  1. (a) There are five sense organs in our body. They are the eyes, the ears, the nose, the tongue and the skin.

    (b) A receptor is a cell present in the sense organs that are sensitive to specific stimuli.
    Example: The eyes have light receptors which can detect light and the ears have sound receptors which can detect sound.

    An effector is a part of the body which can respond to a stimulus according to the instructions given by the nervous system.
    Example: Muscles and glands of the human body.
