Formative Practice 10.4 (Form 5 Biology Textbook Exercise and Answer)

Question 1:
State the meaning of green technology.

Green technology refers to the development and application of products, equipment and systems to preserve the environment and nature and minimising or reducing negative impacts from human activities.

Question 2:
What are the roles of an individual in order to materialise the National Green Technology Policy?

• Using energy from renewable sources, such as solar energy.
• Do activities which can decrease the release of carbon dioxide gas, such as carpooling and using public transport.

Question 3:
The campaign of forbidding the usage of plastic straws is one of the initiatives towards sustainable development. As a restaurant owner, discuss the effects of the enforcement of this campaign to your business.

This campaign is able to preserve the environment by increasing the quality of water and soil if plastic substances are not being thrown into soil and water. This can avoid water pollution and save aquatic animals from accidentally eating plastic. With the absence of plastics, there will be no dangerous gases released due to plastic combustion and therefore, there will be no air pollution.
