Short-Answer Questions

Question. State the importance of variations.
Answer : Variations are the differences in the characters among the individuals of a species. Variations enable the organisms to adapt themselves in the changing environmental conditions.
Variations form the raw materials for evolution and formation of new species.

Question. Define Genetics. What did Mendel’s contribution to genetics?
Answer : The science of heredity and variation is called Genetics.
Mendel conducted breeding experiments in a plant called garden pea (pisum sativum) with contrasting pair of characters, found that only one character of the pairs appeared in the first generation but both the characters appeared in the subsequent generation.
On the basis of these results of his experiments he put forth the various principals of inheritance. He also suggested that each character is controlled by a pair of factors which are now called as genes.

Question. What is environmental selection?
Answer : It is the selection within a population resulting from the influence exerted by the environment. It leads to a change in the composition of genes within a population.

Question. Which of the following are homologous and analogous organs?
(a) Wings of birds and insects. (b) Flippers of whale and fins of fish.
(c) Flippers of whale and wings of bat. (d) Our teeth and elephants tusks.
(e) Potato and runners of grass.
Answer : (a) — Analogous organs
(b) — Analogous organs
(c) — Homologous organs
(d) — Homologous organs
(e) — Homologous organs

Question. What is speciation? How does it occur?
Answer : Formation of new species from the existing ones over the period of time is called speciation.
Speciation takes place due to gene flow, genetic drift, reproductive isolation and finally natural selection.

Question. How do traits or characters get expressed?
Answer : Genes control the expression of a trait or a character in an organism. Genes produces proteins. The proteins act as enzymes which can directly control a character or help in the formation of a hormone which can control the expression of a particular character. 

Question. Describe briefly four ways in which individual with a particular trait may increase in population.
Answer : Four ways in which individual with a particular trait may increase in population are:
(a) Variations that occur in species helps in the survival of individuals.
(b) Organisms when show genetic drift which cope them to survive in the given environment.
(c) Adaptation and natural selection.
(d) Sexual reproduction results in variation.

Question. What is genetic drift?
Answer : Accidents in small populations can change the frequency of some genes in a population even if they give no survival advantage. This is genetic drift, which provides diversity without any adaptations. So, it is the random change in the frequency of alleles in a population over successive generation.

Question. How do we know how old fossils are?
Answer : We can find the relative of the fossil by the depth at which the fossil is found. The ones that are found near the surface are more recent than the fossils found in the deeper layer. The second way of dating fossils in detecting the ratios of different isotopes of the same element in the fossils material.

Question. Which of the following combinations of sex chromosomes produces a male or a female child—XX or XY?
Answer : XX combination produces a female child while the XY combination produces a male child.

Question. What is phylogeny and molecular phylogeny?
Answer : Phylogeny is the evolutionary history of an organism.
Molecular phylogeny traces the evolutionary relationships by comparing the differences in the DNA of different organisms.

Question. What is natural selection?
Answer : According to Darwin, natural selection is the process which brings about evolution of new species of plants and animals.
It consists of the following processes:
(i) He noted that the size of population tends to remain constant despite the fact that more offsprings are produced than needed.
(ii) Variations provide adaptations.
(iii) The best adopted survive in the changing environment (survival of the fittest).
(iv) Nature selects the best organisms with better adaptations and after many generations new species are formed (natural selection).

Question. What are fossils? What do they tell about the process of evolution?
Answer : Fossils are preserved traces or remains of living organism of geological past. Fossils help to trace the racial history of organisms. Fossils found closer to the surface are more recent than fossils found in the deepest layers.

Question. What term did Mendel use for genes? Where are the genes located?
Answer : Mendel used the term ‘factors’ for genes. Genes are portions of DNA which code for a single protein.

Question. Define variation in relation to a species: Why is variation beneficial is the species.
Answer : Variations are differences that occur between the organisms of the same species in spite of the same basic features. Variation in species promotes survival of an organism in changing environment by increasing the adaptability.

