5. Define the following.

a. Invertebrates: Those animals which are simple and without a backbone in their body are called invertebrates. Invertebrates can be unicellular or multicellular. Invertebrates are divided into nine sub-group/phylum. Nine phylum of vertebrates are 1. Protozoa, 2. Porifera, 3. Coelenterata, 4. Platyhelminthes, 5. Nemathelminthes, 6. Annelida, 7. Arthropoda, 8. Mollusca and 9. Echinodermata.

b. Vertebrates: Those highers animals which have a backbone in their body are called vertebrates. Vertebrates are multicellular animals. Their body are divided into the head, trunk and limbs. Vertebrates can be warm blooded and cold blooded. Vertebrates are divided into five class. Five classes of vertebrates are 1. Pisces, 2. Amphibia, 3. Reptilia, 4. Aves and 5. Mammalia.

c. Parasites: Those animals which depend on other animals’ blood or digested food for their livings are called parasites. Parasites have a flat body and a complete digestive system. Parasites comes under the sub-group/phylum ‘Platyhelminthes’. The three examples of parasites are Tapeworm, Liver fluke and Planaria. Tapeworm is the parasite in a human body and a pig. Liver fluke is found in the liver of cattle.

d. Mammals: Those animals which have mammary glands (milk providing organs) in their body are called mammals. All mammals come under the class mammalia. Mammals body are divided into the head, neck and trunk. Mammals give direct birth to their young ones. Mammals suckle their milk to their young ones. Mammals are warm blooded animals and most developed among the vertebrates. Some examples of mammals are human beings, dogs, rats, cows, bats, dolphins, etc.

6. Give reasons.

a. Sponge lies in phylum porifera.

Answer: Sponges lies in phylum porifera because they have pores in their body.

b. Fishes have a stream lined body covered with scales.

Answer: Fishes have streamlined body covered with scales because it helps fish to swim easily and scales helps to prevent water enter into the body

c. A lizard is a reptile.

Answer: A lizard is a reptile because it crawls on wall/ground.

d. Birds have light and fluffy feathers and wings.

Answer: Birds have light and fluffy feathers and wings because it helps them to fly easily and keep warm.

e. Mammals have mammary glands on them.

Answer: Mammals have mammary glands on them to feed milk to their young ones.

f. A bat is a mammal.

Answer: A bat is a mammal because it gives direct birth to their babies and suckle it’s milk.

g. Amoeba is an unicellular organism.

Answer: Amoeba is an unicellular organism because it is made of single cell.
