(1ai)
A sperm cell consists of a head, middle piece and a whip-like tail. At the anterior end of the head is a structure called Acrosome. This Acrosome contains a liquid which facilitates the entry of the sperm into an egg. The middle piece contains numerous mitochondria which are involved in producing energy needed for propelling the sperm after ejaculation. The tail is for movement.

(1aii)
A palisade cell contain chloroplasts which makes them a site of photosynthesis in the leaves of those that plants that contain them, converting the light to the chemical energy. Beneath the palisade mesophyll are the spongy mesophyll cells, which also perform photosynthesis. They allow the passage of gases through the intercellular spaces in them.

The four transmittable characters in plants are:
-Height
-Colour
-Shape of fruit
-Size of Leaf

============================

6ai)
Chemosynthesis is the biological conversion of one or more carbon-containing molecules (usually carbon dioxide or methane) and nutrients into organic matter using the oxidation of inorganic compounds (e.g., hydrogen gas, hydrogen sulfide) or methane as a source of energy, rather than sunlight

6aii)
i)Bacteria
ii)methanogenic archaea

6b)
Nitrogen — 78 percent.
Oxygen — 21 percent.
Argon — 0.93 percent.
Carbon dioxide — 0.04 percent.

6 c)
i) They are composed of relatively few species of plants
ii) The salt level of the habitat is high
iii) High flooding rate
iv) extreme temperature and salinity fluctuations.

6cii )
Roots of salt marsh plants help stabilize the sandy substrate and trap and hold nutrients and detritus that flow through with each tidal cycle. This detritus trap helps feed bacteria , algae , and invertebrates . These root tangles also provide critical refuge for small fish and other animals .
