IGCSE Biology Paper-1: Specimen Questions with Answers 202 - 203 of 208

Question 202

Question

MCQ▾

The diagram shows different type of venation in monocot and dicot leaf.

Manner, Dicots

What does P and Q represent?

Choices

Choice (4)

a.

P-reticulate venation, Q-reticulate venation

b.

P-reticulate venation, Q-parallel venation

c.

P-parallel venation, Q-parallel venation

d.

P-parallel venation, Q-reticulate venation

Answer

d.

Explanation

Venation is the arrangement of the veins and the veinlets in a leaf. It is of two types:

  • Reticulate Venation:- The veins are arranged in a net like manner, e. g. , Dicots.
  • Parallel Venation:- The veins are arranged parallel to each other, e. g. , Monocots.
Manner, Dicots

Question 203

Question

MCQ▾

The diagram of glycogen which is storage carbohydrate in animals is shown.

Structure Shows Glucose

What X represents which is a monomer unit?

Choices

Choice (4)

a.

Glucose

b.

Fructose

c.

Starch

d.

Lactose

Answer

a.

Explanation

Polysaccharides

  • They are formed by joining of Monosaccharides (Monomers) by Glycosidic bonds between 1 - 4 carbon atoms. (In a polysaccharide chain the right end is called ‘reducing end’ and the left end is called non-reducing end)
  • They are non-reducing and mostly insoluble in water.

Types of Polysaccharides

  • Storage polysaccharides – e. g. Glycogen and Starch
  • Structural polysaccharides – e. g. Cellulose and Chitin

Glycogen

It is present in animals (also called animal starch) . It is a branched chain compd. and has about 30 α-glucose units. It gives ‘red colour’ with iodine solution.
