  • Question 1
    30 seconds
    Q. How is the number of chromosomes in a human sex cell different from the number in a human body cell? 
    answer choices
    A sex cell has 23 chromosomes and a body cell has 46. 
    A sex cell has 46 chromosomes and a body cell has 23.
    A sex cell has chromosomes that are half
    A sex cell has chromosomes that are twice as long as those in a body cell. 
  • Question 2
    30 seconds
    Q. Dante wants to match the types of cells with how they are produced. Which choice correctly matches a type of cell with how it is produced? 
    answer choices
    Egg cell --> meiosis in males 
    Sperm cell --> mitosis in males
    Body cell --> mitosis in females
    Body cell --> meiosis in females
  • Question 3
    30 seconds
    Q. The diagram above shows a human cell. What type of cell is this? 
    answer choices
    A reproductive cell (sex cell) made from mitosis 
    A body cell made from mitosis 
    A body cell made from meiosis 
    A reproductive cell (sex cell) made from meiosis
  • Question 4
    30 seconds
    Q. How is meiosis related to sexual reproduction?
    answer choices
    Meiosis allows the offspring produced during sexual reproduction to grow and develop.
    Meiosis joins together the sex cells during sexual reproduction to produce new offspring
    Meiosis produces the sex cells that join to form new offspring during fertilization.
    Meiosis produces the body cells that join to form new offspring during fertilization. 
  • Question 5
    30 seconds
    Q. Which of these choices is made from the process of mitosis?
    answer choices
    Egg
    Sperm
    Sex Cell
    Skin Cell
  • Question 6
    30 seconds
    Q. Which of these choices is NOT a reason for mitosis taking place in a multi-cellular organism? 
    answer choices
    Growth
    Repairing Wounds
    Asexual Reproduction
    Making Sex Cells
  • Question 7
    30 seconds
    Q. During a lab experiment, Rahul looks at six unlabeled slides showing different stages of the cell cycle. The teacher asks Rahul to place the slides in order, starting with Interphase. In what order should Rahul place the slides? 
    answer choices
    Interphase --> prophase --> anaphase --> metaphase --> telophase 
    Interphase --> anaphase --> metaphase --> prophase --> telophase 
    Interphase --> telophase --> anaphase --> metaphase --> prophase
    Interphase --> prophase --> metaphase --> anaphase --> telophase
  • Question 8
    30 seconds
    Q. Which of these statements is true of asexual reproduction?
    answer choices
    It produces offspring genetically identical to each other and requires one parent. 
    It produces offspring genetically identical to each other and requires two parents.
    It produces offspring genetically different from each other and requires one parent. 
    It produces offspring genetically different from each other and requires two parents. 
  • Question 9
    30 seconds
    Q. Which type of reproduction involves two parents and results in offspring that are not genetically identical to either parent? 
    answer choices
    Binary fission
    Asexual reproduction 
    Sexual reproduction 
    Vegetative reproduction
  • Question 10
    30 seconds
    Q. A group of scientists test three different types of cells – muscle cells, nerve cells, and skin cells – to find out which cell type goes through the steps of mitosis the fastest. The scientists time 100 cell divisions for each type of cell. The temperature and amount of light is the same for all of the cells. What is a controlled variable (or constant) in this investigation? 
    answer choices
    The speed of the divisions 
    The types of cells
    The temperature
    The age of the scientists
  • Question 11
    30 seconds
    Q. Which of the following occurs during Anaphase I?
    answer choices
    Chromosomes cluster at the two poles of the cell. 
    Crossing over occurs
    Chromosomes align down the center of the cell. 
    One version of each chromosome moves toward a pole (sides). 
  • Question 12
    30 seconds
    Q. What does meiosis create?
    answer choices
    Skin cells
    Reproductive (or sex) cells
    Only egg cells
    Nerve cells
  • Question 13
    30 seconds
    Q. Select the best description of a chromosome.
    answer choices
    material used to form the cell membrane
    tightly wound DNA that is ready for cell division
    long, stretched out strands of DNA
    molecules that form the sex cells
  • Question 14
    30 seconds
    Q. In the picture above, a small, aquatic animal called a hydra is reproducing. Which term best describes the process shown in the picture?
    answer choices
    budding
    binary fission
    sporulation
    fertilization
  • Question 15
    30 seconds
    Q. Which reason BEST explains why reproduction is necessary?
    answer choices
    The survival of every species depends on the ability of organisms to reproduce.
    Reproduction decreases differences in species
    Reproduction creates simpler body structures.
    Organisms reproduce so they can move from one ecosystem to another.

    answer choices
    growth
    repairing wounds
    asexual reproduction
    making sex cells
