What are sensory nerve?
Answer: 19
The nerve which contain only the axons of sensory neurons.

Answer: 20
In most plants the sporophyte generation is dominant. It is diploid (2N) and produced haploid(1N) Spore by meiosis.

Question: 23
What is Hypothalamus?
Answer: 23
The part of the forebrain below the thalamus control body temperature blood pressure and emotion.
Question: 24
What is seed coat? What is its role?
Answer: 24
Seed coat develops from the integument, originally surrounding the ovule, seed coat in mature seed may be a paper thin layer or thick and seed coat protects embryo from mechanical injury and from drying out.
Question: 25
How would you associated the role of vitamin?
Answer: 25
