  3. 3. 1-d 2-c 3-d 4-b 5-a 6-a 7-a 8-d 9-d 10-b #Solution# #2# The plant that is tolerant to high level of radioactivity is not known. #6# Kalyansona is high yielding disease resistant and semi-dwarf variety of wheat. #7# IR-8 was formed at IRRI, Philippines. Taichung Native-1 is from Taiwan. From these two varieties semi-dwarf varieties were developed in India. Keep on visiting for more study material for MH-CET 2015. -Team Ednexa
