Q4)What is the function of receptors in our body? Think of situations where receptors do not work properly. What problems are likely to arise?

Answer :

All information from our environment is detected by the specialised tips of some nerve cells. These receptors are usually located in our sense organs, such as the inner ear, the nose, the tongue, and so on. So gustatory receptors will detect taste while olfactory receptors will detect smell. We detect that we are touching a hot object by the action of receptors present on various organs or tissues. If olfactory receptor not works properly then we are not able to smell things like aggarbatti, perfumes, flavour of food.
