(iii) Their bones are hollow and light.

(iv) Their bodies are streamlined and extremely light.

(52) Ans. The muscles  joined to our bones work in pairs. When one muscle of the pair contracts then the other muscle of the pair is stretched.

The two types of muscles which are involved in bending and straightening of arm are biceps and triceps.

(53) Ans. Cockroach have six legs.

The cockroach moves on the ground by using its legs. Each leg of cockroach consist of stiff, hollow tubes joined together. The legs of cockroach can be moved easily by the muscles. The muscles which move the legs of cockroach are attached to the inside of the exoskeleton. The flexor muscles bend the legs whereas extensor muscles straighten the legs and make the cockroach move.
