Question :

Which of the following statements regarding enzymes is true?

A. All enzymes in living organisms have an optimum temperature of 37°C.

B. Enzymes increase the activation energy for the reactions they catalyse.

C. Enzymes are denatured at 0°C.
D. Enzymes function as organic catalysts

Answer : D

Reason:

The optimum temperature is the temperature at which the rate of reaction is at a maximum, which is about 35 – 40OC. Above the optimum temperature, the increased kinetic energy cause the chemical bonds, which hold the enzyme molecule in shape, to brake. For many organisms, the rate of reactions stops at 60OC due to complete denaturation of body enzymes. Enzymes function as organic catalysts

Question :

Where there is an excess of substrate, which graph represents the effect of increasing concentration of enzyme on the rate of reaction?

A. A

B. B

C. C
D. D

Answer : D

Reason:

Increasing enzyme concentration increases the number of active sites available to catalyse the chemical reaction. The rate reaction id directly proportional to the concentration of enzyme, as long as other factors (substrate, temperature and Ph) are not limiting. Where the substance concentration becomes the limiting factor (that is, substrate is in short supply), further increase in enzyme concentration will not increase the rate of reaction

Question :

According to the lock and key hypothesis, which is the lock and the key for enzyme rennin?

A. A

A. It is caused by uncontrolled mitosis

B. It may be caused by a mutation in a gene or genes
C. It is a class of diseases characterised by benign tumours

Question :

How many cells are produced by a zygote which undergoes a series of six mitotic divisions?

A. 6

B. 12

C. 32
D. 64

Answer : D

Reason:

The mitotic phase (M phase) includes mitosis and cytokinesis. During mitosis, the nucleus, containing the duplicated chromosomes, divided to form two daughter nuclei. During crytokinesis the cell crytoplasm divides into two. Cell division occurs that is, the parent cell divides into two daughter cells. Each daughter cell then enters into interphase. 64 cells are produced by a zygote which undergoes a series of six mitotic divisions

A. 0

B. 2

C. 4

D. 8

Answer : B

Reason:

Mitosis is a continuous process. However, for purpose of discussion, it usually divided into four main stages. There are prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase. Telophase are the two sets of chromosomes have separated and have reached the opposite poles of the cell. So, the bar chart shows the amount of DNA present in a somatic cell of an animal at different stages of mitosis.
