Which of the following is (are) TRUE for natural selection?
A, B and C
Which of the following BEST demonstrates the unity among all organisms?
DNA Structure and function

Endoplasmic reticulumn
About 25 of the 92 natural elements are known to be essential to life. Which 4 of these 25 elements make up approximately 96% of living matter?
Carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen
What kind of chemical bonds between water molecules give water special properties such as high cohesion, surface tension and the ability to absorb large amount of heat?
Hydrogen bond
What is the difference between covalent bonds and ionic bonds?
Covalent bonds involve the sharing of electrons between atoms, ionic bonds involve donating and accepting electrons between atoms resulting in the electrical attraction between atoms
The molecular mass of glucose is 180 g/mol. Which of the following procedures should you carry out to make a 2 M solution of glucose?
Dissolve 180g of glucose in a small volume of water, and then add more water until the final volume is .5L
Why does ice float in liquid water?
Hydrogen bonds stabilize ad keep the water molecules of ice farther apart than the water molecules of liquid water
One of the buffers that contributes to pH stability in human blood is carbonic acid. Carbonic acid is a weak acid that dissociates into a bicarbonate ion and a hydrogen ion Thus,
The HClO3- to act as a base and remove excess H+ with the formation of H2CO3
The element present in ALL organic molecules is
All of the following contain amino acids EXCEPT,
Polysaccharides, polynucleotides, and polypeptides are similar in that they
are synthesized from monomers by dehydration reactions

humans have enzymes that can hydrolyze the alpha glycosidic linkages of starch but not the Beta gylcosidic linkage of cellulose
Which of the following is NOT a polymer?
Which two functional groups are found in all amino acids?
Carboxyl and amino
At which level of protein structure are interactions between the amino acids side chains most important?
Which of the following statements concerning unsaturated fats is True.
They have multiple double bonds in the carbon chains of their fatty chains
Which of the following statements Best summarizes the difference between DNA and RNA
DNA nucleotides contain deoxyribose sugar, whereas RNA contains ribose sugar
Hydrophobic substances such as vegetable oil are
nonpolar substance that repel water molecules
When biologists wish to study the internal ultrastructure of cells they can achieve the finest resolution by using a
transmission electronic microscope
A primary objective of cell fractionation is to
separate the major organelles so that their particular functions can be determined
what are the evidence that support the endosymbiont theory?
return to this
The ______ is the site of the synthesis of membrane proteins and proteins destined to be secreted out of cell whereas the ________ is the site of the synthesis of cytoplasmic and nuclear proteins.
bound ribosomes on rough ER, free ribosome

Thylakoids, DNA and ribosomes are all components found in ?
Which structure function pair is mismatched?
ribosome ----lipid synthesis
in an animal cell, DNA may be found?
only in the nucleus and mitochondria
Cells of ovaries and testes synthesize lipid containing hormones estrogen and testosterone respectively, Which of the following structures is primarily involved in this process and therefore abundant in these cells?
Smooth endoplasmic reticulumn
What are mitochondria and chloroplasts not classified as part of the endomembrane system?
they are not derived from the endoplasmic reticulumn or golgi apparatus
Which cell type has abundant lysosomes?
phagocytic white blood cells
What do the cell walls of plants and the extracellular matrix of animal cells have in common?
they have functional connections with the cytoskeleton inside the cell
Which of the following statements about the cytoskeleton is TRUE?
Movement of cilia and flagella is the result of motor proteins causing microtubules to move relative to each other
Plasmodesmata in plant cells are most similar in function to_______in animal cells?
gap junctions
Which of the following types of molecules are the MAJOR structural components of the cell membrane?

The difference between pinocytosis and receptor-mediated endocytosis is that
pinocytosis is nonselective in the molecules it brings into the cell, whereas receptor mediated endocytosis involves specific receptor therefore offers more selectively
