1. Explain the importance of reproduction in organism.

Ans. The production of new individual form the parents is known as reproduction. Reproduction is very important as it ensures the continuation of similar kinds of individuals, generation after generation.

Ans. In human beings, sexual reproduction occurs in which reproduction results from the fusion of male and female gametes. Male produce sperms in testes and female produce ovum in ovary. Male release their sperms in female reproductive organ during copulation, called vagina from where the sperms move towards the fallopian tube. Female release one ovum every month in the middle of menstruation cycle which travels towards the fallopian tube. The fusion of male and female gametes takes place in fallopian tube. The fusion of male and female gametes is called fertilisation.
