what is rowlatt act ?why it opposed

Nikhitha Sai 19th Feb, 2020

Hello. Rowlatt act is the one that is passed during British time. This gave power to police to arrest any person without any reason. Police can just come and arrest a person without having any proper orders or reason. Since patriotism and nationalism was increasing by then, britishers passed this act to curb the nationalism in people. This act was opposed by mahatma Gandhi because not everyone should be punished in response to isolated political crimes. So Indians went on strikes, suspended businesses, held meetings. It was named as black act

Hope this helps

Regards

Nikhitha

Hope that you are doing well

Landfilling is an important method in waste disposal.

Landfills are area of land that are engineered to allow for the deposition of waste onto and into it to concentrate the waste in compacted layers and reduce the volume and then it is monitored for the control of liquid and gaseous effluent in order to protect the environment and human health.

Landfills are used for ther uses as well . For example,   municipal solid waste, faecal sludge can also be discharged into landfills , so landfill serves as important method in waste disposal


I hope that it helps you

Thankyou

if extracellular digestion takes place then enzymes of lysozomes act on food ???how?is it autophagocytosis??

Somrita Bhattacharya 12th Jan, 2020

Hello

The following are the steps of autophagy

  • First the cell is isolated by double layer membrane
  • Then the phogosphere vesicles elongate
  • Then the vesicles bursts to release enzymes by which autophagocytosis takes place
  • Then the remnant gets attached to a lysosome which form autolysosome which completes the degradation.
