Q. Why do the plant shoots bend towards light?
The bending of plant shoots towards light is termed as phototropism. It is due to the plant hormone called auxins. When light falls on one side of the plant, the auxins generally spread towards the darker side of the shoot. This stimulates the cells in the darker side to grow longer than the corresponding cells of the illuminated region. This results in more growth on the darker side which causes the stem to bend towards light.
Q. Which gland in the human body is responsible for growth?
The pituitary gland.
