  4. Yeast lacks chlorophyll. [T]
  5. Reserve food material in fungi is starch. [F]
  6. Rod-shaped bacteria are called cocci. [F]
  7. Protozoans are eukaryotic organisms. [T]

III. Select the odd-one out in each of the following combinations. Give reasons in support your answer :

1. Yeast, Protozoa, Mushroom

Reason: Others belong to the same kingdom (fungi).

2. Moulds, Bacteria, Mushroom

Reason: Bacteria is the odd one because it is not under fungi group but moulds and mushroom are fungi.

3. Bacteria, Blue-green algae, Protozoa

(a) Bacterium (2) One-celled prokaryotic organism
(b) Fungus (4) A plant with nuclei but no chlorophyll

(d) Algae (3) Green autotrophic plants

VI. Answer the following questions :

Question 1 :- Why has Euglena been classified as a plant as well as an animal?

Answer: Euglena is a claimed to classified as a plant as well as an animal because it contains chloroplasts and obtains its food through photosynthesis.

Question 2 :- Who proposed the five kingdom classification ?

Answer: Robert Whittaker proposed the five kingdom classification of organisms.

Question 3 :- Name the five kingdom proposed in the five kingdom classification

Answer: Living things are divided into five kingdoms: animal, plant, fungi, protist and monera. Living things are divided into five kingdoms: animal, plant, fungi, protist and monera.

Question 4 :- Which of the following groups of organisms contain chlorophyll?

(a) Bacteria

(b) Fungi

(c) Algae

(d) Mosses

(e) Flowering Plants

Answer: (c) Algae,(d) Mosses,(e) Flowering Plants

Question 5 :- Give the important features of following kingdoms:

(a) Monera: They contain 70S ribosomes. The DNA is naked and is not bound by a nuclear membrane.

(b) Fungi: Fungi are eukaryotic, non-vascular, non-motile and heterotrophic organisms. They may be unicellular or filamentous.

(c) Protista: They are eukaryotic, which means they have a nucleus. Most have mitochondria. They can be parasites. They all prefer aquatic or moist environments.

(d) Plantae: Plants contain photosynthetic pigments called chlorophyll present in the plastids. These are multicellular eukaryotes.They make their own food and hence are called autotrophs

Question 6 :- Give the harmful and useful effects of fungi.

Answer: The harmful effect of fungi are that Some fungus can cause various plant diseases like red rot of sugarcane and powdery mildew in peas and Growth of fungus in food items can spoil the food.

The useful effect of fungi are  that they have the ability to transform nutrients in a way that makes them available for plants. Some fungi are decomposers which mean that they break down plant and animal debris, thus cycling nutrient and increasing their availability in the soil

Question 7 :- List three harmful and three useful effects of bacteria.

Answer: There are number of bacteria that causes various diseases to living organisms, such bacteria are referred to as harmful bacteria. diseases such as cholera, typhoid, pneumonia and tuberculosis etc. in human beings are caused by bacteria.

Some bacteria that are used as probiotics, or those living in human gut are useful bacteria. such as E coli, Streptomyces, lactobacillus etc. out of these E coli helps in the food digestion. lactobacillus is found in curd, and can ferment milk into cheese and yoghurt.

Question 8 :- Which bacteria help in curd making?

Answer: Lactobacillus bacteria are helpful in a formation of curd.

Question 9 :- Name a unicellular fungus.

Answer: The only unicellular fungi is Yeast.

Question 10 :- Define antibiotics.

Answer: Antibiotics are medicines that fight infections caused by bacteria in humans and animals by either killing the bacteria or making it difficult for the bacteria to grow and multiply.
