. Assertion: Tapeworm roundworm and pinworm are endoparasites of human intestine


Reason: Improperly cooked food is the source of intestinal infections

Best Answer

Ans || (b)

Solution ||| Tapeworm (Taenia solium) belongs to Platyhelminthes and roundworm (Ascaris), pinworm (Enterobius) belongs to Aschelminthes. All of these are endoparasites. The main cause of the intestinal infection is improperly cooked food. However, tapeworm infection occurs by eating improperly cooked food, Ascaris is transmitted by contaminated food and water and Enterbious vermicularis or ringworm may be transmitted through food or improper sanitary conditions. So both assertion and reason are correct.
