Write notes on

(a) Adam’s apple.

 

Answer

Adam’s apple.

At the time of puberty the larynx or the voice box begins to grow

Boys develop a larger voice box, and this voice box is clearly visible from the throat.
This bulge in the throat is called Adam’s Apple

Adam’s Apple looks like a small round apple in front of the throat.

This makes the voice of boys sound hoarse (harsh)
