Very Short Answer Type Question.

1. Name the process by which plants make food.

Ans: The process by which plants make food is photosynthesis. It is a biological process that is used by plants to prepare their own food with the help of sunlight. This process occurs only in the presence of sunlight. The plant uses light energy to convert carbon dioxide and water into oxygen and glucose.


2. Name the part of the plant which produces its food.

Ans: The part of the plant which produces its food are leaves. In the presence of sunlight, leaves prepare food using light energy. The leaves use light energy to convert carbon dioxide and water into oxygen.


3. What substance in the leaves gives them a green color?

Ans: The substance in the leaves that gives them a green color is a chlorophyll. This is because this green pigment, called chlorophyll, absorbs the green color wavelength of white light, which is coming from the sun. The green wavelength of light is reflected from the plants or leaves, so it appears green in color.


4. What is the main vein of a leaf known as?

Ans: The main vein of a leaf is known as the Mid-rib. The main vein of the leaf in the middle of the blade is called Midrib.


5. Name the green pigment present in the leaves of a plant.

Ans: The green pigment present in the leaves of a plant is chlorophyll. It absorbs the green wavelength of white light and is reflected from the leaves, so it appears green in color.


6. In the question: 

  1. Name the gas used in photosynthesis.

  2. Name the gas produced in photosynthesis.

Ans: (a) A gas which is used in photosynthesis is carbon dioxide. 

         (b) A gas produced in photosynthesis is Oxygen.


7. Name the process by which plant leaves lose water into air.

Ans: Transpiration is the process by which plant leaves lose water in the the air. In this process,, water evaporates from aerial parts of plants such as steam, leaves, and flowers.


8. Which substance is used to remove chlorophyll from a green leaf during photosynthesis experiments.

Ans: The substance used to remove chlorophyll from a green leaf during photosynthesis experiments is small beakers, alcohol, water burner, etc.


9. Name the two substances which combine in green leaves in the presence of sunlight to make food.

Ans:  The two substances which combine in green leaves in the presence of sunlight to make food are carbon dioxide and water. The process in which these substances combine and make food in the presence of sunlight is called photosynthesis.


10. What is the usual name of medium-sized plants with hard and woody stems whose many branches arise just above the ground.

12. Which parts of plants absorb water and minerals from the soil.

Ans: The root is the part of plants that absorbs water and minerals from the soil and sends it to the whole plant body, which helps in the growth of plants.


13. Name the three main groups into which most of the plants can be classified.

Ans: Herbs, shrubs, and trees are the main group into which most of the plants can be classified.


14. Name two types of plants other than herbs, shrubs and trees.
