An analytical taxonomic aid for identifying plants and animals based on similarities and dissimilarities is called

  • Catalogue

  • Flora

  • Manual

  • Key

  • Key



Taxonomic key is a device that is used by biologists for identifying unknown organisms.

Keys are constructed so that the user is presented with series of choice about the characteristics of unknown organism. It is also used to identify organisms on the basis of similarities and dissimilarities.

Match Column I with Column II and choose the right option

Column I Column II
A. Amoeba i. Has flagella for locomotion
B. Paramecium ii. Moves with the help of cilia
C. Trypanosoma iii. Puts out pseudopodia for locomotion

  • A - iii; B - i; C - ii

  • A - iii; B - ii; C - i

  • A - ii; B - i; C - iii

  • A - ii; B - i; C - iii

A - iii; B - ii; C - i

Amoeba locomotory organ is pseudopodia, Paramecium have cilia and Trypanosoma moves with the help of flagella.


I. Unicellular Protists found in fresh water

II. Possess a protein-rich outer layer called pellicle

III. Have two flagella

IV. Possess pigments identical to those in higher plants.

These characters apply to genus
