Nutrition of Bacteria
Q. Anoxygenic phototrophic bacteria do not utilize:
How do bacteria obtain their nourishment ?
The interior of a cow-dung pile kept for a few days is quite warm. This is mostly because
cellulose present in cow dung is a good insulator
dung is dark and absorbs a lot of heat
undigested material released heat due to oxidation by air
bacterial metabolism inside the dung releases heat
Q. The Sun is the sole source of energy for all life on Earth.

- Fungi and plants
- Protista and Animalia
- Animalia and Mogna
- Monera and fungi

- A-1, B-3, C-2, D-4
- A-1, B-3, C-4, D-2
- A-3, B-1, C-2, D-4
- A-4, B-3, C-2, D-1
Q. The main difference between photosynthetic and chemosynthetic bacteria is that:
- Water is used by photosynthetic bacteria whereas it is rejected by chemosynthetic bacteria
- Photosynthetic bacteria are seen as parasites within green plant cells whereas chemosynthetic bacteria are seen as saprophytes on other decaying food substances
- Photosynthetic bacteria are seen in green plants whereas chemosynthetic bacteria are seen in chemical substance
- Energy from sunlight is used in photosynthetic bacteria while in chemosynthetic bacteria energy is used by the oxidation of inorganic substances
