Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following is the Class of the Jawless Fish?

    • A.

      Chondrichthyes

    • B.

      Chordata

    • C.

      Osteichthyes

    • D.

      Agnatha

    • E.

      None of the Above

    Correct Answer
    D. Agnatha
    Explanation
    Agnatha is the correct answer because it is the class of jawless fish. Agnatha includes fish such as lampreys and hagfish, which lack true jaws and have a cartilaginous skeleton. This class is characterized by their cylindrical bodies, lack of paired fins, and their ability to attach to other fish and feed on their blood or bodily fluids. Agnatha is one of the major classes of vertebrates within the phylum Chordata, which also includes other classes such as Chondrichthyes and Osteichthyes.

    Which of the following is not a feature of the Class Agnatha?

    • A.

      Ectothermic

    • B.

      No Paired Limbs

    • C.

      Gills

    • D.

      Has scales

    • E.

      External Fertilliation

    Correct Answer
    D. Has scales
    Explanation
    The Class Agnatha is a class of jawless fish, which includes hagfish and lampreys. These organisms are characterized by several features, such as being ectothermic (cold-blooded), having no paired limbs, possessing gills, and undergoing external fertilization. However, they do not have scales, which is the distinguishing feature of the Class Agnatha.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    What features does Chondrichthyes have?

    • A.

      Tooth-like scales

    • B.

      Ectothermic

    • C.

      Internal fertilization

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Chondrichthyes, which includes sharks, rays, and skates, have tooth-like scales called dermal denticles. They are ectothermic, meaning their body temperature is regulated by the environment. Additionally, Chondrichthyes exhibit internal fertilization, where the male transfers sperm directly into the female's body. Therefore, all of the given options - tooth-like scales, ectothermy, and internal fertilization - are features of Chondrichthyes.

  • 4. 

    Chondrichthyes have a.....

    • A.

      Closed circuit circulatory system

    • B.

      3 chambered heart

    • C.

      Clitellam

    • D.

      Radial symentry

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Closed circuit circulatory system
    Explanation
    Chondrichthyes, which include sharks, rays, and skates, have a closed circuit circulatory system. This means that the blood flows through a continuous loop, with the heart pumping it to the gills to be oxygenated and then to the rest of the body before returning to the heart. This type of circulatory system is efficient in delivering oxygen and nutrients to the tissues and removing waste products. It is different from an open circulatory system, where the blood is not contained within vessels and flows freely in the body cavity.

      Lamprey

    • E.

      Leach

    Correct Answer
    D. Lamprey
    Explanation
    The class Agnatha consists of jawless fish. Lampreys are a type of jawless fish and belong to the class Agnatha. They are known for their round, eel-like bodies and sucker-like mouths. Lampreys are often parasitic, attaching themselves to other fish and sucking their blood. Therefore, lamprey is the correct answer as it is an example of an animal from the class Agnatha.

      All of the Above are Chondrichthyes

    Correct Answer
    C. Sea Urichin
    Explanation
    Sea Urchin is not an example of an animal from the Class Chondrichthyes because Chondrichthyes is a class of fish that includes sharks, rays, and skates, which are all cartilaginous fish. Sea Urchins, on the other hand, belong to the class Echinoidea and are not fish. They are marine animals with a spherical body covered in spines and are related to sea stars and sea cucumbers.

    Correct Answer
    B. Amphibians
    Explanation
    A frog would be classified under the class "Amphibians" because amphibians are a group of cold-blooded vertebrates that live both on land and in water. Frogs, along with other animals like salamanders and newts, belong to this class. They have unique characteristics such as moist skin, webbed feet, and the ability to undergo metamorphosis from tadpole to adult. Therefore, "Amphibians" is the correct class for a frog.

    • C.

      Birds

    • D.

      Fish

    Correct Answer
    C. Birds
    Explanation
    Birds are not cold-blooded because they are ectothermic, meaning their body temperature is regulated by external sources. Unlike warm-blooded animals, reptiles cannot generate their own body heat and rely on the environment to maintain their temperature. In contrast, insects, reptiles, and fish are cold-blooded as their body temperature fluctuates with the surrounding environment.

      Reptiles

    • E.

      None of the Above

    Correct Answer
    D. Reptiles
    Explanation
    The given properties, such as dry scaly skin, ectothermic nature, 2 pairs of legs, lungs, internal fertilization, rubbery eggs with an amniotic shell, and a 3.5 chambered heart, are all characteristic of reptiles. Reptiles are known for their scaly skin, their reliance on external heat sources to regulate their body temperature, and their unique reproductive traits, such as internal fertilization and amniotic eggs. Additionally, reptiles typically have limbs with 2 pairs of legs and possess lungs for respiration. The presence of a 3.5 chambered heart is also a defining characteristic of reptiles. Therefore, the correct answer is Reptiles.
