Solution :-

Movement is a characteristic property of all living organisms. Cells in the human body exhibit various types of movement, which are as follows:

(i) Amoeboid movement: This type of movement is exhibited by some specialised cells like leucocytes (White blood cells) and macrophages (immune cells) present in the blood. These blood cells move from the circulatory system to the injury site during tissue damage to initiate an immune response.

(ii) Ciliary movement: This type of movement is exhibited by reproductive cells such as sperms and ova. Ciliary movement facilitates the passage of the ova through the fallopian tube towards the uterus.

(iii) Muscular movement: This type of movement is exhibited by muscle cells which are caused by the contraction of the myofibril of the muscle cells.
