Q.3. A. Linear S.H.M is defined as the linear periodic motion of a body, in which the restoring force
(or acceleration) is always directed towards the mean position and its magnitude is directly
proportional to the displacement from the mean position. [1]

constant angular speed ‘’ in anticlockwise direction.
ii. At any instant t = 0, particle P has its projection at point M as shown in the

 a = 2x ….(3) [½]
Equation (3) represents acceleration of projection of P at time ‘t’.
From equation (3),
ax [ 2 = constant quantity]
ix. As acceleration of projection of P is directly proportional to its displacement and its
direction is opposite to that of displacement, thus projection of particle P performs
simple harmonic motion. But M is projection of particle P performing U.C.M. Hence,
S.H.M is the projection of U.C.M along a diameter of circle. [½]

iv. Surface wave propagation:
When the electromagnetic waves (radiowaves) from the transmitting antenna propagate
along the surface of the earth so as to reach the receiving antenna, the wave propagation is
called surface wave propagation (ground wave propagation).
Explanation:
a. Ground waves are the radiowaves which propagate along the surface of the earth.
b. The electromagnetic waves which are vertically polarised, can travel along the surface
of earth. The horizontal component of electric field in contact with earth is short
circuited. The electric field vector of the wave induces charge in the earth.
c. There is loss of power in a signal during its propagation on the surface of the earth due
to partial absorption of energy by ground. Loss of energy is also due to diffraction
effect. The absorption of energy is high for high frequency.
Hence ground wave propagation is suitable for low frequency and medium frequency.
d. Ground wave propagation is possible only when the transmitting and receiving antenna are
close to the earth’s surface. [2]

Q.7. A. Principle of transformer:
It is based on the principle of mutual induction i.e., whenever the magnetic flux linked with a
coil changes, an e.m.f. is induced in the neighbouring coil. [1]
Construction:
i. A transformer consists of two sets of coils P and S insulated from each other. The coil
P is called the primary coil and coil S is called the secondary coil.
ii. The two coils are wound separately on a laminated soft iron core.
iii. The a.c input voltage is applied across the primary and the induced output a.c voltage is
obtained across the secondary, which is used to drive current in the desired circuit.
iv. The two coils are electrically insulated from each other but they are magnetically
v. To minimise eddy currents, the soft iron core is laminated. [½]

Working:
i. When an alternating voltage is applied to the primary coil the current through the coil
goes on changing. Hence, the magnetic flux through the core also changes.
ii. As this changing magnetic flux is linked with both the coils, an e.m.f is induced in each
coil.
iii. The amount of the magnetic flux linked with the coil depends upon the number of turns
of the coil.
iv. Let, ‘’ be the magnetic flux linked per turn with both the coils at certain instant ‘t’.
v. Let ‘NP and ‘NS’ be the number of turns of primary and secondary coil,
NP = magnetic flux linked with the primary coil at certain instant ‘t’

Rh : Rheostat
E : Cell
K : Plug key

c. A cell of e.m.f ‘E’ is connected between points A and C of the wire in series with a
high resistance box.
d. The rheostat is used to adjust the deflection in the galvanometer to half of its maximum
value. Hence, this method is also called half current method or half scale method.
e. First the deflection in the galvanometer is adjusted at half of its original value and the
reading is noted. It acts as null position.
f. The value of R is adjusted, so that the galvanomter gives a fairly large deflection, i.e.,
full scale deflection.
If the jockey is touched to different points on the wire then galvanometer shows
increase or decrease in the deflection.
g. A point D is located on the wire so that when the jockey is touched at that point,
galvanometer shows the same deflection as before. It means that point D and B are at
the same potential, i.e., bridge is balanced. [½]

b. A frequency-determining network, (resonant tank circuit) which also works as feedback
network and transistor amplifier acts as element.
c. With enough feedback, the oscillations start as soon as the circuit is switched on.
d. With positive feedback, the output current of the amplifier will be in the right phase to
increase the alternating current in the resonant circuit.
e. The oscillations then built up in amplitude until the power losses in the circuit are equal
to the power that the amplifier can develop.
f. The natural frequency of the oscillator is close to the resonant frequency of the resonant
circuit. [1]

i. Consider a simple pendulum of mass ‘m’ and length ‘L’.
L = l + r,
where, l = length of string
ii. Let OA be the initial position of pendulum and OB, its instantaneous position when
the string makes an angle  with the vertical.
In displaced position, two forces are acting on the bob:
a. Gravitational force (weight) ‘mg’ in downward direction.
b. Tension T in the string.