Question. ‘‘Variations that confer an advantage to an individual organism only will survive in population’’. Justify.
Answer : Variation is the difference in the characters or traits among the individuals of a species.
Sexual reproduction of organisms produces variation. The variations produced in organisms during successive generations gets accumulated in the organism. The significance of variations shows up only if it continues to be inherited by the offspring for several generation.

Heredity And Evolution

Question. a. What function is performed by human arms, forelimbs of dog and forelimbs of whales?
b. Which type of organs are these?
c. Why do we call them so?
Answer a. Human arm : holding things Forelimbs of dog : running Forelimbs of whales : paddles
b. Homologous,
c. Same origin, different functions.

Question. How green beetles had colour advantage over red beetles? Explain.
Answer Green beetle merge with green background of vegetation which give survival advantage to a species from elimination.
a. in the population of beetles, the new variation (green colour) get survival benefit / advantage to green beetles whereas other (red) perishes.
b. It is because of Natural selection — some variations are advantageous for an organism to adapt better in the prevailing conditions of habitat. It makes it easy to obtain food and mating partner by them.In this manner they are able to propagate more,transmitting their genes to next generation and producing more individuals with similar genetic

Question.What is DNA copying? State its importance.
Answer A process where a DNA molecule produces two similar copies of itself in a reproducing cell.
Importance -
a. It makes possible the transmission of characters from parents to the next generation.
b. It causes variation in the population.the same species.
c. Inheritance from the previous generation provides both a common basic body design, and subtle changes in it, for the next generation. So the changes keep on accumulating generations after generations.

Question. In a pea plant, find the contrasting trait if:
a. the position of flower is terminal.
b. the flower is white in colour.
c. shape of pod is constricted.
Answer a. Axial position of flower.
b. Purple colour of flower.
c. Inflated shape.

Question. Explain with an example for each, how the following provides evidences in favour of evolution in organisms:
a. Homologous organs
b. Analogous organs
c. Fossils
Answer a. Homologous organs - study of homologous organs suggests that the organs having same structure but performing different functions have evolved from a common ancestor. Example: forelimbs of a frog, lizard, bird and man.
b. Analogous organs - show adoption of organs for common use. Example: wings of butterfly and wings of bat.
c. Fossils - provide the missing links between two species. Example: - Archeopteryx / fossils of some dinosaurs with feathers

Question.a. During evolution some changes may have occurred for a reason but proved to be useful for some other purpose. Cite one such example.
b. Has the evolutionary changes took place all of sudden. Elaborate.
Answer a. Evolutions of feathers: Functional Advantage: A change that is useful for one property to start with can become useful later for quite a different function. Feathers, for example, can start out as providing insulation in cold weather. But later,they might become useful for flight. In fact, some dinosaurs had feathers, although they could not fly using the feathers. Birds seem to have later adapted the feathers to flight. This, means that birds are very closely related to reptiles, since dinosaurs were reptiles. Birds have evolved from reptile.
b. Evolution changes has not took place all of sudden. Evolution takes place in stages, i.e., bit by bit over generations. Even an intermediate stage, such as a rudimentary eye, can be useful to some extent. This might be enough to give a fitness advantage. In fact, the eye seems to be a very popular adaptation.
Insects have them, so does an octopus, and so do vertebrates. And the structure of the eye in each of these organisms is different - enough for them to have separate evolutionary origins

Question.“We cannot pass on to our progeny the experiences and qualifications earned during our lifetime”. Justify the statement giving reason and examples.
Answer Acquiring knowledge / skill in one’s lifetime such as learning dance, music, physical fitness or any other suitable example.
a. Such characters / experiences acquired during one’s lifetime do not bring any change in the DNA of the reproducing c$ll/germ cell.
b. Only germ cells are responsible for passing on the characters from the parents to the progeny.

Question. Explain the term homologous organ with an example.
Answer The organs which have similar basic structure and mode of origin but perform different functions in different animals are called homologous organs. E.g.,
Forelimbs of amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. Homologous organs give an evidence of common ancestory and evolutionary relationship between apparently different species.

