1. Fertilisation takes place in the ampulla of the fallopian tube,
2. Endometrium,
b.
A – Trophoblast
B – Inner cell mass

Answer 8.
The process of copying genetic information from one strand of the DNA into RNA is termed as transcription. The strands are transcripted 1. If both strands act as a tem­plate, they would code for RNA molecule with different sequences and in turn, if the code for proteins, the sequence of amino acids in the proteins would be different. A transcription unit in DNA is defined pri­marily by the three regions in the DNA:

  1. a promoter
  2. the structural gene
  3. a terminator

Answer 9.
The bird is Darwin’s Finches. The name of Island is Galapagos Island, b. Darwin finches differed primarily in body size and beak shape as an adaptation to types of food available on islands. All these species evolved in different directions from the common ancestral form and adapted to new invaded habits and to modes of life necessary there. This phenomenon is called an adaptive radiation.

Answer 10.
The microbes can also be used as a source of energy. Very nice example of this is the production of biogas from the dung of cattle in the gobar gas plants by the microbes called methanogens.

Answer 11.
Bacterial diseases: Typhoid, pneumonia, diphtheria.
Protozoan diseases: Amoebiasis, malaria.

Answer 12.
Yes. The HIV infection is mainly by blood transfusion may take place due to poor monitoring.
Use of condoms during sexual contact will prevent from getting HIV. So alertness about infection of HIV will protect us from. getting AIDS.

Answer 14.
Ganja – from female inflorescence of the can­nabis plant.
Bhang- dried leaves, stems and flowering shoots of Cannabis plant.
Cannabis sativa plant produces Gannab- inside of which is used as medicine in Ayurveda and Unani. Morphine from a poppy plant used as a painkiller.

Answer 15.
Degeneracy of specificity. Some amino acids are coded by more than one codon, hence the code is degenerate.
b. UAA, UAG, UGA.

Answer 16.
a.  The strand with polarity 51-31 called cod­ing strand.
b. UCAGUACA
c.
1. If both strands act as a template, they would code for RNA molecule with dif­ferent sequences.
2. If the code for proteins, different amino acids will be formed. So more com­plications.
3. If two RNA molecule produced at the same time they would be complementary to each other would form double-stranded RNA. So translation affected.

Answer 17.
I cannot agree with Kumar because of the sex of progeny is not determined by parents but by chance by which the combining of gametes produced by parents. In birds, sex determination mechanism is as follows.

Answer 18.
a. Oogenesis.
b. Polar bodies
c. Polar body formed help to concentrate more cytoplasm in the ovum. It also helps to reduce the chromosome number into half in the egg.