Board Answer Paper : July 2016
iii. Weight ‘mg’ can be resolved into two rectangular components:
a. Radial component mg cos  along OB and
b. Tangential component mg sin  perpendicular to OB and directed towards
mean position. [1]
iv. mg cos  is balanced by tension T in the string, while mg sin  provides restoring force.
 F =  mg sin  [½]
where, negative sign shows that force and angular displacement are oppositely directed.
Hence, restoring force is proportional to sin  instead of . So, the resulting motion is

i. When the spray comb is maintained at high positive potential, it produces charges in its
vicinity. The positive charges get sprayed on the belt due to the repulsive action of comb
C1, which are carried upward by the moving belt. A comb C2, called collecting comb is
positioned near the upper end of the belt, such that the pointed ends touch the belt and the
other end is in contact with the inner surface of the metallic sphere S.
ii. The comb C2 collects the positive charge and transfers them to the metallic sphere. The
charge transferred by the comb C2 immediately moves on to the outer surface of the hollow
sphere.
iii. As the belt goes on moving, the accumulation of positive charge on the sphere also keeps on
taking place continuously and its potential rises considerably.
iv. With the increase of charge on the sphere, its leakage due to ionisation of surrounding air also
becomes faster. When the rate of loss of charge due to leakage becomes equal to the rate at
which the charge is transferred to the sphere, the potential of sphere becomes maximum.
v. The projectiles such as protons, deuterons etc. are introduced in the upper part of the
evacuated accelerator tube. They get accelerated in the downward direction along the length
of the tube and acquire very high energy. At the other end, they come out and hit the target
with large kinetic energy and bring about nuclear disintegration. [11/2]

Physics
Working:
a. A rectifier, which rectifies only one half cycle of each a.c input supply, is called a half
wave rectifier.
b. The circuit diagram is as shown in figure (a).
c. When a.c input is applied to a junction diode, it gets forward biased during one half
cycle and reverse biased during the next opposite half cycle.
d. The a.c supply is fed across the primary coil P1P2 of a step down transformer. The
secondary coil S1S2 of the transformer is connected to the junction diode D and a load
resistance RL. The output d.c. voltage is obtained across the load resistance RL. The
output d.c. voltage is given by Vo = Id  RL.
e. Suppose that during the first half of the input a.c voltage terminal S1 becomes positive
w.r.t. S2. Then, P region of diode D becomes positive w.r.t. N region. This makes the
junction diode forward biased, thus the conventional current flows in the direction of
f. During the negative half cycle the terminal S2 is at positive potential w.r.t. S1. Thus, P
region of diode D is negative w.r.t. N region. This makes the diode reverse biased.
Thus diode does not allow current through it and no current will flow through RL.
g. During the next half cycle, output is again obtained as the junction diode gets forward
biased. Thus, a half wave rectifier gives pulsating unidirectional and intermittent d.c
output voltage V across the load resistance RL. [1½]

Procedure:
i. A narrow vertical slit S is illuminated by a source of monochromatic light (S).
The biprism B is placed close to the slit S.
ii. When light from S falls on the refracting edge of the prism then due to refraction, two
virtual images S1 and S2 of the slit S are formed.
iii. These images are in the plane of the slit, quite close to each other and act as two
coherent sources of light.
iv. The waves from these sources interfere with each other and form interference fringes.

Board Answer Paper : July 2017
c. From output characteristics it is clear that:
1. When IB = 0, then IC is nearly zero. Thus the transistor is in cut off region.
2. For VCE < 0.3 V,
IC increases with VCE and can be controlled by VCE.
3. When VCE > VBE (0.7), C-E junction gets reverse biased and IC gets saturated. i.e.,
IC doesn’t depend on VCE but can be controlled by IB. In this case the transistor is in
active region. It has large current gain in this region.
4. When VCE < 0.2 V, both the junctions gets forward biased and IC no longer can be
controlled by IB. In this case relation between IC and IB gets lost.

W2 = Mass of solute in kg
W1 = Mass of solvent in kg
iii. a. Adiabatic process: The mathematical expression of first law of thermodynamics is

b. Isochoric process: The mathematical expression of first law of thermodynamics is
U = q + W (W =  pex V).
In isochoric process, V = 0, W = 0

vii. a. The enthalpy change that accompanies the conversion of one mole of solid directly into
its vapour at constant temperature and pressure is called its enthalpy of sublimation
(subH). [1]
b. Whether the conversion of solid to vapour takes place directly in one step or in two
steps (i.e., first melting of solid into liquid and then its vaporization), the enthalpy

b. A constituent particle present at a corner is shared by eight neighbouring unit cells. Its
contribution to a unit cell is only 1/8.
Thus, the number of atoms present at corners per unit cell
1
= 8 corner atoms  atom per unit cell = 1 [½]
8
c. A constituent particle present at the centre of a face is shared by two neighbouring unit
cells. Its contribution to a unit cell is only 1/2.
The number of atoms present at faces per unit cell
1
= 6 atoms at the faces  atom per unit cell = 3
2
d. The total number of atoms per unit cell = 1 + 3 = 4
Thus, a face-centred cubic unit cell has 4 atoms per unit cell. [½]
iv. Isolation method:
a. In the isolation method, the concentrations of all the reactants except one are made to
remain constant throughout the course of the reaction by taking them in large excess.
The dependence of rate on the concentration of the isolated species is experimentally
determined.
b. The experiment is repeated by isolating one of the reactants each time and determining
the rate law with respect to the isolated species.
c. Consider the reaction,
aA + bB  cC + dD [½]
The rate law has the form,
Rate = k[A]x[B]y [½]
d. In one of the experiment, A is isolated by making the initial concentration of B (i.e.,
[B]0) to remain constant throughout the course of the reaction (by taking it in large
excess).
Hence, the rate law is written as
rate = k[A]x  B0 = k[A]x (where, k = k  B0 )
y y

