Nutrition in Plants Exercise Solutions :
(2) Distinguish between a parasite and a saprotroph.
- Parasite :
(i) They always live on another host
(ii) They get the food from the host while living with them
(iii) Example : Cuscuta , roundworm
- Saprtroph :
(i) They don’t harm the host simply absorb nutrients
(ii) They get the food from decaying or dead mater or things known as saprohtrophic nutrition
(iii) Example : fungi
(3) How would you test the presence of starch in leaves?
Take two potted plants of the same kind. Keep one in the dark for 72 hours and the other in sunlight Perform iodine test with the leaves of both the plants Record your results. Now leave the pot which was earlier kept in the dark, in the sunlight for 3 – 4 days and perform the iodine test again on its leaves. In the iodine test you have to just put the iodine solution on the leave
Observation : It is the final stage here the leaf fully changes the leaf gets the blue black colour which was kept in sunlight that shows that the starch was present in leaves
There will be change on the leaf kept in darkroom but not blue-black colour will be observed because it shows absence of starch
(6) Fill in the blanks :-
(a) Green plants are called ___ since they synthesise their own food.
(b) The food synthesised by plants is stored as ___
(c) In photosynthesis solar energy is absorbed by the pigment called ___
(d) During photosynthesis plants take in ___ and release ___ gas.
(a) → Autotrophs
(b) → Starch
(c) → Chlorophyll
(d) → Carbon dioxide and oxygen gas
(7) Name the following :
(i) A parasitic plant with yellow, slender and branched stem.
(ii) A plant that is partially autotrophic.
(iii) The pores through which leaves exchange gases.
(i) Cuscuta have Percy plant with Yellow, Slender and Branch Stem.
(ii) Pitcher plant is partially autotrophic.
(iii) The Name of pores through which leaves exchange gases is Stomata
(8) Tick the correct answer:
(a) Cuscuta is an example of:
Correct option – (ii)
Because as in depends on host it is a parasite
(b) The plant which traps and feeds on insects is:
(ii) china rose
(iv) pitcher plant
Correct option – (iii)
Because it is also known as partially autotrophic plant.
(10) Mark ‘T’ if the statement is true and ‘F’ if it is false:
(i) Carbon dioxide is released during photosynthesis.
(ii) Plants which synthesise their food are called saprotrophs.
(iii) The product of photosynthesis is not a protein.
(iv) Solar energy is converted into chemical energy during photosynthesis.
(i) → False
Because carbon dioxide is the main part in photosynthesis and it is not released.
(ii) → False
Because the plants which synthesis their food are called as autotrophs.
(iii) → True
(iv) → True
(11) Choose the correct option from the following:
Which part of the plant takes in carbon dioxide from the air for photosynthesis?
(i) Root hair
(iii) Leaf veins
Correct answer → (ii) Stomata
Because stomata is the the part in plant which are the small pores on the plants that takes in the carbon dioxide from the air for photosynthesis.
(12) Choose the correct option from the following : Plants take carbon dioxide from the atmosphere mainly through their:
Correct answer →(iv) Leaves
Because Leaves are used to take carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
