              5.   (a)  It is a process where cells change in shape and
                     form  so  that  they  acquire  special  features  to
                     perform specific function.             Section C: Free response questions
                 (b)  (i)   Long  and  narrow  structure  increases  the   1.   Cell wall and chloroplasts are found in plant cells but

                         Biconcave shape increases the surface area
                         so that the rate of diffusion of oxygen in and
                         out the cells is faster/           Unit 2: Movement of substances

              3.   A   Cell  wall  does  not  restrict  the  movement  of
                     substances.                            2.   (a)   False [Each substance diffuses according to its

              6.   B   Plants are living organisms that can make their   back and forth as they have kinetic energy, but
                     own food. Plant cells have cell wall.          there will be no net movement on either side of