## The dependence of rate on [A] that is ‘x’ is found out. [½]

e. In another experiment, B is isolated by keeping initial concentration of A (i.e., [A]0)
constant throughout the course of the reaction (i.e., by taking it in large excess).
The rate law then becomes, Rate = k [A]0x [B]y = k [B]y (where, k = k [A]0x ).
The dependence of rate on B that is y is found out.
f. Thus, by knowing the values of x and y, the order of the reaction (x + y) and the rate
law can be determined. [½]

v. a. Galvanization:
1. The rusting of iron can be prevented by coating the metal surface with another metal
such as zinc, that is oxidized in preference to iron. This process is called galvanization.
2. If the zinc layer is scratched, even then it protects iron from corrosion as long as
Fe and Zn are in contact. If Fe is oxidized to Fe2+, then Zn immediately reduces
Fe2+ back to Fe. [1]
b. Passivation: The surface of metal is treated with strong oxidizing acid such as
concentrated nitric acid and a thin preventive layer of oxide is formed on the surface of
metal. Thus, the surface is made inactive. This is process is called as passivation. [1]

## Q.4. Answer any ONE of the following:

i. a. Third law of thermodynamics: The third law of thermodynamics states that, “The
entropy of a perfectly ordered crystalline substance is zero at absolute zero of
temperature”. [1]

## Applications of standard molar entropy:

1. S for a chemical reaction can be calculated by knowing the values of standard
molar entropy of all reactants and products in the reaction. It is obtained by
subtracting total standard molar entropy of all the reactants from those of all the
products. The entropy change for the reaction is thus given by,
ΔS = m S (products)  n S (reactants)
where, m and n are the coefficients of products and reactants respectively in the
balanced equation.
eg. aA + bB  cC + dD
ΔS is given by,
ΔS = ( cSC + dSD )  ( aSA + bSB )
2. The standard molar entropy is useful in comparing the entropies of different
substances under the same conditions of temperature and pressure.
The S values increase with increasing complexity of molecules.
eg. CH3COOH is more complex than CH3OH. Hence S of CH3COOH
(160 J K1 mol1) is larger than that of CH3OH (127 J K1 mol1)
The S values of the heavier substance are larger than those of the lighter
substance.
eg. For I(g), S = 180.7 J K1 mol1 whereas for F(g), S = 158.6 J K1 mol1.

b. 1. Due to greater electronegativity of O than S, H2O undergoes extensive
intermolecular H-bonding. As a result, H2O exists as an associated molecule in
which each O is tetrahedrally surrounded by four water molecules. Large amount
of energy is required to break these H-bonds. Therefore, H2O is a liquid at room
temperature. [1]
2. In contrast, H2S does not undergo H-bonding. It exists as discrete molecules
which are held together by weak van der Waals forces of attraction. To break
these forces of attraction, only a small amount of energy is required. Therefore,
H2S is a gas at room temperature. [1]

b. 1. Consider ‘n’ moles of an ideal gas placed in a cylinder fitted with weightless,
frictionless piston at a constant temperature ‘T’. If the gas expands isothermally
and reversibly from initial volume V1 to final volume V2 and if the expansion is
by a small volume ‘dV’, then opposing pressure ‘P’ decreases by a small amount
‘dP’ producing small work done ‘dW’. Now, the pressure (pex) will be ‘P – dP’.
2. This work done is given as:
Work done (dW) = pressure  change in volume
= (P  dP)  dV

iii. Aldol condensation (Self/Auto condensation):
a. Two molecules of an aldehyde or ketone (containing -H-atom) in the presence of
dilute basic solution of NaOH, KOH, Ba(OH)2, K2CO3 or Na2CO3 or dil.HCl undergo
addition reaction to give corresponding -hydroxyl aldehyde (aldol) or -hydroxyl
ketone (ketol). The reaction is called aldol condensation/self oxidation.
b. This is a nucleophilic addition of aldehydes (or ketones) in which -carbon of the first
molecule gets attached to carbonyl carbon of second molecule forming a new C  C
bond. The reaction is reversible but the equilibrium is established between reactants
and products.

Board Answer Paper : March 2017
c. Due to steric factors, yield of ketol is very poor as compared to that of aldol.
d. On heating, the aldol or ketol rapidly undergoes dehydration (in the presence of acid or
base) to yield corresponding -unsaturated aldehyde or ketone. This product is obtained
due to stabilization of newly formed C  C double bond via conjugation with carbonyl
group. (Explanation) [2]
eg. Aldehydes: When acetaldehyde is warmed with dil NaOH or Na2CO3 or K2CO3 or
dil. HCl, it gives acetaldol, (3-Hydroxybutanal), which on heating with acid or base, loses a
water molecule and gives crotonaldehyde.

i. a. Henry’s law states that “the solubility of a gas in liquid at constant temperature is
proportional to the pressure of the gas above the solution.” [1]
b. The solubility of a gas in a liquid decreases with increase in temperature.
Reason: According to Charles’ law, volume of a given mass of a gas increases with
increase in temperature. Therefore, volume of a given mass of dissolved gas in solution
also increases with increase in temperature, so that it becomes impossible for the
solvent in solution to accommodate gaseous solute in it and gas bubbles out. Hence,
solubility of gas in liquid decreases with increase in temperature. [1]

