NECO GCE 2017 Nov/Dec Biology Practical Answer and Solution to the questions. Verified expo answer


Experiment to demonstrate osmosis in a living tissue(Yam tuber)

A-The volume of the sugar solution in the yam tuber increases
B-The volume of water in the yam tuber remains unchanged

It serves as the semi-permeable membrane

Set up B serves as the control experiment

-Cellophane paper
-Pig bladder

-It makes osmo-regulation possible
-It enhances regulation of waterin the urinary tubules


I-Webbed digit
V-Nictating membrane


-Possesion of webbed digit for swimming
-Possesion of wide mouth for sieving and eating
-Possesion of long hind limb for escape


I-Neural spine
II-Neural arch

III – Tail

I – Produces lytic enzymes for breaking the zona pellucida of the ovum.
III – It helps propel the sperm cell. 

(i) Starch test is negative
(ii) Because CO2, the substrate of starch has been removed.
(iii) It helps trap CO2.
(iv) It removes CO2 from the set-up.
(v)experiment to Show that Carboni
(vi) Oxide is Neccessary for Photosynthesis
(vii) N is the Control Experiment
