    Hints/Solutions to Half Yearly Examination

    Date : _________ Biology (Set-1)

    CLASS Duration: 3 Hr. Max. Marks : 70 XI

    Chapter 1 – The Living World 1. Taxon (pl. taxa) – It is a unit of classification, which represents a rank or category based on

    certain easily observable common characteristics. 2. Species is the lowest category and Kingdom is the highest taxonomic category. 3. (i) Group of related orders is class. (ii) Biological names are generally in Latin and written in italics. They are Latinised or derived

    from Latin irrespective of their origin. – Each organism is given only one name consisting of two words - Generic name and

    the specific epithet. – The first word in a biological name represents the genus while the second component

    denotes the specific epithet. – Both the words in a biological name, when handwritten, are separately underlined,

    or printed in italics to indicate their Latin origin. – The first word denoting the genus starts with a capital letter while the specific epithet

    starts with a small letter. – Name of the author appears after the specific epithet, i.e., at the end of the biological

    name and is written in an abbreviated form. 4. (i) Techniques, procedures and stored information that are useful in identification and

    classification of organisms are called as taxonomic aids. Ex – Herbarium, biological museum, zoological park and key.

    (ii) – Key is an taxonomical aid used for identification of plants and animals based on the similarities and dissimilarities.

    – It is a analytical device used by biologists for identifying unknown organisms. – The key consists of a series of choices, based on observed features of the organism. – A single pair of contrasting characters is called a couplet and each statement of a

    couplet is termed a lead. – It provides a choice between two opposite options (couplet), resulting in the

    acceptance of one and the rejection of the other. – By making the correct choice at each level of the key, one can eventually arrive at the

    name of the unknown organism. – Separate taxonomic keys are required for each taxonomic category such as family,

    genus and species for identification purposes.

    Chapter 2 – Biological Classification 5. It is an Dinoflagellates, which belongs to Kingdom Protista. 6. Neurospora. 7. Sexual reproduction in Fungi – It involves formation and union of two gametes or their nuclei.

    Sexual reproduction is absent in deuteromycetes. The various spores are produced in distinct structures called fruiting bodies. The sexual cycle involves the following three steps-:

    (i) Plasmogamy - Fusion of protoplasms between two motile or non-motile gametes called plasmogamy.

    (ii) Karyogamy - Fusion of two nuclei called karyogamy.

    – In some fungi the fusion of two haploid cells immediately results in diploid cells (2n). However, in other fungi (ascomycetes and basidiomycetes), an intervening dika
