  • Q1
    The passing of traits from an organism to its offspring is known as
  • Q2
    Justin is a tall, blond-haired, blue-eyed, soccer player who likes to cook. Based on the information in the chart, which is an inherited trait from his mother?
    Question Image
    the color of his eyes
    his ability to swim
    the enjoyment of cooking
  • Q3
    Several babies were switched in a hospital nursery. The best way to correct the problem is to compare the mothers' and the babies'
    blood type
    eye color
  • Q4
    Some traits found in living organisms are always shown whenever a single allele is present within the cells. What type of traits require two identical alleles in the cells to be shown?
    separated traits
    mutated traits
    duplicated traits
    recessive traits
  • Q5
    When two cats reproduce, two individual parent cells (sperm and egg) join together to form the offspring. This process is called fertilization. When a paramecium reproduces there is no union of egg and sperm. What is the difference between the cat’s offspring and the paramecium’s offspring?
    Both the cat’s offspring and the paramecium’s offspring will express only dominant traits.
    Both the cat’s offspring and the paramecium’s offspring will be identical to one of the parents.
    The cat’s offspring will share some traits with both of its parents, but not be identical to either one of the parents and the paramecium’s offspring will be identical to the parent.
  • Q6
    A bacteria cell can reproduce by dividing in half. Once the cell divides, there are two bacteria cells. Which of these is the best estimate of how genetically similar the two bacteria cells will be?
  • Q7
    Living organisms can change through generations. Genes contain the various traits of offspring. Diverse offspring (more likely to be able to survive a disease) would be a result of which type of reproduction?
    binary fission
    asexual reproduction
    sexual reproduction
  • Q8
    Sexual reproduction results in greater genetic diversity than asexual reproduction. What is the reason for this diversity?
    the individual genes are larger
    the genes contain more information
    the genes are fewer in number
    the large number of gene combinations
  • Q9
    Asexual reproduction result in
    more numerous offspring
    diverse offspring (different)
    fewer offspring
    uniform offspring (same kind of offspring)
  • Q10
    Sexual reproduction results in
    offspring that have different genes
    offspring with all the same genes
    offspring that have fewer number of genes
    offspring that have greater number of genes
  • Q11
    A male and female are expecting their first offspring. Which of these best describes the characteristics of the offspring?
    The offspring will have only the male's characteristics.
    The offspring will have characteristics of both the male and female.
    The offspring will have only the female's characteristics.
  • Q12
    Asexual reproduction results in more identical offspring because it
    is less efficient
    is a slower process
    passes on the same gene set
    uses smaller genes
  • Q13
    Sexual reproduction, results in genes that are not all the same because it
    involves combination of genes
    doesn't involve genes
    requires fewer genes
  • Q14
    How do the results of sexual and asexual reproduction compare?
    sexual reproduction results in more diverse offspring
    asexual reproduction results in more diverse offspring
    asexual reproduction results in greater number of offspring
  • Q15
    Why don't you use a Punnett square to predict the traits of offspring from asexual reproduction?
    predicting traits in asexual reproduction is too complex for a Punnett square
    offspring have identical traits to their parent in asexual reproduction
    offspring always have a 50% chance of inheriting traits from their parent