## Q.7. Answer any THREE of the following:

i. Ligands are classified as mono or unidentate, poly or multidentate and ambidentate ligands:
a. Mono or unidentate ligands: The ligand molecule or ion which has only one donor
atom or one point of attachment and can coordinate with the metal ion at only one site
in a complex is called unidentate or monodentate ligand.
eg. Cl, OH–, NH3, H2O, etc. (Explanation + Example) [1]

b. Poly or multidentate ligands: The ligand molecule or ion which has two or more
donor atoms or points of attachments and can be linked to the same metal in a complex
using two or more donating sites is called poly or multidentate ligands. Thus,
multiple sites of ligands are used in the coordination with metal. Based on the number
of donor atoms, polydentate ligands are further classified as bidentate, tridentate,
1. Bidentate ligands have two donor atoms.
eg. Ethylenediammine (en)
2. Tridentate ligands have three donor atoms.
eg. Diethylenetriammine (dien)
3. Tetradentate ligands have four donor atoms.
eg. Triethylenetetraammine (trien)
4. Hexadentate ligands have six donor atoms.
eg. Ethylenediamminetetraacetate (EDTA)
(Explanation + Examples) [1]

c. Ambidentate ligands: Ambidentate ligands are the ligands which have two or more
donor atoms capable of forming coordinate bonds; however only one donor atom is
utilized during complex formation.
eg. NO 2 group can form complexes by utilizing either N or O as donor atom, but not
both. This results in formation of either MNO2 or MONO complex
respectively.

Preparation of soaps:
1. By hydrolysis of fat using sodium or potassium hydroxide solution
(saponification):
When oils and fats are heated with solution of sodium hydroxide or potassium
hydroxide, they are hydrolysed to glycerol and sodium (or potassium) salt of fatty acid
(known as soap). This process is called saponification.

Shaded portion ABC is the feasible region whose vertices are A, B and C.
A is the point of intersection of the lines x = 3 and 2x + y = 7.
Putting x = 3 in 2x + y = 7, we get
2(3) + y = 7
 y=1
 A  (3, 1)
B is the point of intersection of the lines x = 3 and 2x + 3y = 15.
Putting x = 3 in 2x + 3y = 15, we get
2(3) + 3y = 15
 x=3

Hence, the original matrix is reduced to an upper triangular matrix.
 By equality of matrices, we get

x + 2y + 3z = 45 ....(i)
5y  10z = 120
i.e. y + 2z = 24 ....(ii) [1]
5z = 40 ....(iii)
i.e. z=8
Substituting z = 8 in equation (ii), we get
y + 2(8) = 24
 y=8
Substituting z = 8 and y = 8 in equation (i), we get
x + 2(8) + 3(8) = 45
 x + 16 + 24 = 45
 x=5
 x = 5, y = 8, z = 8 [1]
Thus, the cost of pencils is ` 5 per dozen, that of pens is ` 8 per dozen and that of erasers is ` 8

## iii. Let ax2 + 2hxy + by2 = 0 ….(i)

be a homogeneous equation of degree 2 in x and y.
Case I:
If b = 0 (i.e., a  0, h  0), then the equation (i) reduces to ax2 + 2hxy = 0
i.e., x(ax + 2hy) = 0
This represents two lines, x = 0 and ax + 2hy = 0, both passing through the origin.
Case II:
If a = 0 and b = 0 (i.e., h  0), then the equation (i) reduces to 2hxy = 0, i.e., xy = 0 which
represents the coordinate axes and they pass through the origin. [1]
Case III:
If b  0,
Multiplying both sides of equation (i) by b, we get
abx2 + 2hbxy + b2y2 = 0
 b2y2 + 2hbxy = abx2
To make L.H.S. a complete square, we add h2x2 on both the sides.

This is the joint equation of two lines
(by + hx) +  
h 2  ab x = 0

## and (by + hx)   h  ab  x = 0

i.e., h  h 2  ab  x + by = 0

and  h  h2  ab  x + by = 0

## These lines pass through the origin.

From the above three cases, we conclude that the equation ax2 + 2hxy + by2 = 0 represents a
pair of lines passing through the origin, if h2  ab  0. [1]

Hence, the original matrix is reduced to an upper triangular matrix.
 By equality of matrices, we get

5y  10z = 120
i.e. y + 2z = 24 ....(ii)
5z = 40 ....(iii)
i.e. z=8
Substituting z = 8 in equation (ii), we get
y + 2(8) = 24
 y=8
Substituting z = 8 and y = 8 in equation (i), we get
x + 2(8) + 3(8) = 45
 x + 16 + 24 = 45
 x=5
 x = 5, y = 8, z = 8
Thus, the cost of pencils is ` 5 per dozen, that of pens is ` 8 per dozen and that of erasers is

Q.3. (A) Attempt any TWO of the following:
i. The vector equation of a line passing through the points having position vectors a and b is given
by r  a    b  a 
Here, a  3iˆ + 4 ˆj  7 kˆ and b  6 ˆi  ˆj  kˆ
 the vector equation of the line passing through A (3, 4, 7) and B (6, 1, 1) is

 r  (3iˆ + 4 ˆj  7 k)

