    A store owner uses an insecticide to eliminate cockroaches in his kitchen. Although the insecticide killed most of the cockroaches when it was first used, after several months, it no longer kills them. What process occurs that causes the insecticide to be ineffective against the cockroaches?
    • A. 

      Cloning

    • B. 

      Natural selection

    • C. 

      Speciation

    • D. 

      Succession

  • 4. 
    A population of land snails colonized a field of light-colored grasses. At first, the population contained two types of snails, one with dark shells and another with light shells. After ten years, most of the snails had light-colored shells.What process led to the increase in the number of snails with light-colored shells?
    • A. 

      Mutation

    • B. 

      Succession

    • C. 

      Natural selection

    • D. 

      Genetic engineering

  • 5. 
    An area where a population of wolves lives is getting colder. Even though the wolves do not have predators, they often die as a result of the cold temperatures. In this climate, natural selection should favor individuals that possess which of the following?
    • A. 

      White fur

    • B. 

      Thicker fur

    • C. 

      Sharp claws

    • D. 

      Blue eyes

  • 6. 
    Cleaner fish feed off of the algae, fungi, and other microorganisms that are found on the teeth of larger fish. Another species of fish, called mimics, look like cleaner fish. They are able to approach the larger fish and remove food from the teeth as well. If the mimic fish populations grow to outnumber the cleaner fish, the ________.
    • A. 

      Eating patterns of the larger fish would change or it would die.

    • B. 

      Eating patterns of the cleaner fish would change or it would die.

    • C. 

      Cleaner fish and mimic fish would interbreed and become one species.

    • D. 

      Food found on the larger fish would increase.

  • 7. 
    The mole rat is an animal that avoids predators by living underground. Its long claws and teeth allow it to dig deep holes.

      Natural selection

    • B. 

      Selective breeding

      Genetic engineering

    • D. 

      Asexual reproduction

  • 8.
