S1. Ans.(d)
Sol. Femur, or thighbone, is the largest bone in your body. The head of femur fits into your hip socket and the bottom end connects to knee. The two bones beneath knee that make up shin are your tibia and fibula. Your upper and lower legs are connected by a hinge joint.

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. The pulmonary artery carries deoxygenated blood from the right ventricle to the lungs.

S3. Ans.(d)
Sol. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun or sunbeds is the main cause of skin cancer.

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. Blue Whale is the largest known mammal

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. Ribo Nucleic Acid (RNA) is a polymeric molecule essential in various biological roles in coding, decoding, regulation, and expression of genes.

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. Mycoplasma is a genus of bacteria that lack a cell wall around their cell membrane. Without a cell wall, they are unaffected by many common antibiotics such as penicillin or other beta-lactam antibiotics that target cell wall synthesis.

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. The most prominent roles of mitochondria are to produce the energy currency of the cell, ATP (i.e., phosphorylation of ADP), through respiration, and to regulate cellular metabolism. This process is known as cellular respiration. It is for this reason that mitochondria are often referred to as the powerhouses of the cell.

S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. Pneumatophores are spongy erect roots extending above the surface of the water that facilitate the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide for the roots. Produced by a plant growing in water, pneumatophores are specialized root structures (above-ground spongy outgrowths of roots) that grow out from the water surface where inadequate oxygen required for normal respiration of the roots is present.

Sol. The blood groups O+ and O- are universal donors. The only difference is in the recipients to whom the blood is transfused; O+ can be transfused to any positive blood groups, whereas O- is transfused to both positive as well as negative blood groups.

Sol. Solanum is a large and diverse genus of flowering plants, which include food crops of high economic importance, the potato, brinjal and the tomato.
