VI. Very Short answer.

1. Classify the plants on the basis of their habitats.

Aquatic habitat

  • Fresh water habitat : Water hyacinth
  • Marine water habitat : Marine algae

Terrestial habitat

  • Forest habitat : Rubber trees
  • Grassland habitat : Grasses
  • Desert habitat : Cactus

2. Identify the desert plants from the following – Cactus, Hydrilla, Mango and Rose.

  • Cactus

3. Define the term habitat.

  • Each and every organism needs a place to live and reproduce. Such a dwelling place is called habitat.

4. Relate the terms leaves and photosynthesis.

  • The process of preparation of food with the help of chlorophyll in leaves, sunlight, carbondioxide and water is called photosynthesis.

VII. Give Short answer

1. Why do you call jasmine plants, a twiner?

  • Jasmine plant have weak stems.
  • They cannot stand straight on their own.
  • They must climb on any support to survive.
  • So, we call jasmine plant as a twiner.

2. Compare the tap root and fibrous root systems.

Taproot system

Fibrous root system

1. It consists of a single root called taproot,  which grows straight down into the ground.

It consists of roots arising from the base of the from the base of the stem

2. They are seen in Dicotyledonous plants.

They are seen in Monocotyledonous plants

Eg : Bean, Mango, Neem

Eg : Grass, Paddy, Maize

3. Compare the tap root and fibrous root systems.

Terrestrial habitat

Aquatic habitat

1. Habitats which include land, is called
Terrestrial habitat

Habitats which include area with

water is called Aquatic habitat.

Eg : Forest – Teak, Neem Grassland – Grasses Desert – Cactus, Aloevera

Eg: Fresh water habitat – Lotus, lily Marine habitat – Marine algae, Phyto-planktons

4. List out the plants present in your school garden.

  • Neem tree
  • Banyan tree

VIII. Answer in detail

1. Make a list of the functions of root and stem.

a) Functions of Root :

  • Root, fixes the plant to the soil.
  • Absorbs water and minerals from the soil.
  • Stores food in some plants.
  • Eg : Carrot and Beet root.

b) Functions of the stem :

The stem,

  • Supports the branches, leaves, flowers and fruits.
  • Transports water and minerals from roots to upper aerial plant parts.
  • Transports the prepared food from leaves to other parts through stem.
  • Stores food. eg : Sugarcane.
