  12. As per NCERT - 3 - Aerobic respiration is respiration which uses oxygen:
    glucose + oxygen = water + carbon dioxide + ENERGY
    C6H12O6 + 6O2 = 6H2O + 6CO2 + ENERGY
    Aerobic respiration is the same in animals and plants.

    2) Anaerobic respiration is respiration without using oxygen. This is different in plants and animals.
    In plants:
    glucose = carbon dioxide + ethanol (alcohol) + ENERGY
    C6H12O6 = 2CO2 + 2C2H5OH + ENERGY
    In animals:
    glucose = lactic acid + ENERGY
    C6H12O6 = 2C3H6O3 + ENERGY . If we start eliminating options, 2 comes out to be the only answer. It is helping in photosynthesis and nothing to do directly with respiration.

  21. 4 - The heads of safety matches are composed of a single part. They contain antimony trisulfide, potassium chlorate, sulfur, powdered glass, inert fillers, and animal glue. They may also include a water-soluble dye. Antimony trisulfide cannot be ignited by the heat of friction, even in the presence of an oxidizing agent like potassium chlorate, and it requires another source of ignition to start the combustion. That source of ignition comes from the striking surface, which is deposited on the side of the matchbox or on the back cover of the matchbook. The striking surface contains red phosphorus, powdered glass, and an adhesive such as gum arabic or urea formaldehyde. When a safety match is rubbed against the striking surface, the friction generates enough heat to convert a trace of the red phosphorus into white phosphorus. This immediately reacts with the potassium chlorate in the match head to produce enough heat to ignite the antimony trisulfide and start the combustion.

Question No. 90 (SAT): In English it is mentioned “ cold streams” while in Hindi it is written “garam dharayein” . All Hindi students should be given bonus points.

There are few questions, which could have been more clear if NCERT has taken some precautions.