Question. a. Insects, octopus and vertebrates all have eyes. Can we group eyes of these animals together to establish a common evolutionary origin? Justify your answer.
b. “Birds have evolved from reptiles”. State evidence to prove the statement.
Answer a. No, the structure of the eye in each of the organisms is different.
b. Fossils of certain dinosaurs/reptiles show imprints of feathers along with their bones but they could not fly presumably using the feathers for insulation.
Later they developed / evolved and adapted feathers for flight, thus becoming the ancestors of present day birds.

Question.An organ like a wing in birds are an advantage to an organism. Did they appear in different stages or were formed due to a single sudden change in them.
Answer Feathers in dinosaur were long and they could not fly using feathers. It gave them protection from cold weather and warmth. Birds seem to have later adapted the feathers to flight.

Question. a. “Chromosomes are heredity carriers.” Why do we say so?
b. Which vital function is not controlled by autosomes?
Answer a. Chromosomes are made-up of DNA. Genes are located on the chromosomes. It is the DNA copy which transfers from both the parents to their offspring. Therefore, chromosomes made-up of DNA and containing genes are said to be the heredity carriers.
b. Sex of the child is not controlled by autosomes.

Question.What are chromosomes ? Explain how in sexually reproducing organisms the number of chromosomes in the progeny is maintained.
Answer Chromosomes - Thread like structures made up of DNA found in the nucleus. The original number of chromosomes becomes half during gamete formation.
Hence, when the gametes combine, the original number of chromosomes gets restored in the progeny. (or same thing explained in the form of a flow chart).

Question.With the help of suitable examples, explain why certain traits cannot be passed on to the next generation. What are such traits called?
Answer : Example: Acquiring knowledge by reading/change in body weight. Reason: Because such changes do not bring any change in the DNA of the germ cells/ such changes take place only in the non-reproductive tissues. Traits: Acquired traits.

Question. An angiosperm plant having red coloured flowers when crossed with the other having the same colour produced 40 progenies, out of which 30 plants were with red coloured flowers, 10 plants were with white coloured flowers. Find out:
a. What is the possible genotype of parent plants?
b. Which trait is dominant and recessive?
c. What is this cross called as and what is its phenotypic ratio?
Answer a. Rr and Rr.
b. Red colour of flowers is the dominant trait while white colour is the recessive trait.
c. Monohybrid cross, phenotypic ratio is 3 : 1.

Question. How are fossils formed? Describe, in brief, two methods of determining the age of fossils.
Answer Fossils are formed when dead organisms are not completely decomposed. The organisms may get trapped in resins of tree, lava of volcanoes or hot mud which when hardens, retains the animal’s parts thus,forming fossils.
Two methods of determining the age of fossils:
a. Relative method: By estimating the age of the layer of earth’s crust where the fossil is found. Fossils near the surface are recent and those in the
deeper layers are more ancient.
b. Radio-carbon dating method: By detecting the ratios of different isotopes of carbon in the fossils.
Fossils help in determining the connecting links between various groups and their origin from their primitive ones, e.g., Archaeoptyrx.

a. What might have caused Rekha’s colour to be dark?
b. Is it possible that all the family members of Rekha’s family were dark?
c. What value do you learn?
Answer a. Her dark colour may be due to the genetic inheritance.
b. All may not be dark, depending upon the genes inherited and the environmental conditions that each one of them living in.
c. Awareness, logical thinking, scientific temperament.

Question. If a population of red beetles, living on green bushes,is being eaten by crows. During sexual reproduction,
a green beetle is found in progeny:
a. What is the future of new trait?
b. Will it survive in the new habitat?
a. Among progeny, when green beetle is found, it escaped attack of crows as it merged with green colour. Green beetles increased, red decreased.
b. New trait will survive.

Question. Clones of sheep are carbon copy of each other except physical health. What kind of variation is it?

Question. If a pure tall pea plant is crossed with a pure dwarf pea plant, then in F1 generation only tall plants appear. What happens to the traits of the dwarf plant?
Answer Although in F1 generation only the tall plants appear, both the tallness and dwarfness traits are inherited in the F1 plants but as the tallness trait is dominant, it is expressed, whereas,

Question. The gene type of green stemmed tomato plants is denoted as GG and that of purple stemmed tomato plants as gg. What colour of stem would you expect in F1 progeny when these two are crossed?
Answer As green stem is a dominant trait as compared to purple stem, the colour of stem would be green in F1 progeny.

