(ii) for body building.
 (iii) To repair the broken-body of the body.

Q 2: Distinguish between a parasite and a saprotroph..
 (i) They get their food from other organisms.
 (ii) Parasites usually live on or above the body of the host.
 (i) Saprotroph beings get their nutrition from the living and rotten organic substances of living organisms. 
(II) Saprotroph bodies live on dead and rotting substances.

Q3.How would you test the presence of starch in leaves?
(i) By dropping the iodine billions droplets on the static, we can test the presence of the mand. 
(ii) When iodine comes in contact with bilion mand (starch), a dark blue color comes to nager.

Q4.Give a brief description of the process of synthesis of food in green plants.
(i) Patch synthesis in the plant is done by the process of photosynthesis. 
(ii) During the photosynthesis, chlorophyll cells of the husband synthesize carbon dioxide in the presence of sunlight and carbohydrate with water.

Q5.Show with the help of a sketch that the plants are the ultimate source of food.
Figure 1.2 is the basic source of plant.
