#215. Name the term in Biochemistry : Any of a group of enzymes that are present in saliva, pancreatic juice, and parts of plants and catalyze the hydrolysis of starch to sugar to produce carbohydrate derivatives.
The Answer #5400 is correct. Good work!
#5401. Name the Geographical term : Large persistent body of ice that forms where the accumulation of snow exceeds its ablation (melting and sublimation) over many years, often centuries. They slowly deform and flow due to stresses induced by their weight, creating crevasses, seracs, and other distinguishing features. They also abrade rock and debris from their substrate to create landforms such as cirques and moraines. They form only on land and are distinct from the much thinner sea ice and lake ice that form on the surface of bodies of water.
#5402. Name the Geographical term : The intersection of the sphere and a plane which passes through the center point of the sphere, as opposed to a general circle of a sphere where the plane is not required to pass through the center. (A small circle is the intersection of the sphere and a plane which does not pass through the center.) Any diameter of any it coincides with a diameter of the sphere, and therefore all great circles have the same circumference as each other, and have the same center as the sphere. A it is the largest circle that can be drawn on any given sphere.
Hi bobbym and Olinguito,
#214. Name the Medical term : It precedes the jejunum and ileum and is the shortest part of the small intestine, where most chemical digestion takes place. The name is from the Latin "twelve fingers' breadth". In humans, it is a hollow jointed tube about 25-38cm (10-15 inches) long connecting the stomach to the jejunum.

#5399. Name the term in geology: It is a term still occasionally used for a subsiding linear trough that was caused by the accumulation of sedimentary rock strata deposited in a basin and subsequently compressed, deformed, and uplifted into a mountain range, with attendant volcanism and plutonism.
#5400. Name the Geographical term : It is a deep ravine between cliffs often carved from the landscape by a river. Rivers have a natural tendency to reach a baseline elevation, which is the same elevation as the body of water it will eventually drain into.
Hi bobbym and Olinguito,

#213. Name the system consists of branching tubules extending from the alimentary canal that absorbs solutes, water, and wastes from the surrounding hemolymph. The wastes then are released from the organism in the form of solid nitrogenous compounds. The system is named after a seventeenth-century anatomist.
