It can form polymers like carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids.

Carbon is one of the most prominent element that exist within biomolecules which serves as the sources for energy and other cellular activities for an organism to survive. Additionally, when these carbo, lipids, proteins and nucleic acids form they require carbon atoms.

Biogeochemical cycles recycle water and natural elements throughout the biosphere to ensure that organisms do not run out of these substances. Thiobacillus denitrificans is a specialized species of bacteria that obtains its energy from carbon dioxide and inorganic compounds such as nitrogen in its environment. It is used in bioremediation of groundwater that contains excess nitrate. How does Thiobacillus denitrificans help bioremediate groundwater?

Thiobacillus denitrificans is a chemolithoautotrophic bacteria which can obtain energy from the oxidation of inorganic compounds like nitrogen, iron or sulphur in their environment. It is an autotrophic denitrifying bacteria that is used in the bioremediation of contaminated groundwater. The process of bioremediation is carried out by the process of denitrification.

Nitrate contamination of groundwater is of high-priority concern. In the process of denitrification by Thiobacillus denitrificans, pyrite acts as the electron donor. Other sulphur minerals also act as electron donors in the process of denitrification and help in bioremediation of the contaminated ground water. The bacteria has also been engineered for nitrate removal in water treatment systems also.

1. production of needed energy lysosomes 2. production of protein Golgi apparatus 3. flat sacs that package and ship vesicles outside the cell endoplasmic reticulum 4. store foods or pigments mitochondria 5. tubes serving as transportation channels ribosomes 6. contain digestive enzymes plastids


The correct answer will be-

1. production of needed energy- mitochondria

2.  production of protein- ribosomes

3.  flat sacs that package and ship vesicles outside the cell- Golgi apparatus

4. store foods or pigments- plastids

5. tubes serving as transportation channels- endoplasmic reticulum

6. contain digestive enzymes- Lysozymes


The cellular organelles perform a different function in a cell. Each organelle carries out distinct and specific functions.

1. Mitochondria- double-membrane organelle which performs the function of ATP synthesis. Since statement mentioned the production of energy, therefore, mitochondria are the correct answer.

2. Ribosomes- the organelle associated with the synthesis of proteins during the translation process. Thus, the ribosome is correct option.

3. Golgi apparatus- organelle is associated with the packaging and modification of the protein to be transported. Thus, the Golgi apparatus is the correct option.

4. Plastids- the organelle which contains pigments and provides color to the structure like green pigment in the chloroplast. Thus, plastid is the correct answer.

5. Endoplasmic reticulum- Orgenelle which are tubular in appearance and carry tmodify the proteins synthesised on the ribosomes. Thus, the endoplasmic reticulum is the correct option.

6. Lysosomes- The orgnelle which contains hydrlytic enezymes which hydrolyse every biomolecule. Thus, the lysosome is the correct answer.

A student isolates an unknown bacteria sample from the bottom of a swamp. The student discovers that this species is able to live and grow in an oxygen-free enviroment, but it requires nitrate-rich soil. Which of the following respiration pathways is this species or bacteria most likely using? a. ethyl alcohol fermentation b. lactic acid fermentation c. aerobic respiration d. anaerobic repiration

Answer: Anaerobic Respiration.


The bacteria that is found in the bottom of the swamp requires nitrate rich soil and does not requires oxygen for its survival would be using the anaerobic respiration.

Anaerobic respiration does not requires oxygen and can perform respiration even in the absence of oxygen.

This process requires organic matter and converts it into carbon dioxide and energy. It can use nitrate as a source of organic matter and final electron acceptor instead of oxygen.

If energy efficiency is improved, the cost of energy would decrease and _____. A)more coal would be available B) less electricity would be used C) homes would cost significantly less D) Energy Star appliances would no longer be necessary

The correct answer is option B

The energy efficiency can be defined as the output of energy to the input of energy.

As the efficiency of energy is increasing then the consumption of electricity will be less because previously the energy was used more due to loss of energy.

But now the energy will not be lost in the form of heat or friction and the cost of energy will be less.
