RRB General Science questions for ALP – 3

RRB General science questions:

1. In plants, which of the following converts light energy into chemical energy?

      A. Chlorophyll
      B. Guard Cells
      C. Stomata
      D. Cuticle
  Ans:- A
Explanation:  Chlorophyll is a molecule produced by plants, algae, and cyanobacteria which helps in the conversion of light energy into chemical energy. It consists of central metal ions bonded to big organic molecules that are composed of hydrogen, carbon or other elements. It absorbs certain light waves but cannot absorb green. It is vital for photosynthesis because it helps to channel the energy of sunlight into chemical energy.

        B. Chlorophyll
        C. Cellulose
        D. Stomata
Ans:- C


Explanation: Plant cell wall is mainly composed of cellulose,  starch,  protein, and lipid. Cellulose is an organic compound with the formula(C6H5O10)n. Cellulose is an important structural component of the cell wall of green plants.


5. Blood is a type of which tissue?
   A. Epithelial tissue
   B. Connective tissue
   C. Nervous tissue
   D. Muscular tissue
Ans:- B
Explanation: Connective tissue is made up of two elements: cells and a matrix. The types of cells found in connective tissue depend on the type of tissue they support. For example, red and white blood cells are found in blood, which is a fluid connective tissue.


6. Which cell organelle plays a central role in cellular reproduction?
   A. Plastids
   B. Food Vacuoles
   C. Mitochondria
   D. Nucleus
Ans:- D


Explanation: The nucleus plays a central role in cellular reproduction. The nucleus is also called the brain of the cell. The nucleus has a double layered covering called nuclear membrane. The nuclear membrane has pores that allow the transfer of material from inside the nucleus to the cytoplasm.


7. The pituitary gland is located in
     A. brain
     B. kidney
     C. liver
     D. intestine
  Ans:- A


Explanation: The pituitary gland is a pea-sized structure located at the base of the brain, just below the hypothalamus and it is attached via nerve fibers. It is part of the endocrine system and produces critical hormones, which are chemical substances that control various bodily functions.

    A. Heart attack
    B. Hepatitis
    C. Joint arthritis
    D. Arthritis
Ans:- A


9.  Which among the following helps in the circulation of blood?
    A. Arithrocytus
    B. Blood platelets
    C. Monocytes
    D. Lymphocytes
Ans:- D


Explanation: Lymphocytes are the types of white blood cells that have a specific function and work together to fight illness and disease. White blood cells are an important part of your immune system. They help your body fight antigens, which are bacteria, viruses, and other toxins that make you sick. If your doctor says you have a weakened immune system, that means there aren’t enough white blood cells in your bloodstream.


10. Typhoid fever is caused by (SSC 2001)
A. Virus
B.  Bacteria
C. Fungus
D. Allergy
Ans:- B


Explanation: Typhoid fever is an illness associated with fever caused by the Salmonella enteric serotype Typhi bacteria.
Typhoid fever is contracted by drinking or eating the bacteria in contaminated food or water.


11. The virus contains  (SSC 2002)
   A.  Protein and Lipid
B. Nucleic acid and Protein
C. Lipid and Carbohydrate
D. Carbohydrate and nucleic acid
Ans:- A


Explanation: Virus particles contain the viral genome packaged in a protein coat called the capsid. For some viruses, the capsid is surrounded by the lipid bilayer that contains viral proteins,  This lipid and protein structure is called the virus envelope.


12. Hay fever is the sign of    (SSC 2003)
    A. Malnutrition
B. Allergy
C. Old age
