G. Long Answer Questions:
1. Write the various steps involved in the production of silk cloth from silk moth.
Ans. a. Incubation: The silk moth eggs are warmed to a temperature suitable for
hatching. This is known as incubation.
b. Rearing: After hatching, the silkworms are fed on mulberry leaves for six weeks, and
the worms eat almost continuously and increase in size.
c. Spinning: Branches of trees or shrubs are placed in their rearing houses. The worms
climb these branches and make their cocoons out of one continuous thread.
d. Reeling: The cocoons are first boiled or treated in ovens, killing the insects by heat.
The silk fibre is then obtained from the cocoons by a delicate process known as reeling.
This fibre woven into cloth.

process of removing dirt, dust, and grease from the sheared hair is called scouring.
Grading : the wool is sorted on the basis of length, colour, texture
Dyeing: As the natural colour of fleece is white, brown, or black, the sheared wool is
dyed in different colours.
Drying : In this process, containers of wool are put through rollers to squeeze out as

E. Short Answer Type-I Questions:
1. What is the function of saliva?
Ans: The digestive functions of saliva include moistening food, and helping to create a
food bolus, so it can be swallowed easily.
Saliva contains the enzyme amylase, also called ptyalin, which is capable of breaking
down starch into simpler sugars such as maltose and dextrin that can be further broken
down in the small intestine
2. What is ingestion?

4. What happens to the undigested food in the body?
Ans: The undigested food passes to large intestine.Some water is absorbed and the semi
solid waste (feces) is egested through anus.
5. What do you understand by the term assimilation?
Ans: The process of producing energy from the absorbed food is known as assimilation
6. Where is liver located? Give its function.
Ans:liver lies in front of stomach. Liver secrate bile that is stored in gall bladder. It make
the digestion of fat faster.
Note: Bile juice contains no digestive enzymes, yet it is important for digestion. Bile juice
has bile pigments such as bilirubin and biliverdin. These break down large fat globules
into smaller globules so that the pancreatic enzymes can easily act on them. This process
is known as emulsification of fats.
F. Short Answer Type-Il Questions:
1. Why we cannot breathe and swallow at the same time?
Ans: Every time we swallow, the epiglottis closes the wind pipe .If we breathe and
swallow at the same time, food or water enters wind pipe and we chock and cough.

Ans: in small intestine Carbohydrates get converted into sugars. Proteins get converted
into amino acids. Fats get converted into fatty acids and glycerol.

(i) Incisors :- They help us in biting and cutting the food.
(ii) Canines : - They help us in piercing and tearing the pieces of meat.
(iii) Premolars:- They assist the molars by holding the food with their cusps and also
(iv) Molars : - They help us in chewing and grinding the food so that it can be swallowed
(b) What do we learn from our teeth that have different functions?
Ans: If we work united we will do any impossible work .
G. Long Answer Questions:
1. Briefly describe nutrition in Amoeba with the help of diagrams.
Ans: Amoeba takes in food by forming temporary finger-like projections called
pseudopodia. The pseudopodia fuse over the food particle forming a food vacuole. The
digestive enzymes from the surrounding cytoplasm enter into the food vacuole and
breakdown the food into small, water soluble molecules by chemical reactions. The
digested food from the food vacuole spreads into the whole of Amoeba cell and gets
absorbed in the cytoplasm. A part of absorbed food is used to obtain energy through
respiration and some is used for the growth of Amoeba cell. The undigested part of the
food is moved to the surface of Amoeba cell and egested (thrown out) by the rupture of
2. Describe the process of digestion in ruminants.
Ans: The stomach of a ruminant is divided into four chambers. As soon as the ruminant
swallows the food, it enters the first chamber called rumen where it gets partially
digested (converted to cud). From here, the food enters the second chamber from where
it again reaches the mouth for rumination, which is thorough chewing. The food is again
swallowed, and now it enters the third and the fourth chamber for digestion. From here,
it enters the small intestine for the absorption of nutrients.
3. What are liver and pancreas? Write their functions in detail.
Ans: liver and pancreas are organ that help in digestion of food.
Live produce bile juice that breaks down fats and stores some vitamins and minerals.
The pancreas has two main functions: an exocrine function that helps in digestion and
an endocrine function that regulates blood sugar.
Liver is the largest gland of the body. It is a reddish-brown gland situated on the right side of the upper part of the
Functions of liver are as follows:
(i) To secrete bile juice which helps in the emulsification of fats present in the food.
(ii) Detoxification- Conversion of toxic substances into non-toxic forms like conversion
of ammonia to urea which gets excreted in the urine.
(iii) Clearing the blood from drugs and other harmful substances.
(iv) Conversion of excess glucose into glycogen for storage (glycogen can later be
converted back to glucose to energy when body is in short of nutrients)
Pancreas is a organ located in the upper abdomen and adjacent to the small
intestine. It performs two main kind of functions in the body:
(i) Exocrine function: It helps in the digestion of food. It produces various enzymes such
as amylase, lipase and trypsin which helps to digest carbohydrate, fats and proteins
(ii) Endocrine function: It produces hormonal insulin and glucagon which regulate the
level of sugar present in the blood
H. HOTS (Higher Order Thinking Skills) Questions:
1. The bacteria present on uncleaned teeth convert the sugar in food into a substance 'X'
which causes tooth decay. Name the substance 'X'. Which part of the teeth does it affect?
Ans: Substance X is lactic acid which is formed in the mouth after we eat food
containing sugar. it affect enamel.
[ Note : Lactic acid lowers the pH in the mouth making it acidic. Our tooth enamel is
made up of calcium phosphate, which is the hardest material in our body, but even it
starts getting corroded when the pH in the mouth is lower than 5.5(Acidic)]
2. How is ruminant's stomach different from humans?
Ans: The stomach of a ruminant is divided into four chambers they are rumen,
reticulum, omasum, and abomasum. Human stomach is a single organ.

Heat the leaf in alcohol, as in the previous activity, and test for starch. Only the part of
the leaf which was exposed to sunlight will turn blue-black. This shows that sunlight is
necessary for photosynthesis.
