  • Q1
    Both flies and moths will give birth to larvae that must undergo metamorphism in order to transition to its adult form. Which of the following does this suggest?
    Their embryological development suggests that they are not closely related
    Their embryological development suggests that they are better adapted form survival
    Their embryological development suggests that they are somewhat closely related
  • Q2
    Fossil records can be used to support evolution by giving what type of information about various organisms?
    Fossils show how organisms developed as embryos and can be used to make comparisons with modern day organisms
    Fossils give some information about the relative age of organisms as well as appearances
    Fossils show how organisms lived during their respective ages and can lend proof to natural selection
  • Q3
    Which of the following best represents homology?
    Both humans and dogs possess a humerus bone, but they look different based on function
    Humans and bananas share about 50-60% of their DNA with one another
    Bacteria can exchange DNA between individual cells through the use of a pilus
  • Q4
    Which of the following terms best refers to the comparison of structures believed to have originated from the same common ancestor?
  • Q5
    Which of the following best represents natural selection?
    A taller giraffe will be able to survive better than a shorter giraffe because it can reach leaves in trees easier.
    A cat contains more rod cells in their eyes allowing them to better see in the dark.
    Both dinosaurs and birds contain a furculum (wishbone) suggesting that they are related.
  • Q6
    Which of the following best describes an adaptation?
    The muscles in the hind legs of goats strengthens over generations to better help them climb up steep cliffs.
    The eyes of cave fish have slowly disappeared due to living in extremely dark environments
    Lionesses hunt by separating slower, weaker prey animals from their herds
  • Q7
    Dodo birds are an extinct species of bird that are related to pigeons and doves. They lived on the Mauritius island near Madagascar, but they were hunted to extinction because they did not express a fear of humans. Pigeons and doves, on the other hand, will quickly fly away if a human gets too close. The reason pigeons and doves survived whereas the dodo bird did not is an example of which of the following?
    Natural selection
  • Q8
    For something to be considered an adaptation, which of the following must be true?
    There must be a change in color based on the organisms' habitat
    There must be a change that better helps it to survive.
    There must be a predator/prey relationship among the organisms involved
