  1. What are villi? What is their location and function?

Solution

Villi are the finger-like projections or outgrowth. They are present in the small intestine of our digestive system.

  1. Where is the bile produced? Which component of the food does it help to digest?

Solution:

Bile juice is produced in the liver, and it helps in the digestion of fats by breaking large fat globule into smaller ones.

  1. Name the type of carbohydrate that can be digested by ruminants but not by humans. Give the reason also.

Solution:

Cellulose is the carbohydrate that can be digested by ruminants but not by humans because humans lack cellulase enzyme required to digest the cellulose.

  1. Why do we get instant energy from glucose?

Solution:

Glucose is a simple sugar which is easily absorbed by the blood whereas other carbohydrates are first broken down into glucose and then absorbed; hence, glucose gives instant energy.

  1. Which part of the digestive canal is involved in:

(i) absorption of food ________________.

(ii) chewing of food ________________.

(iii) killing of bacteria ________________.

(iv) complete digestion of food ________________.

b) Stomach (ii) Storage of undigested food
c) Liver (iii) Saliva secretion
d) Rectum (iv) Acid release
e) Small intestine (v) Digestion is completed
f) Large intestine (vi) Absorption of water
(vii) Release of faeces

Solution:

Column-I Column-II
a) Salivary gland (iii) Saliva secretion
b) Stomach (iv) Acid release
c) Liver (i) Bile juice secretion
d) Rectum (ii) Storage of undigested food
