Multiple Choice Questions

1. The muscular tube through which stored urine is passed out of the body is called –

(a) kidney

(b) ureter

(c) urethra

(d) urinary bladder

Soln:

Answer is (c) urethra

Explanation:

Waste which is present in the blood has to be removed from the body. This is done by the blood capillaries in the kidneys. The wastes dissolved in water are removed as urine. From the kidneys, the urine goes into the urinary bladder through tube-like ureters. It is stored in the bladder and is passed out through the urinary opening at the end of a muscular tube called urethra . The kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra form the excretory system.

2.They are pipe-like, consisting of a group of specialized cells. They transport substances and form a two-way traffic in plants. Which of the following terms qualify for the features mentioned above?

(a) Xylem tissue

(b) Vascular tissue

(c) Root hairs

(d) Phloem tissue

Soln:

Answer is (d) Phloem tissue

Explanation:

Phloem tissue consists of a group of specialized cells. Sieve tubes are elongated tubular conducting channels of phloem through which food is transported. The contents of phloem can move in the upward as well as in the downward direction. Therefore, they form two-way traffic in plants.

3. The absorption of nutrients and exchange of respiratory gases between blood and tissues takes place in –

(a) veins

(b) arteries

(c) heart

(d) capillaries

Soln:

Answer is (d) capillaries

Explanation:

Capillaries are the extremely thin blood vessels where exchange of substances and absorption of nutrients take place. Their thin walls facilitate the exchange.

4. In which of the following parts of human body are sweat glands absent?

(a) Scalp

(b) Armpits

(c) Lips

(d) Palms

Soln:

Answer is (c) Lips

Explanation:

Sweat glands are responsible for the production of sweat. These glands are absent in lips hence lips don’t secrete sweat.

5. In a tall tree, which force is responsible for pulling water and minerals from the soil?

(a) Gravitational force

(b) Transportation force

(c) Suction force

(d) Conduction force

Soln:

Answer is (c) Suction force

Explanation:

Roots absorbs water and minerals from the soil continuously. Evaporation of water from leaves creates a suction force which causes the water to move upwards.

6. Aquatic animals like fish excrete their wastes in gaseous form as

(a) Oxygen

(b) Hydrogen

(c) Ammonia

(d) Nitrogen

Soln:

Answer is (c) Ammonia

Explanation:

Oxygen is expelled out by plants, Hydrogen is a cellular waste product, Nitrogen is excreted in the form of urea and the organisms which excrete urea is called as ureotelic organisms. Aquatic animals will excrete waste products in the form of ammonia gas which dissolves in water and these organisms are known as ammonotelic animals.

Very Short Answer Questions

7. Veins have valves which allow blood to flow only in one direction. Arteries do not have valves. Yet the blood flows in one direction only. Can you explain why?

Soln:

Arteries have thick elastic valves and in arteries blood flow rapidly at high pressure. Because of this blood flows in one direction only.

8. What is the special feature present in a human heart which does not allow mixing of blood when oxygen-rich and carbon dioxide-rich blood reach the heart?

Soln:

Human heart is four chambered hence oxygen-rich and carbon dioxide-rich will not mix when blood reach the heart.

9. Name the organ which is located in the chest cavity with its lower tip slightly tilted towards the left.

Soln:

Heart

11. Arrange the following statements in the correct order in which they occur during the formation and removal of urine in human beings.

(a) Ureters carry urine to the urinary bladder.

(b) Wastes dissolved in water is filtered out as urine in the kidneys.

(c) Urine stored in urinary bladder is passed out through the urinary opening at the end of the urethra.

(d) Blood containing useful and harmful substances reaches the kidneys for filtration.

(e) Useful substances are absorbed back into the blood.

Soln:

(d) Blood containing useful and harmful substances reaches the kidneys for filtration.

(e) Useful substances are absorbed back into the blood.

(b) Wastes dissolved in water is filtered out as urine in the kidneys.

(a) Ureters carry urine to the urinary bladder.

(c) Urine stored in urinary bladder is passed out through the urinary opening at the end of the urethra.

12. Paheli uprooted a rose plant from the soil. Most of the root tips, with root hairs got left behind in the soil. She planted it in a pot with new soil and watered it regularly. Will the plant grow or die? Give reason for your answer.

Soln:

Possible chances may take place

  • Without root hairs roots cannot absorb water and nutrients hence plant will die.
  • Stem of rose plant may grow into new plants, hence plant survives.
  • Rose plant may die when transferred to new type of soil.

13. (a) Name the only artery that carries carbon dioxide-rich blood.

(b) Why is it called an artery if it does not carry oxygen-rich blood?

Soln:

  1. Pulmonary artery
  2. It is called as artery because it carries blood away from the heart.

14. Boojho’s uncle was hospitalised and put on dialysis after a severe infection in both of his kidneys.

Soln:

Roots absorbs water and minerals from the soil continuously. Evaporation of water from leaves creates a suction force which causes the water to move upwards.