For cartesian form:
Putting r  x ˆi + y ˆj+ z kˆ in (i), we get

B is the point of intersection of the lines 3x + 10y = 180 and 6x + 4y = 120.
Solving the above equations, we get Y

Q.4. Definition:
The fusion of one male gamete with egg and that of another male gamete with secondary
nucleus is called as double fertilization. [1]
It is the characteristic feature of angiosperms. It was discovered by Nawaschin (1897) in Lilium
martagon plant.
It consists of two processes:
a. Syngamy: [½]
It is the fusion of first male gamete with egg. It results in the formation of diploid zygote
which develops to form embryo. It is also called generative fertilization.
b. Triple Fusion: [½]
It is the fusion of second male gamete with secondary nucleus. It results in the formation
of triploid PEN (Primary Endosperm Nucleus) which develops to form endosperm.
Since both male gametes participate in fertilization, it is called double fertilization.
Process of double fertilization is described as follows:
i. After pollination, the intine of the pollen grain forms pollen tube and passes through the germ
pore.
ii. The growth of pollen tube is stimulated by the sugary substance produced on the stigma.
iii. The pollen tube with two male gametes and tube nucleus runs through the style and
finally turns towards the micropylar end of the ovule in the cavity of the ovary.
5
Board Answer Paper : March 2016
iv. The length of the pollen tube depends on the length of style.
v. When the pollen tube enters through the micropylar end of the ovule for fertilization, it is
called porogamy (sometimes it may enter through integuments and called as mesogamy
or sometimes through chalaza and called as chalazogamy). [½]
vi. Filiform apparatus of synergids attract the pollen tube towards egg apparatus.
vii. As the pollen tube elongates, it carries with it two haploid, non-motile male gametes and
hence, the fertilization is also called siphonogamy (siphon = tube). [½]
viii. On piercing the nucellus, the pollen tube penetrates the embryo sac. Its tip penetrates the
embryo sac and reaches the egg apparatus passing either between the egg and synergids
or between one synergid and wall of embryo sac.
ix. Ultimately, the tip of the pollen tube bursts and two male gametes are released.
x. The tube nucleus degenerates before bursting of the pollen tube.
xi. One of these male gametes fuses with the egg cell or oosphere causing fertilization, as a
result of which diploid oospore or zygote is formed. This is called first fertilization or
syngamy. [½]
xii. The other male gamete fuses with the secondary nucleus forming the triploid endosperm
nucleus which later on gives rise to endosperm. This is called as triple fusion or second
fertilization. [½]
xiii. Thus, this process of fertilization which occurs twice in the same embryo sac at a time by
two male gametes (syngamy and triple fusion) is called double fertilization.

a. It is defined as the technique of manipulating the genome of a cell or organism so as to
change the phenotype desirably. [1]
b. Manipulation of the genome involves addition, removal, replacement or repair of a part of
genetic material that results into the desirable phenotype change.
The following steps are involved in genetic engineering or r-DNA technology:
i. Isolation of desired gene:
The donor individual having desired gene is selected. [½]

6
Biology
ii. Fragmentation of desired gene:
From the DNA of this donor, desired gene is selected and isolated with the help of restriction
endonuclease enzyme. The donor DNA containing the desired gene is called passenger DNA. [½]
iii. Selection of vector:
A vector DNA (usually plasmid DNA or Phage DNA) is selected. [½]
iv. Formation of recombinant DNA:
The vector DNA is cleaved at a specific point using restriction endonuclease enzyme. The cut
ends of vector DNA are sticky, i.e. cohesive.
The desired gene is now ligated with the vector DNA using ligase enzyme.
The vector DNA containing a new introduced gene is called recombinant DNA (r-DNA) or
chimeric DNA (Chimeric vector or chimeric plasmid). [½]
v. Gene transfer to the host:
This chimeric plasmid is introduced into bacterial cell (Host cell). e.g. E.coli for cloning.
Bacillus subtilis and Saccharomyces cerevisiae can also be used as host.
Such a bacterial cell with chimeric or r-DNA is called transformed host.
The incorporation of r-DNA into bacterial cell is generally done by electroporation. [½]
vi. Cloning:
The transformed bacterial cell is now allowed to grow on the nutrient medium where it multiplies
rapidly.
It results in the formation of a large number of transformed bacterial cells.
All these cells have a copy of recombinant or chimeric DNA.
Generally, after introduction of r-DNA or chimeric plasmid in the host cell, amplification is done.
It is a process in which the number of r-DNA in a bacterial cell is increased. [½]

i. Following factors are responsible for genetic variation:
a. Gene mutation:
Changes in the chemical make up of a gene is called gene mutation or point mutation.
These mutations are the cause for new alleles that introduce variations in the gene pool
and it accounts for the change in gene frequency.
b. Gene flow:
Transfer of genes between populations that differ genetically from one another is called
gene flow.
c. Genetic recombination:
In sexually reproducing organisms, during gametogenesis, the homologous
chromosomes exchange genetic material by the process of crossing over.
This produces new combinations and the phenomenon is called genetic recombination.
d. Genetic drift:
Any alteration in allele frequency, in the natural population by pure chance is called
genetic drift. For e.g. elimination of a particular allele from a population due to events
like accidental death prior to mating of an organism, i.e. the sole possessor of particular
allele. Smaller populations have greater chances for genetic drift. It is also called
Sewall Wright effect.

