  • question_answer Auxin can be bioassayed by

    A)  Hydroponics

    B)  Potometer

    C)  Lettuce hypocotyl elongation

    D)  Cress root inhibition test

    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    Testing of biological activity (growth) of a substance (auxin) by employing living material is called bioassay. Auxin bioassay is also a quantitative test as it measures the amount of effect in response to a particular concentration of auxin. [a] Avena coleoptile curvature test: Avena curvature test carried out by E W. Went (1928), demonstrated the effect of auxins on plant growth by performing some experiments with the oat (Avena sativa) coleoptile. [b] Split pea stem curvature test [c] Root growth inhibition test (Cress root inhibition test) Hence, the correct option is [d].
