      What is the similarity and dissimilarity between 'whole moongdaal' and 'broken moongdaal' in terms of respiration and growth? Based on these parameters classify them into living or non-living?


                      The similarity and dissimilarity between whole moong daal and broken moong daal is as follows
    S.N. Whole Moong Daal Broken Moong Daal
    1. Whole moong dal is a intact seed of a plant. It is not intact seed.
    2. When given all suitable conditions for germination, it germinates. Unable to germinate as vital seed part such as embryo and cotyledons are destroyed.
    3. During germination, it resumes metabolic activity. Unable to resume metabolic activity. 
    4. Due to metabolism activated enzymes hydrolyze stored food in the cotyledons. Broken seed will imbibe water, enzyme will get activated but will not lead to growth.
    5. Uses oxygen and respire as a result emits . Because of destruction of embryo, no respiration, so no , emission.
    6. As seed resumes active metabolism the embryo givens rise to plumule (shoot) and radicle (root). No such growth seen, but broken daal has  nourishment value for human as its cotyledons have stored food material rich in protein..
    So, we can conclude that broken moong daal does not have viable embryo so does notgerminate and does not show any metabolism and growth, but it has great nutritive value a sit has good amount of protein and minerals.