Human diploid cell has 46 chromosomes, i.e. 23 pairs in each cell.
Out of these, 22 pairs of chromosomes are called autosomes.
Autosomes determine all body characters like colour of hair, skin, colour of eyes, height, etc.
Out of 23 pairs, one pair of chromosomes is called sex chromosomes.
They are X and Y chromosomes. [½]
Every individual gets one set of chromosomes from his mother and one from his father.
A human male thus has 44 +XY chromosomes, whereas a female has 44 + XX chromosomes.
During gamete formation; meiosis or reductional division takes place and a gamete gets only
one set of chromosomes and thus it is haploid.
e.g. Female gamete (ovum) 22 + X, Male gamete (sperm) 22 + X or 22 + Y. [½]
When the male and female gametes unite to form a zygote, the chromosomes again become
diploid. Thus, the offspring gets the same number of chromosomes as his parents. Sex of the
baby is determined by the nature of sperm (X or Y) that fertilizes the ovum. Thus, in human
being, it is the male which determines the sex of the baby. [½]
The relative proportion of various age groups in population is called the age structure. It
determine the reproductive status of a population. [½]
The three major age groups are:-
a. Pre  reproductive group ( 0 to 14 years)
b. Reproductive group (15 to 59 years)
c. Post  reproductive group ( age 60 years and above) [½]

Each testis has seminiferous tubules which are lined by cuboidal epithelium called germinal
epithelium.
Germinal cells in testes are known as primary germinal cells. Primordial cells passes through
three phases, namely:
i. Multiplication phase: Primordial cells undergo repeated mitotic divisions to produce
large number of spermatogonia.
Each spermatogonium is diploid (2n). [½]
ii. The Growth phase: Spermatogonium cell accumulates food and grows in size. Now, it
is called primary spermatocyte. [½]
iii. The Maturation phase: The primary spermatocyte undergoes first meiotic or
maturation division. The homologous chromosomes start pairing.
Each homologous chromosome splits longitudinally. Chiasma formation results in
exchange of genetic material.
At the end of 1st meiotic division, two haploid, secondary spermatocytes are formed.
Each secondary spermatocyte undergoes 2nd meiotic division and produces spermatids.
So, at the end of maturation phase, each spermatogonium produces four haploid
spermatids.
Spermatid is non-motile, so it has to undergo spermiogenesis to become functional,
motile male gamete, i.e. spermatozoan. [½]

Oogenesis is the process of formation of haploid female gametes, called ova, from the diploid
oogonia of the ovary of female organism. It is completed in three stages:
i. Multiplication phase
ii. Phase of Growth

Biology
i. Multiplication phase: Germinal cells undergo mitosis to form large number of
oogonia. Oogonia in human beings are formed in the ovary of a female baby even
before her birth. [½]
ii. Phase of Growth: Just before puberty, under the influence of follicle stimulating
hormone, one of the oogonium grows in size. Growth in size of oogonium is larger
than that seen in spermatogenesis. This grown up cell is called primary oocyte. [½]
iii. Maturation phase: Primary oocyte undergoes maturation or meiotic division.
Meiotic I division of primary oocyte shows equal nuclear division but unequal
cytoplasmic division.
So, at the end of meiosis I division, large sized haploid secondary oocyte and haploid
small sized polar body are formed.
Unequal division is meant for sufficient supply of food for developing embryo.
Secondary oocyte and polar bodies undergo 2nd meiotic division.
2nd meiotic division is arrested at metaphase stage and secondary oocyte is released
from ovary. This division is also unequal. Remaining part of division is completed at
the time of fertilization.
This ovum is ready for fertilization. [½]

Cerebral medulla is mainly formed of white matter (axons of nerve cells).
Deep within the white matter, certain masses of grey matter are located which are called basal
nuclei.
Thick dorsal wall (roof) of cerebrum is called pallium and the ventrolateral wall is known as
corpora striata.
Cerebral cortex shows number of ridges called gyri and depressions called sulci.
The gyri increase the surface area of cerebral cortex.
13
Board Answer Paper : March 2016
There are three deep sulci on the cerebrum, namely Central sulcus, Lateral sulcus and
Parieto-occipital sulcus. [1]
These sulci divide each cerebral hemisphere into four lobes, viz. anterior frontal lobe,
middle parietal lobe, posterior occipital lobe, lateral temporal lobe.
The frontal and parietal lobes are separated by central sulcus, the parietal and temporal lobes
are separated by lateral sulcus, while the parieto-occipital sulcus separates parietal lobe from
occipital lobe. [1]
Functions of Cerebrum:
i. It controls all voluntary activities.
ii. It perceives sensory stimuli through vision, taste, smell, sound, touch and speech.
iii. It is a centre of memory, will power, intelligence, reasoning and learning.
iv. It is a centre for micturition, defaecation, weeping and laughing.
v. It is also a centre for emotions, thoughts and feelings like pain, pleasure, fear,
fatigue, pressure, temperature, etc.

