(v) A neurotransmitter stored at the terminal end of the axon. (b) Complete and rewrite the following by choosing the correct alternative from the bracket: [5] (i) The chromosomes arrange on the equatorial plane in ______ (Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase) (ii) ______ is a mixed gland having both exocrine and endocrine function (Adrenal, Pituitary, Thyroid, Pancreas). (iii) Grapes when placed in a strong sugar solution shrink because of ______ (endosmosis, exosmosis, turgidity, imbibitions). (iv) The chemical used to reduce transpiration is______ (cobalt chloride, silicon emulsion, KOH, calcium chloride). (v) _______ is responsible for guttation. (Osmotic pressure, Capillary force, Root pressure, Suction pressure) (c) Identify the Odd One and write the Category of the Rest (make two columns): [5] (i) Cerebrum, Ossicles, Cerebellum, Medulla Oblongata. (i) Centrosome, Cell membrane, Cell wall, Large vacuole. (ii) Cretinism, Myxedema, Simple goitre, Acromegaly. (iii) Osmosis, Imbibition, Active transport, Diffusion. (iv) Sodium chloride, Ammonia, Potassium chloride, Creatinine. (d) Correct the following statements by changing the underlined words: [5] (i) Several glucose molecules are transformed to produce one molecule of starch; this process is called phosphorylation. (ii) Presbyopia is a condition in which the lens turns opaque and the vision is cut down even to total blindness. (iii) Diapedesis is the process by which neutrophils engulf bacteria.
