Que.1. How is it possible to control fertilization ?

Write its significance.(mp 2006 Set C)

Ans. These two methods to control fertilization. 

  1. Increase in population can be chacked .

  • The pollen grains of the flower reach to thew stigma of the same flowert.
  • No medium is required for the transfer of pollen grains.

Cross pollination:

  1.  The process may occur in both unisexual and bisexual flowers.
  2. The pollen grains fall on the stigma of the other flower but of the same species.

Ans. Following are various types of asexual reproduction in plants.

  1. Fission: some organisms on maturity split into two or more than two parts and each part is developed into offespring. This process is called fission.
  2. Budding: it is the type of asexual reproduction in which a new organism develops from an out growth or bud due to cell division at one particular site.
  3. parthenogenesis: The process in which young ones are produce from female gametes or egg cells without the process of fertilization is called parthenogenesis.

Q.2. write down the differences between sexual and asexual reproduction.
Ans. Differences between sexual and asexual reproduction :

  3. It occurs almost in all types of animals.
  4. fertilization takes place.

Asexual reproduction : 

  1.  Only one individual is required for this reproduction.
  2. Offspring are genetically same as that of patent organism.
  3. it occurs only in invertebrates and in lower chordates.
  4. fertilization is absent.
