  6. Answer: b Explanation: Amoeba is a microscopic single-celled organism found in pond water. Amoeba has a cell membrane, a nucleus and many small bubble-like vacuoles in its cytoplasm. Amoeba pushes out one, or more finger-like projections, called pseudopodia or false feet for movement and capture of food. Amoeba feeds on some microscopic organisms. When it senses food, it pushes out pseudopodia around the food particle and engulfs it. The food becomes trapped in a food vacuole. Digestive juices are secreted into the food vacuole. They act on the food and break it down into simpler substances. Gradually the digested food is absorbed

  17. Answer: b Explanation: The heat flows from a body at a higher temperature to a body at a lower temperature. There are three ways in which heat can flow from one object to another. These are conduction, convection and radiation. In solids, generally, the heat is transferred by conduction. In liquids and gases the heat is transferred by convection. No medium is required for transfer of heat by radiation.

  18. Q28. Transfer of heat from one place to another by the movement of fluids is known as a. Convection b.Conduction c. Radiation d. Advection

  19. Q29. Transfer of heat without the help of any medium occurs in case of Convection b.Conduction c. Radiation d. Advection

  20. 030. Why do we wear dark-coloured clothes in winter and light-coloured clothes in summer? a. Dark-coloured clothes protect us from cold while light-coloured clothes protect us from heat. b. Dark clothes trap air inside them while light-coloured clothes don't. c. Warm clothes prevent air from entering inside while as light-coloured clothes allow the air to pass through them. d. Dark coloured clothes absorb radiation better than the light-coloured objects.
