    answer choices
    natural selection
    embryology
    speciation
    evolution
  • Question 11
    30 seconds
    Q. Some organisms that share a common ancestor have features that have different functions, but similar structures.  These are known as
    answer choices
    vestigial structures
    analogous structures
    homologous structures

  • Question 12
    60 seconds
    Q. A fossil of an extinct dinosaur is found and the anatomy of the fossil shows similarities to that of a bird. What could this mean?
    answer choices
    This is purely by chance and isn't significant
    The extinct dinosaur and modern bird share a common ancestor
    All dinosaurs evolved into birds and that's why there aren't any dinosaurs alive today
    Dinosaurs choose to fly, and evolved into birds to escape predation and capture food
