  • Q3
    Some students used vinegar to dissolve away the shells of three eggs and used these eggs as models of human red blood cells. The students observed the changes in the eggs when they were placed in different solutions. Which statement best describes the role of the cell membrane in this model?
    Question Image
    The cell membrane removes solutes from the environment.
    The cell membrane is an impermeable barrier that prevents water from entering the cell.
    The cell membrane allows water to enter and leave the cell.
    The cell membrane allows solutes to enter the cell, which causes the cell to shrink.

  • Q6
    A type of cellular transport is shown. Which description best identifies this type of cellular transport?
    Question Image
    Facilitated diffusion, because energy is being used to move molecules with the concentration gradient
    Osmosis, because energy is not being used to move molecules with the concentration gradient
    Endocytosis, because energy is not being used to move molecules against the concentration gradient.
    Active transport, because energy is being used to move molecules against the concentration gradient.

  • Q8
    In a study of physical endurance, researches observed significant increases in the heart rates and breathing rates of participants immediately after they engaged in strenuous exercise. Which statement best explains the increase in the heart rate and the breathing rate during exercise?
    An increase in muscle activity causes increases in glucose levels in red blood cells.
    Muscle cells increase in temperature and require fluid to reduce the temperature
    The water concentration in the blood increases
    Body cells require increased oxygen as energy is expended

  • Q10
    When mammals get an infection, their internal body temperature often rises 2 to 3 degrees Celsius. The body gets the energy it needs to react to an infection by-
    Increasing the rate of cellular division
    decreasing the rate at which carbon dioxide is removed from the cell.
    decreasing the rate of glucose movement into the cell
    increasing the rate of cellular respiration in mitochondria
