1. Name the tissue that stores fat in our body.
Ans: Adipose Tissue found below the skin and between internal organs
2. Name the tissue which forms the lining of kidney tubules and ducts of salivary glands.
Ans: Simple cuboidal epithelium Tissue
3. Name the fibrous tissue with great strength but limited flexibility.
Ans: Tendon [A tendon is a fibrous connective tissue which attaches muscle to bone]
4. What do you mean by glandular epithelium?
Ans: Glandular Epithelium is kind of animal Epithelium tissue composed of cells that are specialized to produce and secrete substances into ducts or into body fluids.
5. Where is cuboidal epithelium found?
Ans: cuboidal epithelium is found in kidney tubules, thyroid vesicles & in glands (salivary glands, sweat glands).
6. Which tissue is responsible for movement in our body?
Ans: Movements are brought about in our body with the help of muscular tissues
7. Where is involuntary muscles found in our body?
Ans: Involuntary muscles are found in the walls of stomach, intestine, urinary bladder, bronchi, iris of eye and heart.
8. Name the tissue by which two bones can be connected with each other
Ans: The bones at a joint are held together by strong bands of tissue called ligaments which allow the bones to move.
9.Name the tissue found in the iris of our eye.
Ans: Non striated muscles tissue
10. What is the function of connective tissue?
Ans: connective tissue provide support to different organs & keeping them in place
11.Name the connective tissue which helps in repair of tissues. State where this tissue is found.
Ans: The Areolar connective tissue helps in the repair of tissues. Areolar connective is found between the skin and muscle cells, around blood vessel and nerves, in the bone marrow and space inside the organs. It consists of macrophages, fibroblast, collagen fiber and mast cells. These fibres provide support and strength to the organs
12. Draw diagram of a neuron showing nucleus and cell body
13. Name the tissue that smoothen bone surfaces at joints. Describe its structure with the help of a diagram.
Ans: Cartilage is a tough, elastic, fibrous connective tissue found in various parts of the body, such as the joints, outer ear, and larynx.It smoothens the bones surfaces.
14. Give two differences between tendon and ligament
1. They attach skeletal muscle to bone and are inextensible.
2. These are strong, fibrous and very dense connective tissues which have parallel bundles of collgen fibres.
3. In between bundles flat elongated tendon cells are present.
1. These connect two bones and held then in position and can be pulled or stretched.
2. These are strong, dense connective tissue, fibres arranged devilry, mainly of elastin fibres.
3. These cells lie between the fibres.
15. (a) State two important functions of areolar tissue.
(b) Why are skeletal muscles known as striated muscles? [2010 (T-I)]
Ans: (a) Areolar connective tissue is found between the skin and muscles, around blood vessels and nerves and in the bone marrow. It supports internal organs and helps in repair of tissues.
(b) Skeletal muscles have alternate light and dark bands or striations when stained appropriately. So, they are called striated muscles.
16. Write any two points of difference between structure and location of striated and unstriated muscles.
17. Give two points of difference between striated and cardiac muscle with respect to structure and location.
18. Blood is considered to be a connective tissue. Give reason
Ans: Blood is considered a connective tissue for two basic reasons:
(a) embryologically, it has the same origin (mesodermal) as do the other connective tissue types and
(b) blood connects the body systems together bringing the needed oxygen, nutrients, hormones and other signaling molecules, and removing the wastes.
19. What is ligament? Which type of tissue ligament is?
Ans: Two bones can be connected to each other by another type of connective tissue called the ligament. This tissue is very elastic. It has considerable strength.
Ligament is a short band of tough, flexible fibrous connective tissue which connects two bones or cartilages or holds together a joint.
20. How does fluid connective tissue differ from other connective tissues?
Ans: Fluid connective tissue has a liquid matrix (plasma) like blood but other connective tissues except lymph have solid matrix.
