(b) The value of systolic pressure is always lower than that of diastolic pressure.
Name the two parts of a plant through which its gaseous waste products are released into the air.

Carbon dioxide and urea.
What is the role of glomerulus in the kidney ?
The function of glomerulus is to filter the blood passing through it and initiate urine formation.

What is xylem tissue ? Name the two kinds of cells in xylem tissue. State whether these cells are living or dead.
Xylem tissue is a vascular tissue in plants which carries water and minerals from the roots to the various of the plant. Xylem tissue has two types of cells ? Xylem vessels and tracheids. Both these tissues are dead cells.
What is phloem tissue ? Phloem contains two types of cells joined side by side. Name these two types of cells. State whether these cells are living or dead.
Phloem tissue is a vascular tissue which transports the food materials made in the leaves to the other parts of the plant. Phloem is made up of many cells joined end to end to form long tubes. The cells of the phloem are sieve tubes and companion cell. These are living cells.