Q.3. (A) Answer the following (Any TWO):
i. Incomplete dominance:
a. Incomplete dominance can be defined as a phenomenon in which neither of the alleles
of a gene is completely dominant over the other and hybrid is intermediate between the
two parents.
b. Incomplete dominance is a deviation of Mendel’s law of dominance which states that
out of two contrasting allelomorphic factors, only one expresses itself in an individual
in F1 generation called as dominant, while other which has not shown its effect is called
as recessive, however this recessive hidden character reappeared, unchanged in F2
generation.
c. Thus, according to incomplete dominance, F1 phenotype is intermediate between the
parental traits. Incomplete dominance is demonstrated in Mirabilis jalapa (four o’clock
plant) as given below:
Phenotype of Parents Red flower White flower

## Phenotypic ratio  1:2:1 (1 Red : 2 Pink : 1 White) [1/2]

Genotypic ratio  1:2:1 (1 RR : 2 Rr : 1 rr) [1/2]
This indicates the following facts:
a. Pink is the phenotype of the heterozygous genotype (Rr).
b. This pattern of inheritance is due to non-blending of the characters, because one-fourth
of the F2 progeny are red-flowered and another one-fourth are white-flowered, which
are the parental combinations.
c. The phenotypic and genotypic ratios are the same.
d. This type of observation has resulted from incomplete dominance of the alleles.
[Explanation] [1]
ii. The plants which are genetically engineered to carry desirable traits like disease resistance,
insect resistance, herbicide resistance are called as transgenic plants. [1]
Examples: Bt cotton, Golden rice, Flavr Savr tomato
3
Board Question Paper : July 2016
a. Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) is a soil bacterium that produces a protein with insecticidal
property.
Bt toxin proteins occur as inactive protoxin.
The ‘cry’ gene codes for this inactive protoxin.
Crops have now been genetically engineered using rDNA technology, by inserting the
‘cry’ gene in plants.
After the insects ingest the transgenic crops, they are killed because the inactive
protoxin is converted into the active form due to alkaline pH of the insect gut.
Bt toxin gene has been cloned and introduced in many plants to provide resistance to
insects without the need of insecticides.
Bt cotton is commercially available to control the disease affecting the cotton balls.
b. Golden rice is genetically engineered rice with greater pro-vitamin A [ – carotene] content.
c. In Flavr Savr variety of tomato, the expression of a native gene that codes for the
enzyme polygalacturonase, has been blocked. The enzyme is responsible for
degradation of pectin during fruit ripening.
In the absence of this enzyme, the fruit ripening or softening is delayed and hence, the
fruit remains fresh for longer periods and flavour is saved.
[Any two examples: 1mark each] [2]
iii. Micropropagation:
It is a type of tissue culture technique by which large number of plants propagules are produced.
In this technique, shoot apical meristem is used as explants. Using the proper proportion of
growth hormones and tissue culture techniques many shoot apices can be produced.
These shoot apices are called Micropropagules. These are genetically identical and from
them, individual plants can be obtained. eg : Potato, banana and orchids. [11/2]
Somatic hybridization:
The protoplast from two different plants can be made to fuse by using fusogenic agent as
polyethylene glycol (PEG). From the resultant combined protoplast by tissue culture, a new
plant variety can be produced.
e.g. Pomato = Potato + Tomato
Raphanobrassica = Raphanus + Brassica [11/2]

This can be represented as:

DNA  

Transcription

Translation:
Translation is the process in which the sequence of codons on the mRNA strand is used
(read/decoded) and accordingly the amino acids are joined to each other to form a
polypeptide chain that makes protein.
The process involves the following steps:
a. Activation of amino acids and formation of AA-tRNA complex:
In presence of an enzyme aminoacyl tRNA synthetase, the amino acid (AA) molecule is
activated and each amino acid is attached to the specific tRNA molecule at 3/CCA end to
form aminoacyl-tRNA complex. The reaction requires ATP. This process is called charging
of tRNA or aminoacylation of tRNA.

b. Formation of the polypeptide chain: It is the actual translation which involves the
following steps:
Initiation:
It begins with the formation of initiation complex which requires the mRNA having codons
for a polypeptide, the smaller (30S) and larger (50S) sub-units of ribosome, the initial
AA1tRNA complex and ATP and GTP as source of energy.
The process of initiation needs initiation factors.
In prokaryotes, the first AA1tRNA complex has amino acid, N-formyl-metheonine (f-met);
In eukaryotes, it is metheonine (met).
The process starts with binding of mRNA on the smaller 30S sub-unit of ribosome.
The start codon AUG is positioned properly.
The AA1-tRNA complex, i.e. f-met-tRNA complex now gets attached to the start codon
AUG. This is done with the help of anticodon UAC of tRNA.
Small and large subunits of ribosome join to form 70S ribosome.
The ribosome has three sites namely, Aminoacyl site (A), Peptidyl site (P) and Exit site (E).
The empty tRNA leaves from E site.
Only the AA1-tRNA complex binds at P site directly, while all the other incoming tRNA
complexes get attached first at A site and then are shifted to P site.
Polypeptide chain is released from P-site.
In eukaryotes, 40S (smaller sub unit) and 60S (larger sub unit) combine to form 80S type of
ribosome. [2]

