    answer choices
    Evolution 
    Variation 
    Adaptation
    Natural Selection 
  • Question 5
    120 seconds
    Q.

    Darwin wrote that organisms with traits that are best suited to the environment will ________________

    answer choices

    reproduce

    become extinct

  • Question 6
    120 seconds
    Q. What characteristic did Darwin observe about the finches on the Galapagos Islands?
    answer choices
    Their feathers 
    Genotypes 
    Their beaks
    Their body sizes
  • Question 7
    120 seconds
    Q. Genetic differences between organisms of the same species
    answer choices
    Variation
    Adaptation
    Behavior
    Environment
  • Question 8
    180 seconds
    Q. Darwin referred to this as survival of the fittest. Over time, it results in changes in the inherited characteristics of a population because organisms with adaptations that make them fit for their environment will survive and reproduce better than those without favorable traits.
    answer choices
    Natural Selection
    Genetic Variation
    Survival of the Fittest
  • Question 9
    120 seconds
    Q. The gradual change in species over time is...
    answer choices
    Evolution
    Nucleotide 
    Adaptation
    Natural Selection

    no proteins in common
    completely different DNA sequence
  • Question 12
    900 seconds
    Q. The separation of a group of individuals from the rest of the population is referred to as 
    answer choices
    genetic drift
    natural selection
    geographic isolation
    survival of the fittest

    30 seconds
    Q. What is this an example of?
    answer choices
    vestigial structures
    embryology
    homologous structures
    fossil record

    30 seconds
    Q. The cause of artificial selection is…
    answer choices
    The environment
    Humans
    Mutation
    Gene Flow
  • Question 15
    30 seconds
    Q. Why are advantageous traits more likely to be passed onto offspring?
    answer choices
    Because they are more likely to survive and reproduce.
    Because they come from dominant alleles.
    Because they come from recessive alleles.
    Because the trait is an acquired phenotype.
