Justify the statement ‘Primary sex organs control the growth, function and maintenance of secondary sex organs’.
Primary sex organs are those organs of reproductive system, which directly participate in the process of reproduction. In humans males, the primary sex organs are testes, and in females, the primary sex organs are ovaries. Apart from producing sperms and ovum, these organs also release some reproductive hormones, namely, testosterone (from testis) and oestrogen and progesterone (from ovaries), which control the growth, function and maintenance of other reproductive system organs, like epididymis, vas deferens (in males) fallopian tube and uterus (in females), also called the secondary sex organs. Hence primary sex organs control the growth, function and maintenance of secondary sex organs.

The germ cell A produced by a person X is round in shape and it fuses with another germ cell B having a long tail and produced by a person Y. The fusion of A and B produces a new cell C. The cell C divides repeatedly and grows inside the organ D of person X to form E in which the body features of the unborn baby are not much developed. E grows further 'to form Fin which the various body features of the unborn baby (like hands, legs, head, eyes, and ears, etc.) can be identified. F grows further and ultimately forms a baby.
