Structural Organisation in Animal Class 11 Important Questions And Answers MCQ PDF

Structural Organisation in Animal Class 11:- In the complex body of multicellular organisms some basic functions are performed by some different types of cells in an organised manner .Animals are made up of various different types of cells. Different organisms have different structural and functional organizations. The different cells combine to form tissues. A various  number of tissues together form an organ, and different organs collectively form an organ system. The different types of tissues consist of – epithelial tissue, connective tissue, skeletal tissue, muscular tissue, and neural tissue.

  • Plasma
  • Red Blood Cells
  • White Blood Cells
  • Platelets

Q.7. Write  the functions and types of the nephridia in an earthworm.

A.7. Following are the Functions:

  • The composition and volume of body fluids is regulated by the nephridia.
  • Nephridia starts as a funnel that collects the excess  amount of fluid from the coelomic chamber.
  • It connects to tubular parts of nephridium and the waste is delivered to the surface through a pore.

Following are the types of Nephridia:

  • Septal nephridia
  • Pharyngeal nephridia
  • Integumentary nephridia

Q.8. Write the functions of each of the following:

  1. Ureters in the  frog.
  2. Malpighian tubules of cockroach.
  3. Body wall in the earthworm.


  1. Ureters in frog– Sperms and excretory waste to the cloaca carry by ureters  . It also carry the ova.
  2. Malpighian tubules- Each tubule is lined by glandular cells and carries out excretion. The excretory materials which are then converted into uric acid absorbed by the glandular cells .Thenit is released out through the hindgut.
  3. Body wall in Earthworm– It is comprises basal cells, receptor cells and gland cells. It provides support and the cells secrete mucus to keep the skin moist. The muscles provide strength and rigidity.

Q.9. Write  a brief account of the circulatory system of earthworm.

A.9. The earthworm having a closed circulatory system,which consists of capillaries, blood vessels and heart. Due to the closed system the blood is confined to the heart and blood vessels. The smaller blood vessels supply to the gut, body wall and nerve cord. The 4th, 5th, and 6th segments contains blood, glands which produce blood cells and haemoglobin that dissolves in the plasma.

Q.10. In which region the following found in the animal body?

  1. Chondrocytes
  2. Axons
  3. Ciliated epithelium


  1. Chondrocytes-  Found in the cartilage of the connective tissue and secrete matrix.
  2. Axons- With a long distal end it is a long fibre. There is a bulb-like structure known as a synaptic knob at the end. It transmits nerve impulses away from the cells.
  3. Ciliated epithelium- It helps in the movement of particles or fluid over  epithelial surface in structures such as the trachea, nasal cavities, bronchial tubes.

Q.11. Write the different cell junctions found in tissues.

A.11. The following cell junctions are found in tissues:

  • Tight Junctions- Plasma membranes of adjacent epithelial cells are held close to each other.
  • Gap Junctions- It facilitates the exchange of the chemicals between adjacent cells.
  • Adhering Junctions- It helps in connecting the neighbouring cells together.

Q.12. Frogs are beneficial for mankind, how?

A.12. Frogs feed on the insects and protect the crops. It is an important link in the food chains and the food web in the ecosystem. Their limbs are also a source of food.

Q.13. In which region the hepatic caecum in a cockroach is located? Write it’s function?

A.13. At the junction of foregut and midgut the hepatic caecum is present .Digestive juices is secreted by it  and helps in the digestion process. 

Q.14. Write two identifying features of an adult male frog.

A.14. Followings are the features of an adult frog:

  •  Loose skin folds in the throat of a male frog called as vocal sacs. It produces a croaking sound.
  •  Copulatory pads present on the forelimb of the male frog are nuptial pads. They  helps in closing the female during Amplexus.
