(b) Aschelminthes
(c) Platyhelminthes
(d) Annelids
Ans. (d)

Q.9. Which of the following animals does not undergo metamorphosis?    (NEET 2018)
(a) Earthworm
(b) Tunicate
(c) Moth
(d) Starfish
Ans. (a)
Metamorphosis is the process of transformation of an immature larva into an adult form in two or more distinct stages. Animals that undergo metamorphosis are said to have indirect development, e.g., tunicates, moth, starfish, etc. In case of earthworm, development is direct which means no larval stage is present and hence, there is no metamorphosis.

Q.10. Identify the vertebrate group of animals characterised by crop and gizzard in its digestive system.
(a) Amphibia
(b) Reptilia
(c) Aves
(d) Osteichthyes
Ans. (c)
The alimentary canal of birds have additional chambers, the crop and gizzard. Crop stores and softens the food, however the gizzard helps in crushing and churning the food.

Q.11. Which one of these animals is not a homeotherm?    (NEET 2018)
(a) Macropus
(b) Chelone
(c) Camelus
(d) Psittacula
Ans. (b)
Homeotherms are the animals that maintain constant body temperature, irrespective of surrounding temperature by metabolic activity.
Example: birds and mammals. Turtle (Chelone) belongs to Class Reptilia and is poikilotherm or cold blooded.

Q.12. Important characteristic that hemichordates share with chordates is     (NEET 2017)
(a) Ventral tubular nerve cord
(b) Pharynx with gill slits
(c) Pharynx without gill slits
(d) Absence of notochord
Ans. (b)
An important characteristics that hemichordates and chordates share is presence of pharyngeal gill slits. Gill slits are dorsal in position in hemichordates whereas they are lateral in chordates. A true notochord does not occur in hemichordates. Nervous system is distinctly of vertebrate type being intraepidermal in position and having a ventral nerve cord.

Perissodactyla represents the order of horse. Equidae is the family, caballus is the subspecies whereas E. ferus is the species of horse.

Q.15. In case of poriferans, the spongocoel is lined with flagellated cells called    (NEET 2017)
(a) Oscula

(c) All reptiles have a three-chambcrcd heart.
(d) All pisces have gills covered by an operculum.
Ans. (b)
Ornithorhynchus and Tachyglossus are oviparous mammals. Crocodile is a reptile which possesses four chambered heart. In cartilaginous fish (except Chimaera) gills are not covered by an operculum.

Q.17. Which one of the following characteristics is not shared by birds and mammals?     (NEET 2016)
(a) Viviparity
(b) Warm blooded nature
(c) Ossified endoskeleton
(d) Breathing using lungs
Ans. (a)
All birds are oviparous while all mammals except Ornithorhynus (duck billed platypus) and Echidna or Tachyglossus (spiny anteater) are viviparous.

Q.18. Which of the following characteristic features always holds true for the corresponding group of animals?     (NEET 2016)

 (a) Possess a mouth with an upper and a lower jaw Chordata
 (b) 3-chambered heart with one incompletely divided ventricle Reptilia 
 (c) Cartilaginous endoskeleton Chondrichthyes
 (d) Viviparous Mammalia

Ans. (c)
Phylum Chordata includes both jawless vertebrates (Agnatha) and jawed vertebrates (Gnathostomata). Crocodile of Class Reptilia has four chambered heart with two auricles and two ventricles. Duck billed platypus and spiny anteater are oviparous mammals.

Q.19. Which of the following features is not present in the Phylum Arthropoda?    (NEET 2016)
(a) Parapodia
(b) Jointed appendages
(c) Chitinous exoskeleton
(d) Metameric segmentation
Ans. (a)
Parapodia are flattened, fleshy, vertical flap-like outgrowths of body wall found in annelids on lateral sides of trunk segments. These are hollow structures enclosing coelom which is continuous with that of trunk segments. These serve the dual purpose of locomotion and respiration.
