    chloroplast also show cytoplasmic male sterility sir plz put the question correctly,i can not understand question no7 ans,plz describe the ans correctly.

  • sai prasad

    The questions are quite curious and very impressive.

  • Abanita sharma

    Thnx for the questions..they r very gud

    The 4th ques sounds 2 be incomplete kindly look into it

  • Muhammed jadeer

    Sir please show the answers after the completion of the test thanks

  • Devanshu Ranjan

    I have got 93% marks,plz tell me about ques. no.4

  • krishu

    i am confused with ques 7…. for testing the genotype of an unknown plant, we generally cross with female parent… k/a test cross. crossing with male gives out cross.. which i think is not liable… am i right????

    • zeba

      yes it’s quite write as a test cross is a cross between F1 hybrid with recessive parent (female parent)

  • amnashahid

    please clear the sense of question no 4 i can;t understand it

  • surjeet acharya

    in question 4, the question is not complete.
    incomplete question
