Solution 1

Structure of human sperm

Function of Acrosome-It releases various chemicals like hyaluronidase and acrosin which helps sperm in fusing with egg cell.

Function of Nucleus-It stores the genetic information. It carries 23 chromosomes, out of which one is sex chromosome (either X or Y). Thus, it is responsible for determining the sex of the individual.

Function of Middle piece-The middle piece contains several mitochondria, which produce energy for the motility of the sperm.

Solution 2

  • Head: It the flat oval part of the human sperm that contains the nucleus, containing genetic material, and acrosome, a small anterior part which is formed from Golgi complex. It secretes hyaluronidase enzyme which helps in the entry of sperm into the egg.
  • Middle Piece: It is the middle, cylindrical portion of the sperm, which contains numerous mitochondria. They provide energy (ATP) to the sperm for its movement.
  • Tail: It is the long, tapering structure composed of cytoplasm. It helps in the movement of the sperms inside the uterus.