Elongation:
This is done by formation of peptide linkages/bonds in between the successive amino acid
molecules (AA1, AA2, AA3 and so on). The elongation activity is catalyzed by the enzyme
peptidyl transferase.
Each tRNA complex brings a specific amino acid. Due to complementary nature of
anticodons and codons, the amino acids are placed to their proper positions.
During elongation, the ribosome moves along the mRNA in a step wise manner from start to
stop codon (5  3), one codon ahead each time. This movement is called translocation.
In every step of translocation, one amino acid is added in the polypeptide chain causing
elongation. [1]
Termination:
When the mRNA reaches the last termination codon, i.e. either UAA, UAG or UGA,
termination occurs.
In identifying the stop/termination codon and in releasing the polypeptide chain from the site,
the release or termination factors R1, R2 and S play an important role. After termination, the
smaller (30S) and larger (50S) sub units of ribosome get separated from each other.
In order to increase the cellular efficiency of protein synthesis, many ribosomes may bind to
the mRNA strand and form the polypeptide chain for synthesis of protein molecule. Such a
structure with many ribosomes bound to mRNA is called polysomes or polyribosome. [1]
OR
Q.4. Dark Reaction:
It is the second phase of photosynthesis in which CO2 is fixed or reduced to glucose. It takes
place in stroma of chloroplast. The reactions take place independent of light hence it is
known as dark reaction.
It is also known as ‘Blackman’s reaction’, ‘Calvin cycle’ or C3 pathway. [1]
The cycle is divided into the following phases:
a. Carboxylation phase: [1]
RuBP (Ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate) accepts atmospheric CO2 in the presence of enzyme RuBP
carboxylase (RuBisCO) and forms a 6-carbon unstable compound. This unstable compound
soon splits into two molecules of 3-carbon compound called PGA (phosphoglyceric acid) in
presence of the same enzyme:

Biology

Unstable compound + H2O Mg
RuBP Carboxylase
 2 molecules of 3-PGA
(6C) (3C)

## b. Reduction phase (utilization of assimilatory power): [1]

i. The phosphoglyceric acid molecules are first phosphorylated by using ATP to produce
1,3 di-phosphoglyceric acid.
ii. It is then reduced by using NADPH2 to produce phosphoglyceraldehyde (PGAL) and
inorganic phosphate is released.
3PGA + ATP  1,3-diphosphoglyceric acid + ADP
iii. Some molecules of 3 PGAL are converted into its isomer dihydroxyacetone phosphate
(DHAP) in presence of enzyme triose phosphate isomerase.

## c. Synthesis of sugar and Regeneration phase: [1]

Synthesis of sugar:
i. For the synthesis of one molecule of glucose, six molecules of RuBP and six molecules
of CO2 are required, i.e. six turns of Calvin cycle are required for the synthesis of one
molecule of glucose.
ii. Out of 12 molecules of PGAL, 2 molecules (i.e. 1/6th part) are used for the synthesis of
glucose.
iii. A molecule of PGAL and DHAP combine together to form a molecule of fructose 1, 6-
diphosphate as shown below:
3 PGAL + DHAP  Fructose-1,6-diphosphate
(3C) (3C) (6C)
[Note: Fructose-1,6-diphosphate is the first carbohydrate formed during this process]
iv. Fructose-1,6-diphosphate undergoes dephosphorylation to form fructose-6-phosphate
which on isomerization forms glucose-6-phosphate.
v. Glucose-6-phosphate undergoes dephosphorylation to form glucose. Glucose, thus
formed is either utilized or stored as starch.
Regeneration phase:
i. RuBP gets regenerated through many biochemical reactions called sugar phosphate
interconversions.
ii. All the intermediate compounds formed like erythrose-4-phosphate, xylulose-5-
phosphate, ribose-5- phosphate, sedoheptulose-7-phosphate, etc. are sugar phosphates.
iii. Out of 12 molecules of PGAL, 10 molecules are utilized for the regeneration of 6
molecules of RuMP (ribulose monophosphate) which on phosphorylation form RuBP
as shown below:
12 PGAL  6 RuMP ….(1)
6 RuMP + 6 ATP  6 RuBP ….(2)
iv. Thus, RuBP which is necessary for the reduction of CO2 is regenerated to keep the
process going.

1st Cleavage:
It is completed about 30 hours after fertilization.
It is vertical, i.e. it takes place from animal pole to vegetal pole.
Two daughter cells or blastomeres are formed. [1]
2nd Cleavage:
It is completed about 60 hours after fertilization.
The second cleavage is also vertical, but at right angle to the first one.
The second cleavage occurs first in one blastomere resulting in transitory three-celled stage
followed by four cell stage. [1]
3rd Cleavage:
It takes place about 3 days (72 hours) after fertilization.
It is longitudinal and horizontal and forms 8 cells.
The cleavage continues and results in the formation of a solid mass of cells known as Morula. [1]
Morula:
Morula is about 16 to 32 celled stage, which looks like a small mulberry. It reaches the uterus 4  6
days after fertilization. It is still surrounded by Zona pellucida. Zona pellucida prevents
implantation at abnormal site. It does not expose trophoblast cells till it reaches implantation site. [1]
