Answer: 16
i. Controls breathing, heart rate and blood pressure. ii. Controls vomiting, coughing sneezing.
Question: 17
What are the function of spinal cord?
Answer: 17
i. It serves as a link between body parts and brain. ii. It acts as a coordinating centre, respobsible for simple reflexes.
Question: 18
Define Reflex arc.
Answer: 18
It is nerve pathway over which nerve impulse travels in a reflex action.
Question: 19
What is the function of lens of eye?
Answer: 19
If focuses light on retina and produce image an it.
Question: 20
What are sense organs? Give example.
Answer: 20
Organs which detect stimuli are called sense organs, e.g. eyes, ears, nose,etc.
Question: 21
What is spinal card?
Answer: 21
It is the continuation of medulla oblongata. It is a tubular bundle of nerves. It consists of outer white matter and central grey matter.
Question: 22
Define reflex action.
Answer: 22
The fast involuntary action in which spinal cord act as a coordinator.
Question: 23
What is choroid?
Answer: 23
It is middle layer of eye ball. It contains blood vessels and gives a dark colour it bends behind cornea to form iris.
Question: 24
What is optic disc or blind spot?
Answer: 24
Optic disc is a point on retina where the optic nerve centers retina. No photosensitive cells exist at this point, so it is called blind spot.
Question: 25
What is colorblindness?
Answer: 25
Cones recognize the primary colours are blue green and red Damages to these pigments result in colour blindness. This is genetic problem in which person is unable to distinguish between different colour.

the deficiency of vitamin A causes night blindness.
Question: 27
What is cellular respiration?
Answer: 27
Organism get the oxygen needed for cellular respiration from their environment and provide it to their cells.The carbon dionide produce during cellular respiration taken out of the cell and ultimately from the body.
