Question 1.

Define the following terms:

(a) Seed

(b) Fruits

(c) Grain

(d) Dormancy

(e) Germination

Answer:

(a) Seed: A ripened ovule, which contains embryo and has capacity to develop into a new plant is called Seed.

(b) Fruits: Enlarged and ripened ovary is called Fruit.

(c) Grain: A fruit in which the fruit wall and the seed coat is fused to form a protective layer is called Grain.

(d) Dormancy: A period of rest when the embryo is inactive inside the seed, is called Dormancy.

(e) Germination: The process of formation of a seedling from embryo is called Germination.

Question 2.

What is the difference between an embryo and a seed?

Answer:

A seed is a mature ovule after fertilization. It contains a tiny living-plant called the embryo. The embryo within the seed remains in an inactive or dormant state, until it is exposed to favourable conditions, when it germinates.

Question 3.

Germinated grams are considered highly nutritive. What is the reason for this belief?

Answer:

Germinated grams are considered highly nutritive because the cotyledon of the seed absorbs food from the endosperm, making it nutritive. It is rich in starch and its outermost layer is rich in protein.

Question 4.

Why do we not use the terms maize fruit and maize seed? What do we say instead?

Answer:

A fruit is a fertilised ovary and a seed is a fertilized matured ovule which contains an embryo or a growing plant. Maize grain is actually a fruit in which the fruit wall and the seed coat are fused together to form a protective layer. Therefore, we do not use the terms maize fruit and maize seed. Instead, we call such fruits as grains.
