Sexual reproduction involves the fusion of two gametes – male and female gametes during fertilization to form a zygote which develops into a new organism. It involves organisms of the same species.


Sexual reproduction is the fusion or joining of male and female gametes or nuclei from different individual to form a zygote which later develops into an embryo or organism.


(i) biceps (flexor)

(ii) Triceps (extensor)


– When one touches a hot object, the sensory receptor in the skin receives the stimulus

– An impulse is transmitted from the receptor to the spinal cord, via the dorsal root/sensory neurone

– The intermediate neurone in the spinal cord passes on the impulse to the motor neurone

– The motor neurone then sends the impulses to an effector organ (muscle) via the ventral root

– All the neurones are linked by synapses across which impulses are sent

– The muscle upon receiving the impulse contracts causing the hand to be withdrawn from the hot object

– The semi-circular canals in the inner ear are responsible for the maintenance of balance with respect to circular motion.

– There are  three semi-circular canals and each is found in one of the geometrical planes (right angle to each other)

– During spinning, the gelatinous cupula in one of the semi-circular canals is set in motion.

– This stimulates the sensory hairs, and impulses are sent through the auditory nerves to the brain for proper body posture.

– When one stops spinning, the gelatinous cupula does not stop moving instantly but continues to move for some time

– This cause the continue feeling of the sensation of spinning

Light rays from an external object is refracted by the cornea, aqueous humour, the lens and the vitreous humour. The lens act as the fine adjustment bringing the rays to a focus on the retina. The image formed on the retina of human are inverted and diminished. The brain receives the stimulus via the optic nerves and then interprete it.


(i)Parasitic nutrition


(iii)Carnivorous nutrition



(i) Internal fertilization

(ii) External fertilization


– After fertilization, the zygote divides repeatedly and develops into an embryo which consists of the plumule, radicle and one or two cotyledons.

– The primary endosperm nucleus develops into a nutritive tissue called endosperm, which stores food used by the developing embryo

– The synergids and the antipodal cells degenerate

– The ovule changes to form the seed and the interguments form the seed coat

– The micropyle remains where air and water enter the seed.

– The ovary develop into the fruit and the ovary wall forms the fruit wall called the pericarp.

– The style shrivels off, the petals, sepals and the stamens wither and fall off
