Which of the following statement is incorrect?

(a)Fish swims in water by moving its tail from side to side.

(b)The effect of left side of tail on water is compensated by the fish by turning its head to the right side.

(c)Snakes have very small legs and even then they move quite fast by making loops

(d)Snake does not move in a straightline.

Dear Student,

The correct option is option C.

Snakes do not have legs, even then they move quite fast because a snake moves forward by moving its body sideways in the form of many loops and pushing against the ground. The fish has streamlined body, flexible muscles and fish has powerful body muscles that helps it to swim.

Fish swim by flexing their bodies and tail back and forth. Fish stretch or expand their muscles on one side of their body, while relaxing the muscles on the other side. This motion moves them forward through the water. Fish use their back fin, called the caudal fin, to help push them through the water.
