  • Question 1
    30 seconds
    Q. What is a mutation and how does it affect genes?
    answer choices
    A mutation is a growth on an organism.
    A mutation is a copy of a gene.
    A mutation is a change in an organisms genes.
    A mutation is a feature of an organism.
  • Question 2
    30 seconds
    Q. What do gene versions do?
    answer choices
    Make the proteins
    Provide instructions for proteins
    Give the  organism its genes
    Pass on the genes to the offspring
  • Question 3
    45 seconds
    Q. How do different protein structures in cells determine traits?
    answer choices
    Different protein structures affect how they connect to other proteins molecules.
    Different protein structures have no effect on connecting genes.
    Different protein structures can change the gene.
    Different protein structures provide instructions.
  • Question 4
    30 seconds
    Q. How many proteins do heterozygous gene versions create?
    answer choices
    One protein
    Two proteins
    Three proteins
    They are the same.
  • Question 5
    45 seconds
    Q. How do organisms get their traits?
    answer choices
    They get thier traits from their environment.
    They inherit one copy of a gene from their mother.
    They inherit  copy of a gene version from their mother and father.
    They get their traits from the proteins they eat.
  • Question 6
    30 seconds
    Q. What does homozygous mean?
    answer choices
    Two copies of a gene version that are different.
    Two copies of a gene version that are the same.
    Two copies of a gene that are mutated.
    Two copies of a gene that are used to create another gene.
  • Question 7
    45 seconds
    Q.  Why do siblings and parents different from each other?
    answer choices
    Siblings get different amounts of genes from their mother or father making them different.
    Each sibling has a mutation that causes them to have different traits.
    Siblings use their environment and experiences to determine their traits.
    Offspring inherit different combinations of gene versions from parents.
  • Question 8
    45 seconds
    Q. How do gene versions determine different traits?
    answer choices
    An organism has two copies of a gene for each feature.
    Each parent randomly passes on one of its two copies of genes to its offspring.
    Each gene version provides a unique instruction to make a specific protein molecule in an organism's cells.
    Traits vary between parents and offspring and among siblings
  • Question 9
    30 seconds
    Q. How many proteins do homozygous genes create?
    answer choices
    They are different
    One protein
    Two proteins
    Three proteins
  • Question 10
    45 seconds
    Q. How does sexual reproduction result in a variation among offspring?
    answer choices
    Organisms usually inherit their traits from the parent that lives in the same environment.
    Each gene version provides a unique set of instructions to make a protein.
    Protein molecules interact with other protein molecules.
    Each parent randomly passes on one of its two copes of each gene to its offspring.
  • Question 11
    30 seconds
    Q. How do the proteins determine traits in organisms?
    answer choices
    They give instructions to the genes
    It depends on how they connect with other proteins
    The trait depends on what environment the organism lives in. 
    The organism inherits its genes through sexual reproduction.
  • Question 12
    30 seconds
    Q. What does heterozygous gene versions mean?
    answer choices
    The two copies of a gene for each feature can be the different versions.
    The two copies of a gene for a feature can be the same version.
    The two copies of a gene are used for an organisms feature.
    The two copies of a gene provide instructions for one protein.
