Passage Based Questions
28. (A) Complete the given passage with appropriate words or phrases.
Each thin filament is made of two (i) helically wound to each other. Each (ii) is a polymer of monomeric (iii). Two filaments of another protein (iv) also run close to (iv) throughout its length. A complex protein (vi) is distributed at regular intervals on the (vii) . (B) Read the passage and correct the errors, wherever present.
Densely stained M line bisects the I bands. A sarcomere has, therefore, one I band and two half A bands. The central part of each A band has a variable Z line. T tubules of mammalian striated muscle fibers occur at the junction of M and I band.
Assertion & Reason
In each of the following questions, a statement of Assertion is given and a corresponding statement of Reason is given just below it. Of the statements, mark the correct answer as :
(a) if both A and R are true and R is the correct explanation of A
(b) if both A and R are true but R is not the correct explanation of A
(c) if A is true but R is false
(d) if both A and R are false.
29. Assertion : Lifting of a book involves the flexing movement over elbow joint and represents the second order lever.
Reason : Here, the end of the arm with the load functions as the force, while the elbow joint functions as a fulcrum and triceps attached to ulna as resistance.
30. Assertion: Vertebrae in birds are heterocoelous.
Reason : They are saddle shaped with concavo-convex centra.
31. Assertion : Spongy bone has irregular, intersecting plates or trabeculae forming the matrix.
Reason : Spongy bone is richly vascularised.
32. Assertion : The two bones of fore or lower arm are radius and ulna.
Reason : Both bones are curved, with radius towards the side of the little finger, and ulna towards the thumb.
33. Assertion : Pelvic girdle is an irregular trough shaped bony complex consisting of two halves called innominates or coxals.
Reason : Innominates are joined together by freely movable pubic symphysis.
34. Assertion : Humerus and femur develop through calcification or ossification of cartilage.
Reason : Parietal and frontal develop in the dermis of skin as thin plates.
35. Assertion : Deficiency of dystrophin protein causes muscular dystrophy.
Reason : Dystrophin relays nerve impulses to the endoplasmic reticulum for release of Ca2+.
36. Assertion : White muscle fibres are thick, broad and perform strenuous contractions.
Reason : They contain large number of mitochondria.
