  1. An experiment was done to determine the uptake of nitrogen from the soil by broad. The experiment was done with one set of seedlings M grown in the atmosphere enriched with carbon (IV) oxide and another set up of seedlings N grown in the normal atmosphere. The amount of nitrogen in each seedling was measured in milligrams at intervals of ten days. The table below shows the results obtained
    Amount of Nitrogen in milligrams       
    SETM   0   25  70  125  160   395   635  860 895 915
    SETn  0  15  35  50  65  105  120  125 135 140
    TIME(DAYS)  15  25  35  45  55  65  75 85 95 105
    1. Using the same axis draw line graphs of nitrogen uptake by the two (M and N) sets of broad bean seedlings against time 8 marks
