    • A. 

      Asexual reproduction is the division of one body cell, sexual reproduction is the division of a sex cell.

    • B. 

      Asexual reproduction joins two body cells, sexual reproduction joins two body cells also

    • C. 

      Asexual reproduction divides sex cells, sexual reproduction does not

    • D. 

      Asexual reproduction is one organism reproducing, sexual reproduction is the joining of two sex cells

  • 3.

      Fertilization

    • B. 

      Ovulation

    • C. 

      Menstruation

    • D. 

      Cell division

  • 4. 
    In order for an organism to survive and evolve, if there is a changing environment, it is most likely to survive if
    • A. 

      It can blend in with its surroundings

    • B. 

      It doesn't have many predators

    • C. 

      It has good characteristics and adaptations that help it survive

    • D. 

      It doesn't reproduce

  • 5. 
    If a group of organisms were all very genetically similar, would they be more likely to become extinct than if they had a lot of genetic variation?
    • A. 

      No, because their similar genes would help them survive

    • B. 

      No, because they might have good adaptations

    • C. 

      Yes, because if they all have the same genes, they wouldn't have any different adaptations that would help in a changing environment or if there was a sickness

    • D. 

      Yes, their adaptations would help them survive.

    • A. 

      They become genetically different from each other and develop into new species

    • B. 

      They might have different predators

    • C. 

      They might eat different foods

    • D. 

      The climates they live in might be different

  • 7.

    • A. 

      A lot of dominant traits

    • B. 

      A lot of recessive traits

    • C. 

      Genetic variation

    • D. 

      Different climates

  • 8. 
    The genetic differences in offspring are by

    • C. 

      Menstruation

    • D. 

      Fertilization

  • 9. 
    If an organism does not have good adaptations, will it be likely to survive and reproduce?
    • A. 

      Yes, it will pass on its dominant traits

    • B. 

      No, it will pass on its recessive traits

    • C. 

      No, it will not have many offspring that can survive, because it did not pass on good adaptations.

    • D. 

      Yes, most of its offspring will survive because its random

  • 10. 
    Darwin's theory was that evolution is more likely to take place when
    • A. 

      There are a lot of offspring

    • B.

    • C. 

      There is not a lot of offspring

    • D.
