Question 10

Q10) Write one similarity and one difference between the nutrition in amoeba

and human beings.

Solution 10: Similarity:

The basic process of digestion of food and release of energy is the same in amoeba as well as in human beings.

In amoeba, Digestive juices act on the food and break it down into simpler substances.Gradually, the digested food is absorbed.

Similarly, in human beings various digestive juices act on food and break it down to simpler substances.

Difference:

The digestion process in amoeba is simple while in human beings it is a complex process.

Amoeba engulfs its food by surrounding the food particle with its pseudopodia.

The undigested food which is largely carbon dioxide gas is expelled outside by the vacuole.

While in human beings, the food (which is a complex substance) is taken inside the mouth and undergoes a complex process of digestion and absorption. Finally the undigested food was expelled in the form of faeces.
