  •  Homo habilis
  •  Ramapithecus

Q2.Homo erectus lived about
  •  2 million years ago
  •  1.5 million years ago
  •  1 million years ago

  •  Independently by Charles Darwin and Alfred Russell Wallace in 1900
  •  By Charles Darwin in 1866

Alfred Russell Wallace had travelled widely in South America, Malaya and the Eastern Indian archipelago and come to the same conclusions as Darwin regarding natural selection. In 1858, Wallace wrote an essay, outline his theory and sent it to Darwin. This stimulated and encouraged Darwin and in July 1858, Darwin and Wallace presented papers on their ideas at a meeting of the Linnean Society in London. Over a year later, in 1859, Darwin published-‘On the origin of species by means of natural selection’.

Q4. Which of the following statements are incorrect?
I. Microbial experiment shows that when the pre-existing advantagoeus mutations are selected they will result in the observation of new phenotypes. Over few generations, this would results in speciation
II. Neanderthal fossils represents a human relative.
III. In 1938, a fish caught in South Africa happened to be a coelacanth (lobe fins) which was thought to be extinct. These animals evolved into the first living amphibian on both land and water
IV. Lichens can be used as water pollution indicators
V. Alfred Wallace, a naturalist, who worked in Malay Archepalago (present Indonesia) had also came to the similar conclusion on natural selection as reached by Darwinism
The correct option is
  •  I and II
  •  Only II
  •  V and IV
  •  Only IV
(d) Lichens are the indicator of air pollution not of water
Q5.Which one is the largest ape among the given four genera of apes?

It can make tools, etc. (iv) Gorilla (the gorilla) It is the largest ape and very dangerous

II. Wings of bat and wings of cockroach
III. Wings of bird and wings of butterfly
IV. Fins of fish and forelimbs of horse
V. Forearm of human and forelimbs of horse
The correct combination is visible in option
  •  I and II
  •  I and V
  •  III and IV
  •  IV and V
(b) Hands of man and wings of bat, forearm of humans and forelimbs of horses are the examples of homology because they have same or common origin but have different functions

Q7.First human like hominid is known as
  • Neanderthal man/span>
  •  Homo habilis
  •  Dryopithecus
  •  Homo erectus
(b) Homo habilis; (homo = human; habilis = able) 2-1.5 mya. Brain of Homo habilis was one half the size of a modern human. They were more sophisticated with rudimentary speech

Q8.Which of the following is a pair of analogous organs?
  • Contractile vacuole in Amoeba and uriniferous tubule in frog
  •  Paddle of whale and front legs of horse
  •  Mouth parts in insects
  •  Forelimbs in lizard and wings in birds
(a) Contraclile vacuole in Amoeba and uriniferous tubule in frog are analogous organs. Analogous organs have different origin and structure but have same function. Similarly, on the basis of same function is called analogy. Both contractile vacuoles and uriniferous tubules are cocerned with osmoregulation.

Q9.Which set includes only analogous organs?
  •  Wings of butterfly, housefly and bat
  •  Hindlegs of horse, grasshopper and bat
  •  Wings of butterfly and wingspead of bat and birds
  •  Mandibles of cockroach, mosquito and honey bee
(c) The organs, which have similar function but different in their structure and origin are called analogous organ, e.g., wings of butterfly and wingspead of bat and birds.

Q10. The first mammals were like …A… . Their fossils are small sized. Mammals were …B… and protected their unborn young inside the mother’s body
Choose the correct option for A and B to complete the given NCERT statement
