(c) Connective tissue connects the different organs in the body.
(d) Nervous tissue consists of nerve cells and are present in the nervous system.
Q17. Why is blood called connective tissue?
Ans. The blood is composed of cells and plasma. Plasma is a fluid and cells like red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets are present in it. All these cells are connected due to plasma. It also transports absorbed nutrients, water gases like (O2 and CO2) to the different parts of the body and connects them.
Q18. Name three types of muscle tissues and give function of each.
Ans. Three types of muscle tissues are:
(a) Striated muscle
(b) Smooth muscle
(c) Cardiac muscle
(a) Striated muscle: These muscles show alternate light and dark bands or striations. They are voluntary muscles and present in skeletal tissues, help in movement of body and bones.
(b) Smooth muscle: These are involuntary muscles, control the movement of food in alimentary canal, contraction and relaxation of blood vessels. Present in iris, uterus etc.
(c) Cardiac muscle: These muscles are present in heart which help in the rhythmic contraction and relaxation of heart throughout the life.
Q19. State the difference between simple tissues of plants.
Ans. The simple tissues of plants are:

Q22. Explain the structure, function and location of nervous tissue.
Ans. Structure: Nervous tissue consists of cells called nerve cells joined end to end (neurons). A neuron (nerve cell) consists of a cell body with nucleus and cytoplasm. From these cell body a long thin hair-like parts arise called axon and many short branched parts called dendrites.
Location: Nervous tissue are present in brain, spinal cord and nerves.
Function: Nervous tissue receives the stimuli and transmit the stimulus rapidly from one place to another within the body.
The nerve impulse allows us to move our muscles and respond to any stimuli.

Ans. The upper layer of plant body, the dermal tissue and a hard cuticle covering protect the plant body from invasion of parasites and other harmful agents.
Q26. Which type of permanent tissue help the aquatic plants to float?
Ans. Aerenchyma is the type of parenchyma tissue that contains air cavities, makes the plant body light, which help the aquatic plants to float.

Q28. Name the part of phloem with perforated walls.
Ans. Sieve tubes of Phloem tissues are responsible for conduction of nutrients. Sieve tubes have perforated walls but lack a nucleus. Companion cells, phloem parenchyma and phloem fibers are other parts of phloem.
Q29. What are companion cells and are what are they associated with?
Ans. Companion cells are the specialized parenchyma cells associated with the sieve tube elements of phloem. They help in the development and function of a sieve-tube element. Companion cells move sugars and amino acids in and out of the sieve elements.
