Q. 8. Given below is a square of letters in which are hidden different words related to respiration in organisms. These words may be present in any direction — upwards, downwards, or along the diagonals.

Find the words for your respiratory system. Clues about those words are given below the square.

(a) At an altitude of more than 5 km there is no air

(b) The amount of air available to a person is less than that available on the ground.

(c) The temperature of air is higher than that on the ground.

(d) The pressure of air is higher than that on the ground.
