    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which of the following molluscan group is primerily used for pearl culture 

    • A.

      Cephalopods

    • B.

      Gastropods

    • C.

      Pelecypods

    • D.

      Monoplacophorans

    Correct Answer
    C. Pelecypods
    Explanation
    Pelecypods, also known as bivalves, are primarily used for pearl culture. Bivalves such as oysters and mussels are commonly used in the production of pearls. These mollusks have the ability to form pearls by secreting nacre, a substance that coats foreign objects within their shells. Cultured pearls are created by inserting a small object, such as a piece of shell or a bead, into the bivalve's mantle. Over time, layers of nacre build up around the object, creating a pearl. Therefore, pelecypods are the correct answer for the molluscan group primarily used for pearl culture.

    A pearl oyster secretes pearl to

    • A.

      Regenerate injured part

    • B.

      Protect itself against invading parasite

    • C.

      Harden its mentle cavity

    • D.

      Isolate damage tissue of the body

    Correct Answer
    B. Protect itself against invading parasite
    Explanation
    Pearl oysters secrete pearls as a defense mechanism to protect themselves against invading parasites. When a parasite or foreign object enters the oyster's mantle cavity, it irritates the oyster. In response, the oyster secretes layers of nacre, a combination of calcium carbonate and organic substances, around the irritant to form a pearl. This process helps to isolate and encapsulate the parasite, preventing further damage to the oyster's tissues. Therefore, the secretion of pearls serves as a protective response against invading parasites.

    Commercial silk is obtained from

    • A.

      Cocoon/pupa

    • B.

      Catterpiller

    • C.

      Adult moth

    • D.

      Both egg and adult

    Correct Answer
    A. Cocoon/pupa
    Explanation
    Commercial silk is obtained from the cocoon/pupa stage of the silk moth's life cycle. Silk is produced by the silk moth larvae, also known as caterpillars, as they spin a protective cocoon around themselves. The cocoon is made up of a single thread of silk that can be unraveled and used to produce silk fabric. Once the cocoon is formed, the larvae undergo metamorphosis and transform into adult moths. However, if the larvae are allowed to complete their life cycle and emerge as adult moths, they will break the silk thread, making it unsuitable for commercial use. Therefore, the silk industry harvests the cocoon/pupa stage to obtain the highest quality silk fibers.

    Which of the following statement is correct 

    • A.

      Salivary gland of moth secrete silk

    • B.

      Larval form of moth secrete silk

    • C.

      Silk is extracted from cocoon og moth by boiling

    • D.

      Both 2 & 3

    Correct Answer
    D. Both 2 & 3
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Both 2 & 3". This means that both statement 2, which states that the larval form of moth secretes silk, and statement 3, which states that silk is extracted from the cocoon of the moth by boiling, are correct. The larval form of the moth, known as the caterpillar, produces silk through specialized glands in its mouth. This silk is then used to construct a cocoon, which is made of a single thread of silk that the caterpillar spins around itself. To extract the silk from the cocoon, it is typically boiled to soften the silk fibers, making it easier to unravel.
