    Organisms live in harmony with one another despite limited resources.
  • Q2

    It will evolve into another species
    It will become extinct.
    It will begin to mutate into another organism.
    It will move into a new environment and adapt.
  • Q3
    According to the theory of evolution, which offspring will most likely survive.
    Offspring that are best adapted to the environment
    Offspring that are best equipped for movement
    The first born offspring
    The largest offspring
  • Q4
    Dark moths began to outnumber white moths in cities after the Industrial Revolution. What is the most likely reason for this change?
    Light-colored moths began to turn black because of factory pollution.
    Light-colored moths were less favored for survival in the new environment.
    Light-colored moths mutated into dark colored moths.
    Light-colored moths began to die due to overpopulation.
  • Q5
    Which part of Darwin's theory of evolution may be used to describe the results of when lions prey on antelope?
    variation in species
    natural selection
    adaptation to environment
    survival of the fittest
  • Q6

    It helps the animal store body fat.
    It controls water loss from the animal's skin.
  • Q7
    Ice ages have occurred throughout Earth's geologic past and have caused major changes to the landscape and climate. Many organisms needed specialized adaptations to be able to survive these changes. Which phrase describes and adaptation found in animals that lived during this time?
    long tails that act as a fifth appendage to allow for movement through the branches of tall trees
    large beaks or trunks to assist in reaching large fruit hanging from the tree branches high off the ground
    large ears that flap to lower the external body temperature and provide excellent hearing of approaching predators
    thick layers of fat under their fur provides so much insulation that periods of rest are needed to prevent overheating
  • Q8

    homologous structure
    analogous structure
    vestigial structure
  • Q9
    The following statement best describes what type of structure? Body parts of different organisms that have a similar structure but not necessarily a similar function. (for example, a cat leg, a whale flipper and a human arm)
    homologous structure
    analogous structure
    vestigial structure
  • Q10
    The following statement best describes what type of structure? A body part that does not seem to have a function in an organism. (for example, wisdom teeth, appendix)
    vestigial structure
    homologous structure
    analogous structure
  • Q11
