The given figure shows a typical animal cell with its components labelled as 'a – j'.
Identify the labelled components and select the incorrect statement regarding them.
AThe organelles 'e', 'h', 'g' and 'i' are membranebound structures which function in close coordination with one another.
B'f' organelle is responsible for the synthesis of fats inside the cells and it stores Ca2+ for release during muscle contraction.
C'a' and 'b' are selectively permeable membranes.
D'j' is the site for protein synthesis. It allows hereditary message from 'd' to get translated into proteins.
A student examined a particular plant cell through its various stages of growth. After making various measurements, he realised that the increase in cell size was largely due to enlargement of the central vacuole rather than an increase in the amount of cytoplasm. Why might this be an advantageous strategy for the cell?
AEnlarging the cytoplasm would make the cell less turgid.
BEnlarging the vacuole would make it unnecessary for the cell wall to stretch.
CEnlarging the vacuole would minimise any lowering of the surface area - volume ratio of the cytoplasm.
DAll of these

The diagram shows a bubble at the bottom of a pool. Assuming that the temperature of the pool is constant throughout the water, which of the following describes the change of the pressure and the density of air in the bubble as it rises to the surface?
Five blocks, B1, B2, B3, B4 and B5 of different masses are connected by four identical strings S1, S2, S3 and S4 as shown in the figure. They are pulled by a steadily increasing force F. Which of the following strings is most likely to break?
