Q3.   Trichoderma species, free living fungi, are present in root ecosystems are potentially useful as
  •  Biopesticides
  •  Biofertilisers
  •   Methanogens
  •  Vectors for genetic engineering
a) Biopesticides. Trichoderma is a free living saprophytic fungi that most commonly lives on dead organic matter in the soil and rhizosphere. It acts as a biopesticides for control of many soil borne disease

Q4. One of the major difficulties in the biological control of insect pest is that the
  •  Method is less effective as compared with the use of insecticides
  •  Predator does not always survive when transferred to a new environment
  •  Predator develops a preference to other diets and may itself become a pest
  •  Practical difficulty of introducing the predator to specific area
b) Harmful insects and pests can be controlled through biological control by the introduction of their natural predators. The major difficulty in this control is that the predator does not always survive when transferred to a new environment.

Q5. Opium is obtained from

Q6.  Insecticide obtained from neem plant is
  •   Pyrethrin
  •  Pyrethroid
  •  Thiocarbamate
  •  Azadirachtin
d) Neem extracts contain an antifeedant compound azadirachtin, which keeps away insects.

Q7.Protoplasts of two different species are used in
  • Micro-propagation
  •  Somatic hybridization
  •  Clonal propagation
  •  Organography
b) Somatic hybridization or parasexual hybridization involves the fusion of isolated protoplasts of two different species.
Q8. Which of the following is a wrong matching of a microbe and its industrial product?
  • Yeast – Statins
  •   Acetobacter aceti – Acetic acid
  •  Clostridium acedobutylicum – Lactic acid
  •   Aspergillus niger – Citric acid
c) Butyric acid is produced during fermentation activity of bacterium Clostridium acetobutylicum. Lactic acid fermentation is carried out by Lactobacillus sp.

Q9. During anaerobic digestion of organic waste, such as in producing biogas, which one of the following is left undegraded?
  •  Hemicellulose
  •  Cellulose
  •  Lipids
  •  Lignin
(d) Lignin does not degraded in production of biogas.

Q10.  Organic farming includes
I. use of biofertilisers and biopesticides
II. crop rotation
III. locally developed pest resistant varieties
Choose the correct option

  •  I and II
  •  I and III
  •  II and III
  •   I,II and III
d) Chemical fertilisers cause pollution of water bodies as well as ground water, besides getting stored in crop plants. Therefore, environmental scientist are pressing for switch over to organic farming. Organic farming is a from of agriculture that relies on techniques such as crop rotation, green manure, compost and biological pest
