    1. Parkinson՚s disease
    2. Alzheimer՚s disease
    3. Schizophrenia
    4. Progeria
  6. Physiologically vitamin E is known to be
    1. anti-inflammatory
    2. a power antioxidant
    3. an important co-enzyme
    4. anti-hypertensive factor

    2. adenyl cyclase
    3. phosphodiesterase
    4. ATPase

    2. two lactic acid molecules
    3. one molecule each of lactic acid and ethanol
    4. two acetyl coenzyme molecules
