Class 12 Biology Assignment for Reproduction In Organisms


Bulbils : These are small, fleshy buds which develop into new plants as in Agave.

Clone : A group of organism derived from a single individual and hence morphologically and genetically similar.

Embryogenesis : The process of development of embryo from zygote.

Gametogenesis: The process of formation of male and female gametes.

Isogamete : One of a pair of conjugating gametes. Juvenile Phase : It is the period of growth before maturity when sex organs are not functional.

Meiocytes : These are specialized cells of diploid organisms which undergo meiosis.

Pericarp : It is the protective covering of fruit, may be divided into epicarp, mesocarp and endocarp. Parthenogenesis : Development of an egg into an embryo without fertilisation.


1. Offsprings produced by asexual reproduction are referred to as clones. Why?

2. Name the most invasive aquatic plant weed which is called as ‘Terror of Bengal’.

3. How does Zygote usually differ from Zoospore in terms of ploidy?

4. Mention the main difference between the offspring produced by asexual reproduction and progeny produced by sexual reproduction.

5. Which characteristic property of Bryophyllum is exploited by gardeners and farmers?

6. Higher organism have resorted to sexual reproduction inspite of its complexity. Why?

7. Tapeworms posses both male and female reproductive organs. What is the name given to such organism? Give two more examples of such organisms.

9. Bryophytes and Pteridophytes produce a large number of male gametes but relatively very few female gametes. Why?

10. Mention the site of zygote formation in the ovule of a flowering plant. What happens to sepals, petals and stamens after fertilisation? State the fate of zygote, ovule and ovary in these plants.

11. Distinguish between gametogenesis and embryogenesis.
