Give scientific reason.

Peripatus is said to be the connecting link between Annelida and Arthropoda.

Solution

  1. Peripatus is the connecting link between two different groups - Annelida and Arthropoda.
  2. It shows annelid-like characters such as segmented body, thin cuticle, and parapodia-like organs.
  3. It also shows arthropod-like characters such as tracheal respiration and open circulatory system.
    Therefore, Peripatus is said to be the connecting link between Annelida and Arthropoda.

Some dinosaurs had feathers although they could not fly birds have feathers that help them to fly. In the context of evolution, this means that ______


There are five animals A, B, C, D and E. The animal A uses its modified forelimbs for flying. The animal B uses its forelimbs for running whereas the animal C uses its forelimbs for grasping. The animal D can live on land as well as in water and uses its forelimbs to prop up the front end of its body when at rest. The animal E which respires by using spiracles and tracheae uses wings for flying but its wings are analogous to the modified forelimbs of animal A.
