(b) Rahul has gained weight due to increased muscle and less of fat.
(c) Rohit has gained weight because his muscle shape has improved.
(d) Rohit has gained weight because he is accumulating water in the body.

Answer:

The answer is the option (c).
When someone starts rigorous exercise, he builds up muscles. It is true that fat is burnt during exercise but the rate of muscle building up may be more than the rate of burning of fat. This is why Rohit has gained weight.

Question:6

Radha was running on a treadmill at a great speed for 15 minutes continuously. She stopped the treadmill and abruptly came out. For the next few minutes, she was breathing heavily/fast.

Answer the following questions.
(a) What happened to her muscles when she did strenuous exercise?
(b) How did her breathing rate change?

Answer:

(a) Strenous exercise increases the strain on the muscles.
(b) Breathing changes from normal to high while running on a treadmill. Due to an increase in the workload on the muscles, the energy consumption of muscles also increased.
As a result, higher demand of carbohydrates is required. Also, the oxygen demand by the muscles also increases. This is fulfilled by the increased blood supply to the muscles. The heart and lungs work at a faster pace
to fulfill the increased demand.

Question:7

Write a few lines about Gout.

Answer:

Gout is the recurrent attack of an acute inflammatory arthritis. It usually affects the big toe and other joints. This happens due to accumulation of uric acid crystals in joints, tendons and the surrounding tissues.

Question:8

What is the source of energy for muscle contraction?

Answer:

ATP (Adenosine Tri Phosphate) is the main source to provide energy for muscular contraction.

Question:9

What are the points for articulation of Pelvic and Pectoral girdles?

Answer:

In pelvic girdle, the point for articulation is the acetabulum. It articulates with the femur.
In pectoral girdle, glenoid cavity is the point of articulation. It articulates with the humerus.

Long Answer Type Questions:

Question:1

Calcium ion concentration in blood affects muscle contraction. Does it lead to tetany in certain cases? How will you correlate fluctuation in blood calcium with tetany?

Answer:

Muscle contraction is initiated by a neural signal from the central nervous system through a motor neuron. This occurs due to gradient of calcium ions. When calcium ions start entering the muscle cells, actin, and myosin filaments slide towards each other, resulting in contraction of muscle. When calcium ions come out of the muscle cells, actin and myosin filaments move back to their positions and the muscle relaxes.

Thus, a higher level of calcium ions in blood implies a lower level of calcium in muscles. This leads to poor contractility of muscles. Whereas, when the level of calcium in blood is low, higher level of calcium in muscles. This may result in an uncontrolled contraction of muscles called tetany.

Question:2

An elderly woman slipped in the bathroom and had severe pain in her lower back. After X-ray examination doctors told her it is due to a slipped disc. What does that mean? How does it affect our health?

Answer:

A rubber-like disc is located between each consecutive vertebra working like a shock absorber. Sometimes, the disc gets displaced and the condition is called slipped disc or prolapsed disc. Slipped disc can severely affect the quality of life of the patient. It puts pressure especially on the nerve coming out of the vertebral column, causing severe pain in the back as well as numbness in the area which is under control of the affected nerve.
Slipped disc can also cause sciatica pain. The pain begins from the upper thigh and goes up to the lower legs. Sometimes, pins and needle sensation also persist for a long duration.

Question:3

Explain sliding filament theory of muscle contraction with neat sketches.

Answer:

As per Sliding filament theory, when actin and myosin filaments slide towards each other, muscle contraction takes place.
  • A neural signal reaching to neuromuscular junction releases a neurotransmitter (Acetyl choline) which generates an action potential in the sarcolemma. Once the action potential is generated, calcium channels in the muscle cells open and allow the entry of calcium ions.
  • Increase of Ca ++ levels result in binding of calcium to troponin on the actin filament and bring about conformational changes. This removes the masking of active sites on myosin filaments.
  • Myosin a polymer of meromyosins has a head, arm, and tail as its important parts. The head also called heavy meromyosin (HMM) utilizes the energy from ATP hydrolysis and binds with the active site on actin.
  • This results in formation of a crossbridge between actin and myosin. This pulls the attached actin filaments towards the centre of 'A' band. The Z- line attached to actin are also pulled inwards and contraction of muscle fibre happens.

Question:4

How does a muscle shorten during its contraction and return to its original form during relaxation?

Answer:

Relaxation of muscles happens, when actin and myosin filaments slide away from each other. The striations appear in the striated muscles, due to the alternate bands of myosin and actin. The band of actin, i.e. the I band, is light in colour and with an elastic band called Z line, it is held in the middle. The myosin band has a darker colour and is called the A band and by an elastic band called M line, it is held in the middle.

During contraction, the position of Z line changes in relation to M, line making the muscle fibre shorter. During relaxation, the actin filaments move to their original position and the muscle fibre becomes longer.

Question:5

Discuss the role of Ca 2+ ions in muscle contraction. Draw neat sketches to illustrate your answer.

Answer:

Calcium ions play an important role in muscle contraction. There are minute channels in muscle cells through which the calcium ions enter, known as calcium channels. When a neurotransmitter enters the muscle cell, it initiates action potential. As a result, calcium channels open and allow entry to calcium ions. Calcium ion binds to the troponin on action filament. This results in removal of masking from the active site on myosin. Myosin then utilizes energy from ATP and moves towards actin to form a cross-bridge. This subsequently results in actin sliding towards each other and eventually muscle contracts. After that, the calcium ions move out from the muscle cells and actin filaments move back to their original position. This results in relaxation of muscle.


Question:6

Differentiate between Pectoral and Pelvic girdle.

Answer:

Pectoral girdlePelvic girdle
It is present in the anterior portion of the body.It is present in the posterior portion of the body.
Glenoid cavity is the articulation point.Acetabulum is the articulation point
It is composed of two bones.It is composed of three bones.

More About NCERT Exemplar Class 11 Biology Solutions Chapter 20

The movement of flagella, cilia, and tentacles has been represented by many organisms. Human beings can move their jaws, eyelids, limbs, and tongue, among others, and some of the movements can lead to change in place or location.

Thus, movements of any organism which leads to change in a physical location are called locomotion. Some examples of locomotor movements are walking, swimming, running, climbing, flying, and more.

For example, cilia are helpful in the movement of food in paramoecium, whereas Hydra uses its tentacles to capture its prey and also uses the tentacles for locomotion.

Human beings use their limbs to change body posture and to move. These are some of those observations that show movement and locomotion cannot be studied separately. Perhaps the two are interlinked by the fact that all locomotions are movements, but all movements are not locomotion.

Whereas the movements of animals vary with their habitat as per the demand of the situation. Generally, the locomotion by animals is for shelter, mate, the search of food/prey, suitable ground, favourable surroundings to live, to hide from their enemies/predators.
