Q. (2) Which part of our body keeps growing even after our death?

  • We are thinking of nails and hairs continue to grow after a person dies.

  • The answer is no, because after death, the human body dehydrates, causing the skin to shrink. This shrinking exposes the parts of the nails and hair that were once under the skin, causing them to appear longer than before.

  • Once your body dies, there’s no more glucose, “Day told live science”. So skin cells, hair cells and nail cells no longer turn over and produce new cells.

Q. (3) If you are the owner of the house, the responsibility of the siblings (one sister, one brother) is up to you, you do not have enough money, only one of the two can study, so whom do you teach?

Answer:

I will teach my sister, our society is such that brother can become self – sufficient even in less education, but if she does not study, then always depends on others.

  • Bananas go through a unique process known as negative geotropism.

  • Instead of continuing to grow towards the ground, they start to turn towards the sun.

  • The fruit grows against gravity, giving the banana its familiar curved shape.

Image of Why don’t birds on a wire get a shock

  • Electricity flows along the path of least resistance.

  • Birds don’t get shocked when they sit on electrical wires because they are not good conductors of electricity.

  • Their cells and tissues do not offer electrons an easier route than the copper wire they are already travelling along.

  • As a result, the electricity bypasses the birds and keeps flowing along the wire instead.

  • Another reason why electricity will bypass a bird sitting on a wire is because there’s no voltage difference in a single wire.

  • It the bird would touch the ground while sitting on the wire and touch another electric wire with a different voltage, then it would get shocked and likely die by electrocution
