Which of the following is correct about the given figure?
(1) The length of the thick and thin myofilaments has changed.
(2) Length of both anisotropic and isotropic band has changed.
(3) The myosin cross-bridges move on the surface of actin and the thin and thick myofilaments slide past each other.
(4) Length of the sacromere remains same.
Skeletal muscles appear striated due to presence of two characteristic protiens in alternating dark and light bands. Which of the following is a correct match of the protien with its light refractive property and colour?
Protien Colour Property
(1) Myosin Light Anisotropic
(2) Actin Dark Anisotropic
(3) Myosin Dark Isotropic
(4) Actin Light Isotropic
During muscular contraction, which of the following events occur?
(i) H-zone disappears
(ii) A band widens
(iii) I band shortens
(iv) Width of A band is unaffected
(v) M line and Z line come closer
(1) (i),(iii),(iv) and (v)
(2) (i),(ii) and (v)
(3) (ii),(iv) and (v)
(4) (i),(ii) and (iii).
Which of the following is true for the labelled parts in the figure below?
(1) A - Z-line - located at centre of I - band
(2) B - Thin filament - occurs in A-band only
(3) C - Thick filament - confined to I-band
(4) D - H-zone - located at centre of M-line
The H-Zone in the skeletal muscle fibre is due to
(1) the central gap between actin filaments extending through myosin filaments in the A-band
(2) extension of myosin filaments in the central portion of the A-band
(3) the absence of myofibrils in the central portion of A-band
(4) the central gap between myosin filaments in the A-band

(1) ligament of neck
(2) ligament of ankles
(3) ligament of palm
(4) ligament of face.
Consider the diagram given below.

(1) Sacrum, ilium, pubis, femur, tibia and fibula
(2) Ilium, pubis, sacrum, femur, fibula and tibia
(3) Sacrum, pubis, ilium, femur, tibia and fibula
(4) Ilium, sacrum, pubis, femur, tibia and fibula
In old age, stiffness of joints is due to the
(1) hardening of bones
(2) inefficiency of muscles
(3) decrease in synovial fluid
(4) enlargement of bones
Oxygen content reduction makes the glycolyse (glycogenesis) intensity increased due to
(1) increase of ADP concentration in cell
(2) increase of concentration in cell
(3) increase of ATP concentration in cell
(4) increase of concentration of peroxides and free radicals
