  • Q10
    Due to environmental changes, the water concentration outside of a cell becomes higher than the water concentration inside of the cell. How would the cell most likely respond to maintain homeostasis?
    Cell would move water in and out.
    The cell would increase the production of salt.
    The cell would fill with water.
    The cell would release water.

  • Q11
    Observe the virus and cell pictures. Each has projections that extend beyond the main structure. How are these projections used differently in viruses and protists?
    Question Image
    Viruses use projections to move throughout their host while protists use projections to attach to other cells.
    Viruses use projections to allow substances to pass through the main structure while protists use projections for protection.
    Viruses use projections to attach to cells while protists use projections to move through their environment.
    Viruses use projections to defend against the immune system while protists use projections to eat.

  • Q15
    What event would indicate that a virus undergoes the lysogenic cycle?
    The virus reproduces quickly, causing symptoms to arise shortly after infection.
    The virus uses projections to attach to specific cells before injecting nucleic acid.
    The virus lyse the cell to release new viruses and infect other healthy cells.
    The virus stays dormant for a period of time before starting to reproduce.
