  4. 8) Which of the following is one of the ways that the membranes of winter wheat are able to remain fluid when it is extremely cold?
    A) by increasing the percentage of unsaturated phospholipids in the membrane
    B) by increasing the percentage of cholesterol molecules in the membrane

  5. 36) The phosphate transport system in bacteria imports phosphate into the cell even when the concentration of phosphate outside the cell is much lower than the cytoplasmic phosphate concentration. Phosphate import depends on a pH gradient across the membrane-more acidic outside the cell than inside the cell. Phosphate transport is an example of
    A) passive diffusion.
    B) facilitated diffusion.
    C) active transport.
    D) osmosis.
    E) cotransport.