Question. All the human races like Africans, Asians, Europeans, Americans and others might have evolved from a common ancestor. Provide a few evidences in support of this view. 
Answer All human beings have evolved from a common ancestor as they have the maximum number of common characters. Moreover, all human beings can interbreed with each other, which shows that all of them belong to the same species. Some of the common characters of all human beings are:
(1) Common body plan, structure, physiology and metabolism.
(2) All of them have a constant chromosome number i.e., 46.
(3) Their genetic makeup is also similar i.e., almost 99.9% DNA is nearly the same in all humans.
(4) All the humans; can freely inter-breed to produce offspring. All these evidences clearly indicate that all of us, whether Africans, Asians, Europeans, Americans, etc., have evolved from a common ancestor.

Question. (A) What is variation? How is variation created in a population? How does the creation of variation in a species promote survival?
(B) Explain how, offspring and parents of organisms reproducing sexually have the same number of chromosomes.
Answer (A) The differences in characteristics between individuals of the same species is called variation. Variations arise in organisms during the process of copying the DNA due to which the DNA copies will be similar but not identical to the original. Variation is created in a population consisting of sexually reproducing organisms as

Question. Name the plant Mendel used for his experiment. What type of progeny was obtained by Mendel in F1 and F2 generation when he crossed the tall and short plants? Write the ratio he obtained in F2 generation plants.
Answer Mendel used Pisum sativum (Pea plant) for his experiment.
Mendel took a tall pea (TT) plant and a short pea plant (tt) plant. When he crossed both, in F1 generation all plants were tall. When F1 progeny was self pollinated, all plants obtained in F2 generation were not tall. Instead 3 tall and I short pea plant was obtained.

Class 10 Science Heredity_5



Question. What will be the sex of a baby if sperm carrying X chromosome fertilizes egg in human beings. Why?
Answer : It will be a baby girl because fusion of gametes having X chromosomes leads to homozygous condition producing zygote with XX composition.

Question.How did Mendel explain that it is possible that a trait is inherited but not expressed in an Organism?
Answer (i)In Mendel’s experiment, when pure tall pea plants were crossed with pure dwarf pea plants, only tall pea plants were obtained in F1 generation.
(ii)On self pollination the pea plants of F1 generation both tall and dwarf pea plants were obtained in F2 generation.
(iii)Reappearance of the dwarf pea plants in F2 generation proves that the dwarf trait was inherited but not expressed in F1 generation.

Class 10 Science Heredity_6


Question. Feather imprints were preserved along the dinosaur’s bones but dinosaurs could not fly. What was the significance of feathers in reptiles and later on for other species?

Question. Wild cabbage was converted into number of variants like cauliflower, broccoli and cabbage by man. What is this process known as? Does it play an important role in organic evolution? 
Answer This process is known as artificial selection. It plays an important role in organic evolution because it is parallel to natural selection. It helps to produce new species having useful traits in less time.

Question. Which of the following is not a direct conclusion that can be drawn from Mendel’s Experiment?
(a)Only one parental trait is expressed
(b)Two copies of each trait is inherited in sexually reproducing organism
(c)For recessive trait to be expressed, both copies should be identical
(d)Natural selection can alter frequency of an inherited trait
Answer Correct option (d)

Question. How are variant genotypes produced? 
Answer  Variant genotypes can be produced by:-
1. Mutation in genes and chromosomes.
2. Recombination of genes.
3. Hybridization of genes.

Question. Why is variation important for a species?
Answer Survival of species over time.

Question. Can geographical isolation lead to speciation? How? 
Answer Yes, geographical isolation can lead to speciation. Due to geographical isolation, the members of two sub groups may not be able to interbreed as a result of genetic drift. Natural selection also operates differently in these subgroups. This leads to speciation.
