PREVIOUSWhen an insect sits on the flower of a plant then some particles A present in the top of little stalks in the flower attach to its body hair. When this insect now sits on the flower of another similar plant, then particles A attached to the hair of insect are put on the top of a flask-shaped organ at the centre of flower. The particle A grows a long tube B from the top of flask-shaped organ through which C moves down and reaches the bottom part of flask-shaped organ. Here C fuses with the nucleus of D contained in structure E. The fusion of C and D forms a new cell F which grows and develops into a seed of the plant.(a) What are particles A ? What is the process of transferring A from one flower to another flower of similar plant by the insect known as ?(b) What is the name of tube B?(c) What is C which moves down through the tube B?(d) Name D and E.(e) What is F ?NEXTX and Y are two human beings. The organ A in the reproductive system of X releases a mature gamete B once a month which goes into a tube-like structure C through a funnel-like opening. The organ D in the reproductive system of Y makes and releases gametes E which pass through a duct F and are introduced by an organ of Y, into the body of X. B and E fuse together in C to form a new cell G. The cell G divides repeatedly to form a ball of cells H which gets embedded in the lining of organ I of reproductive system of X where it grows and develops into a baby.(a) Name (i) organ A, and (ii) gamete B.(b) Write two names of tube-like structure C.(c) Name (i) organ D, and (ii) gamete E.(d) Write two names of duct F.(e) Name (i) cell G (ii) ball of cells H, and (iii) organ I.(f) Out of X and Y, which one is (i) male, and (ii) female ?
