    1. Stomata
    2. voice box
    3. Aerobic
    4. hemoglobin
    5. alveoli.
  6. The process by which living organism intake oxygen for oxidation of food to obtain energy along with carbon dioxide and water is called respiration.
  7. The amount of air that always remains in lungs during inhalation and inhalation is called residual volume. It is important for exchange of gases between blood and alveoli of lung.
  8. The tiny pores present on leaf surface are called stomata. Through stomata exchange of gases and transpiration takes place in plants.
  9. Respiratory organs are:
    1. Cell membrane
    2. Moist skin
    3. Gills
    4. Lungs and skin
    5. Spiracles.
