(2) Wheat seed
(3) Pieces of Opuntia stem
(4) Soyabean seed

Expert's answer
Ganong’s respirometer designed to measure oxygen uptake orCO2 release. Germinating seeds have a high rate of respiration, thereforeoxygen in the apparatus is used up. Thislowers the air pressure inside the bulb raising the level of mercury.Falling the level of mercury indicates the absence of respiration. Thus, the
