Question 25 of 28

Medal-premium 1

How is starch suited for energy storage?

Select one or more of the following:

  • When hydrolysed, starch forms alpha glucose which is easily transported and readily used in respiration

  • Starch is insoluble so is able to diffuse out of cells, and draw water into cells

  • Starch can't be hydrolysed

  • Starch is compact so not a lot can be stored in a large space

Question 26 of 28

Medal-premium 1

Cellulose is a major component of cell walls, providing rigidity and therefore preventing the cell bursting via osmosis. How?

Select one of the following:

  • Cellulose exerts an outward pressure on the cell wall which prevents any further influx of water

  • Cellulose exerts an inward pressure on the cell wall which prevents any further influx of water

Question 28 of 28

Medal-premium 1

Due to cellulose, cell walls in plant cells are so rigid and turgid that they push against one another, making harbaceous plants...

Select one of the following:

  • ...semi rigid maintaining its turgid state. This provides maximum surface area for photosynthesis

  • ...fully rigid maintaining its turgid state. This provides maximum surface area for photosynthesis
