Class 7 Science Respiration in Organisms Textbook Exercise Questions and Answers

Question 1.
Why does an athlete breathe faster and deeper than usual after finishing the race?
Answer:
During the race, an athlete puts in more effort for obtaining more energy. It requires more oxygen to breakdown the food for the supply of energy. Hence, an athlete breathes faster and deeper than usual after finishing the race.

Question 2.
List the similarities and differences between aerobic and anaerobic respiration.
Answer:
Similarities
Food is oxidized in both cases and energy is released. It yields by-products and takes place in a cell.

Differences
Carbon dioxide and water are the end products of aerobic respiration, while alcohol is the end product of anaerobic respiration. Aerobic respiration releases more energy than anaerobic respiration.KSEEB Solutions for Class 7 Science Chapter 10 Respiration in Organisms

Question 3.
Why do we often sneeze when we inhale a lot of dust-laden air?
Answer:
When dust particles enter our nostrils, it trig- gas a message to the brain. The brain instructs the nasal chamber to initiate sneezing. This is a method to remove the unwanted dust particles from the nostrils. Sneezing is a type of defence mechanism used by our bodies.

Question 4.
Take three test tubes. Fill 3/4th of each with water. Label them A, B and C. Keep a snail in test tube A, a water plant in test-tube B and in C, keep snail and plant both. Which test-tube would have the highest concentration of CO2?
Answer:
Test tube A will have the highest concentration of CO2 because snail exhales CO2 and inhales O2. Hence, CO2 concentration increases in test tube A. Test tube B contains a water plant which takes in CO2 for photosynthesis and hence CO2 concentration would be less. Test tube C contains both snail and water plants. The CO2 exhaled by snail is utilized by the plant. Thus, the test tube has less CO2 concentration.
