S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. A crust is the outermost layer of a Earth.The crust of the Earth is composed of a great variety of igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks.The oceanic crust of the Earth is different from its continental crust.The oceanic crust is 5 km (3 mi) to 10 km (6 mi) thick and is composed primarily of basalt, diabase, and gabbro.The continental crust is typically from 30 km (20 mi) to 50 km (30 mi) thick, and it is mostly composed of less dense rocks than is the oceanic crust.

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. Homo sapiens (Latin: "wise person") is the binomial nomenclature (also known as the scientific name) for the human species.

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. A megaspore mother cell, or megasporocyte, is a diploid cell in plants in which meiosis will occur, resulting in the production of four haploidmegaspores. At least one of the spores develop into haploid female gametophytes thus making the ratio of functional and degenerate megaspores is 1:3.

S7. Ans.(d)
Sol. The term tissue is used to describe a group of cells found together in the body. There are four types of tissues in complex animals,they are connective, muscle, nervous, and epithelial.

S8. Ans.(b)

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. The SI unit for pressure is the pascal (Pa), equal to one newton per square metre (N/m2, or kg•m−1•s−2). This name for the unit was added in 1971. It is named after the French polymath Blaise Pascal.
