • DNA helicase is responsible for opening up our DNA to allow for replication as well as the transcription of our DNA.
  • A DNA helicase is an enzyme that functions by melting the hydrogen bonds that hold the DNA into the double helix structure. It is also known as Unwindase.

In vitro synthesis of RNA and DNA was carried out first by:

  • Kornberg's success in unraveling the process of coenzyme synthesis established him as a biochemist by the early 1950s.
  • It had also suggested to him that other large molecules such as the nucleic acids RNA and DNA would be synthesized in a similar way.
  • He began his investigations into nucleic acid synthesis during the same years that James Watson and Francis Crick, among others, were trying to work out the likely structure of DNA.

Which one codes for an amino acid?

  • Exon is a part of gene that will become a part of final mature RNA produced by that gene after introns have been removed by RNA splicing.
  • Cistron is the smallest unit of genetic material that must be intact to function as a transmitter of genetic information.
  • A  codon is a sequence of three DNA or RNA nucleotides that corresponds with a specific amino acid (or stop signal) during protein synthesis.

4. Pollination takes place at 4-celled stage in pinus, i.e. two prothallial cells, a generative cell and a tube cell.


An allele is dominant if it is expressed in

Mendel formulated the law of purity of gametes on the basis of :
Solution: The reason is simple. it was due to the monohybrid cross that Mendel could find that characters that we are not expressed in the F1 generation where expressed in the F2 generation .this could mean gametes independently contained alleles.
F₂ generation of a cross between two white flowered strains of Sweet Pea yields 9 purple flowered plants : 7 white flowered plants. This is an example of

Photosystem-II takes place in


PS II occurs mostly on the granal lamellae of the chloroplast. PS II uses light energy for photolysis of H2O molecules, or oxidizing H2O molecules producing electrons, protons (H+) and O2.


Plants detoxify heavy metals by means of


Plants respond to heavy metal toxicity in a variety of different ways. Such responses include immobilization, exclusion, chelation and compartmentalization of the metal ions, and the expression of more general stress response mechanisms such as ethylene and stress proteins. Phytochelatins are oligomers of glutathione, produced by the enzyme phytochelatin synthase. They are found in plants, fungi, nematodes and all groups of algae including cyanobacteria. Phytochelatins act as chelators, and are important for heavy metal detoxification. They are abbreviated PC2 through PC11.

C2 cycle or photo respiration will begin and PGA &Phosphoglycolate is formed so,option D..


Light energy is changed to chemical energy in the process of


Photosynthesis in plants converts solar energy into chemical energy using electrons and protons from water.


According to their modes of nutrition, the fungi are classified into


Fungi are classified as per their modes of  nutrition as 
1. Saprophytic
2. Parasitic
3. Symbiotic (Mycorrhiza)
Saprophytic Fungi:
These fungi feed on dead organic matter and decaying matter.
Parasitic Fungi:
Parasitic fungi live or colonise animals, plants and other fungi living on their expenses, inflict diseases or even death.
Symbiotic (Mycorrhiza):
The mycelium feeds on organic compounds in the soil substrate through decomposition or through particular associations with plants.


The first step in photosynthesis is the


When light is incident on chloroplast, firstly exciting of an electron and then next reactions will occur.


Which of the following depicts the characteristic of both plants and animals?


In the old 5 kingdom system, the group Protista was created because there were some organisms (like Volvox and Euglena) that the scientists could not decide to which of the other groups (Monera, Fungi, Plantae and Animalia) they should belong. They have characteristics of both plants (chloroplasts with chlorophyll, so they can photosynthesize) and of animals (they have flagellae, and for colonies that are capable of coordinated movement).


Agent orange is


Agent Orange is an herbicide and defoliantchemical, one of the "tactical use" Rainbow Herbicides. It is widely known for its use by the U.S. military as part of its herbicidal warfare program, Operation Ranch Hand,during the Vietnam War from 1961 to 1971.It is a mixture of equal parts of two herbicides, 2,4,5-T and 2,4-D. In addition to its damaging environmental effects, traces of dioxin (mainly TCDD, the most toxic of its type) found in the mixture have caused major health problems for many individuals who were exposed.


Bending of stem towards light is


Heliotropism is a growth movement or bending of stem in the direction of the light. It is also called as solar tracking. Photoperiodism is the phenomenon in which various physiological reactions like flowering response to the relative length of dark or light periods. Photonasty is nastic movement of plant towards sunlight. Hydrotropism is a growth movement of plant part in response to water.


If a tree flowers thrice in a year in October, January and July in northern India, the plant is


Plants are able to detect and respond to light, gravity, changes in temperature and chemicals. Plants respond to the changing seasons to initiate their development and flowering. The photoperiodic stimulus is found to be responsible for flowering, light quality, vernalization, autonomous and GA pathways are also responsible for regulating the flowering time in plants. While vernalization and photoperiodic pathways are environmental dependents, the autonomous pathway promotes flowering in all conditions. Hence for a tree that flowers thrice a year, the plant has to be both photo and thermo-insensitive.

Energy currency (reservoir) of the cells is


Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is a complex organic chemical that provides energy to drive many processes in living cells, e.g. muscle contraction, nerve impulse propagation, and chemical synthesis. Found in all forms of life, ATP is often referred to as the "molecular unit of currency" of intracellular energy transfer

Anaerobic respiration is
Solution: Anaerobic respiration means that the respiration which occur in absence of oxygen . In human body mostly occur aerobic respiration but when we need extra energy then it is occurrence like, in muscles. so it is also known as intra- molecular respiration.

Which is worng about cytochrome P-450 ?


Cytochromes P-450 are proteins of the superfamily containing heme as a cofactor and, therefore, are hemeproteins. CYPs use a variety of small and large molecules as substrates in enzymatic reactions. They are, in general, the terminal oxidase enzymes in electron transfer chains, broadly categorized as P450-containing systems. The term "P-450" is derived from the spectrophotometric peak at the wavelength of the absorption maximum of the enzyme (450 nm) when it is in the reduced state and complexed with carbon monoxide. Most CYPs require a protein partner to deliver one or more electrons to reduce the iron (and eventually molecular oxygen). Depending on the substrate and enzyme involved, P-450 enzymes can catalyze any of a wide variety of reactions. A hypothetical hydroxylation is shown in this illustration. After the product has been released from the active site, the enzyme returns to its original state, with a water molecule returning to occupy the distal coordination position of the iron nucleus. 

So the correct option is 'it is a coloured cell'.

This is due to sodium pottasium pump hence when sodium go out of the pottasium ions took the inside place and vice versa.


Which of the following is used to determine the rate of transpiration in plants ?


A potometer is a device used for measuring the rate of water uptake of a leafy plant shoot. The main reason for water uptake by a cut shoot is transpiration (evaporation in plants) and is affected by the transpiration stream.


Of the processes which occur in leaves, the one which may lower their temperature (cooling effect)is


Transpiration lowers the temperature as during transpiration liquid water is absorbed by the plant. In the cells surrounding the substomata chamber, water evaporates from the cell wall into the chamber. When the stomata are open water vapour diffuses out into the chamber Transpiration cooling energy is needed to evaporate liquid into vapour. Energy is absorbed into liquid water and this reduces the temperature of the surrounding plant tissue and nearby atmosphere
