Q.5. What are villi? What are their location and function?

Ans. 

  • The inner wall of the small intestine has thousands of finger-like outgrowths called villi. 
  • These are found in the small intestine. The villi increase the surface area for the absorption of food.

Q.6. Where is the bile produced? Which component of the food does it digest?

Ans. Bile is produced in the liver and is stored in a sac called the gall bladder. Bile plays an important role in the digestion of fats.Short Question Answers - Nutrition in Animals Class 7 Notes | EduRevLiver with Gall Bladder


Q.7. Name the type of carbohydrates that can be digested by ruminants but not by humans. Give the reasons also.

Ans. Cellulose is a carbohydrate that can be digested by ruminants. Ruminants have a large sac-like structure between the small intestine and large intestine. The cellulose of the food is digested by the action of certain bacteria which are not present in human beings.

Q.8. Why do we get instant energy from glucose?

Ans. Because glucose easily breakdown in the cell with the help of oxygen and give carbon dioxide, water and energy.

Q.9. Which part of the digestive canal is involved in:

(i) Absorption of food __________.

(iv) Killing of bacteria _________.
(v) Formation of faeces ____________.
Ans.
(i) Small intestine

Q.10. Write one similarity and one difference between the nutrition in amoeba and human beings.

Ans.

  • Similarity: During the digestion of food, in amoeba digestive juices are secreted into the food vacuole. They act on the food and break it into simpler substances. In a human being, the inner walls of the stomach and the small intestine also secrete the digestive juices. The digestive juices convert complex substances of food to simpler ones.
  • Difference: Amoeba feeds on some microscopic organisms. When it senses food, it pushes out pseudopodia around the food particles. The food is trapped in a food vacuole. Human beings take food through the mouth, digest and utilize it. The food is gradually digested as food travels through the various compartments.

Q.12. Can we survive only on raw, leafy vegetables/grass? Discuss.

Ans. 

  • We know that including all animals, fungi, many bacteria, non-green plants, and human beings do not possess the ability to synthesize their own food. Therefore depend on autotrophs for their food supply either directly or indirectly.
  • The green plants (leafy vegetables/grass) trap solar energy and manufacture their food in the form of glucose. So, leafy vegetables and grass can provide sufficient energy required for the survival of human beings.
