    • D.

      None of the above.

    Correct Answer
    B. To allow some but not all things through the cell membrane.
    Explanation
    "Selectively permeable" refers to the property of a cell membrane that allows certain substances to pass through while preventing others from doing so. This means that the cell membrane acts as a barrier, selectively choosing which molecules or ions can enter or exit the cell. This process is crucial for maintaining homeostasis and regulating the internal environment of the cell.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    True or False: Passive Transport requires energy.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Passive transport is a type of cellular transport that does not require energy. It is the movement of molecules or ions across a cell membrane from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration. This process occurs through diffusion, osmosis, or facilitated diffusion. Unlike active transport, which requires the use of energy in the form of ATP, passive transport relies on the natural kinetic energy of the particles themselves. Therefore, the statement "Passive Transport requires energy" is false.

    Cold blooded animals keep a constant body temperature.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Cold-blooded animals do not keep a constant body temperature. Unlike warm-blooded animals, such as mammals and birds, cold-blooded animals, like reptiles and amphibians, rely on external sources of heat to regulate their body temperature. They are unable to generate internal heat and their body temperature fluctuates with the temperature of their environment. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Which one of the following is a group of invertebrates?

    • A.

      Annelids

    • B.

      Octopi

    • C.

      Amphibians

    • D.

      Snakes

    Correct Answer
    A. Annelids
    Explanation
    Annelids is the correct answer because they are a group of invertebrates. Annelids are a phylum of segmented worms that includes earthworms, leeches, and polychaetes. They lack a backbone or vertebral column, which is a characteristic of invertebrates. Octopi, amphibians, and snakes, on the other hand, are not invertebrates. Octopi are cephalopods, amphibians are vertebrates, and snakes are reptiles.

    Why are algae blooms bad for the water.

    • A.

      It makes the water purple.

    • B.

      It is not bad.

    • C.

      It blocks sunlight from reaching SAV's.

    • D.

      None of the above.

    Correct Answer
    C. It blocks sunlight from reaching SAV's.
    Explanation
    Algae blooms are bad for the water because they block sunlight from reaching submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV's). Sunlight is essential for photosynthesis, which is the process that SAV's use to produce oxygen and provide habitat for aquatic organisms. When algae blooms cover the surface of the water, they prevent sunlight from penetrating the water column, leading to a decrease in oxygen levels and disrupting the ecosystem. This can result in the death of SAV's and other aquatic organisms, leading to a decline in water quality and biodiversity.

    Symbiosis is a close relationship between two organisms where both are harmed.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because symbiosis is a close relationship between two organisms where at least one of them benefits. In some cases, both organisms can benefit, while in others, one organism benefits while the other is unaffected or harmed. Therefore, symbiosis does not always result in harm to both organisms involved.

    Why do animals adapt?

    • A.

      To survive.

    • B.

      They don't.

    • C.

      To produce more carbon dioxide.

    • D.

      None of the above.

    Correct Answer
    A. To survive.
    Explanation
    Animals adapt in order to survive. This is because the environment is constantly changing, and animals need to adjust to these changes in order to increase their chances of survival. Adaptations can include physical changes, behavioral changes, or physiological changes that help animals better cope with their surroundings and increase their chances of finding food, avoiding predators, or reproducing successfully. By adapting, animals are able to increase their chances of survival and pass on their genes to future generations.

    Food energy is passed through different organisms through a ....

    • A.

      Diffusion Web

    • B.

      Osmosis Web

    • C.

      Food Web

    • D.

      Food Chain

    Correct Answer
    D. Food Chain
    Explanation
    Food energy is passed through different organisms through a food chain. A food chain is a linear sequence in which each organism is eaten by the next organism in line. It starts with a producer, such as plants, which convert sunlight into food energy through photosynthesis. The primary consumers, such as herbivores, eat the producers, and then the energy is transferred to the secondary consumers, such as carnivores, who eat the primary consumers. This transfer of energy continues through the chain, with each organism being a source of energy for the next organism.

    What is a first level consumer?

    • A.

      A consumer that eats producers.

    • B.

      A consumer that eats animals.

    • C.

      A synonym for carnivore.

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. A consumer that eats producers.
    Explanation
    A first level consumer is a type of organism that directly feeds on producers, which are plants or other autotrophic organisms that produce their own food through photosynthesis. This means that the first level consumer obtains its energy and nutrients by consuming plants or algae. This is different from a consumer that eats animals, which would be a second or higher level consumer. The term "synonym for carnivore" is not accurate as carnivores can be consumers at any trophic level, not just the first level.

      A place in the desert.

    • C.

      Animals living together.

    • D.

      A community of biotic and abiotic factors.

    Correct Answer
    D. A community of biotic and abiotic factors.
    Explanation
    An ecosystem refers to a community of living organisms (biotic factors) interacting with their non-living environment (abiotic factors). It is a complex network where plants, animals, and microorganisms coexist and depend on each other for survival. This includes interactions such as food chains, energy flow, and nutrient cycling. The correct answer states that an ecosystem is a community of biotic and abiotic factors, which accurately captures the essence of an ecosystem and its components.

    What does removing one organism do to an environment?

    • A.

      Creates osmosis.

    • B.

      Messes up the food chain.

    • C.

      Makes the sun brighter.

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Messes up the food chain.
    Explanation
    Removing one organism from an environment can have a significant impact on the food chain. Each organism plays a specific role in the ecosystem, and their removal can disrupt the balance of energy flow and nutrient cycling. This disruption can lead to a domino effect, affecting other organisms that depend on the removed organism for food or as a predator. Ultimately, it can cause a ripple effect throughout the entire ecosystem, resulting in a breakdown of the food chain and potentially causing negative consequences for other organisms within the environment.

    True or False: Wind is an abiotic factor.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Wind is considered an abiotic factor because it is a non-living component of the environment. Abiotic factors are physical or chemical factors that affect living organisms but are not themselves alive. Wind, being the movement of air, can greatly influence the environment by affecting temperature, humidity, and dispersal of seeds and pollen. It is not a living organism and does not possess biological characteristics, hence it is classified as an abiotic factor.

    • B.

      To clean the bay.

    • C.

      To create beaches

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. To clean the bay.
    Explanation
    The oysters' niche in the Chesapeake Bay is to clean the bay. Oysters are filter feeders, meaning they extract nutrients and particles from the water as they feed. This process helps to improve water quality by removing excess nutrients and sediment. Oysters play a crucial role in maintaining the health and balance of the ecosystem by filtering the water and reducing pollution levels. They are considered natural water purifiers and their presence is essential for the overall cleanliness and well-being of the Chesapeake Bay.
