Explain the phenomenon of regeneration with the help of a diagram. How is regeneration different from reproduction?
i) Regeneration is a type of asexual propagation of an organism.
ii) In this phenomenon, if a part of the organism is cut out from its body, then that part and the remaining body of the organism is able to grow into 2 new whole organisms.
iii) For example, Planaria is a type of organism that is capable of regeneration. When a planaria is cut into pieces, each piece is able to regenerate and grow into a complete new organism.
iv) Difference between regeneration and reproduction.

A Planaria worm is cut horizontally in the middle into two halves P and Q such that the part P contains the whole head of the worm. Another Planaria worm is cut vertically into two• halves R and S in such a way that both the cut pieces R and S contain half head each. Which of the cut pieces of the two Planaria worms could regenerate to form the complete respective worms ?
A. only P
B. only R and S
C. P, Rand S
D. P, Q, R and SLakhmir Singh & Manjit Kaur- Biology
A worm X found in freshwater and slow-moving streams has been accidently cut into three pieces. It was observed that in due course of time, each cut piece of the worm develops to become a complete worm by growing all the missing parts.
(a) Name the worm X which can exhibit this phenomenon of making complete worm from its cut body parts.
(b) Name another organism Y which possesses the same characteristic of growing fully from its cut body parts.
(c) What is the name of this process in which a complete organism is formed from its cut body part.
(d) State whether X and Y are unicellular and/or multicellular organisms.
