Answer key, Explanations and References

1. Ans. (c). Ser-His-Asp

2. Ans. (b). ATPase activity

3. Ans. (b). Chloramphenicol

4. Ans. (c). Somaclonal variation

5. Ans. (c). Anther / pollen culture

6. Ans. (d). Plasmodesmata

7. Ans. (a). Anthracosis

8. Ans. (a). Vincristine

9. Ans. (b). Apomixis

Apogamy: development of sporophyte from gamethophyte (remember the phrase apogamy = up on gametophate), such sporophytes will be haploids.

Apospory: development of gametophyte directly from any cells of sporophyte (remember the phrase apospory = up on sporophyte)

Apomixis: general term for vegetative reproduction in plants

Parthenogenesis: development of progenies from unfertilized eggs. Such individuals will be haploids, example: worker bees.

Parthenocarpy: development of fruits in plants without fertilization. Example: banana. Parthenocarpy can produce seedless fruits and hence have immense horticultural importance.

10. Ans. (b). Auxins

11. Ans. (c). Domain

12. Ans. (b). Orthologs

13. Ans. (b). Dam +

14. Ans. (b). E.coli

15. Ans. (c). DNA ligase
