Biology, The Study Of Life - Quiz

The title is no exaggeration, folks, biology truly is the study of life, and it doesn’t matter whether the living thing is big and tall or too small to even see with the naked eye, if it’s living then we’ll be looking at it when we start studying life from a scientific standpoint with biology. Do you know about life and all there is to know about the theory behind it? Take the quiz to find out!


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The basic unit of life is a(n)

    • A.

      Atom

    • B.

      Cell

    • C.

      Organism

    • D.

      Organ

    Correct Answer
    B. Cell
    Explanation
    A cell is considered as the basic unit of life because it is the smallest structural and functional unit of an organism. Cells are responsible for carrying out all the essential processes required for the survival and functioning of living organisms. They are capable of self-replication, growth, and differentiation, and they contain all the necessary components such as DNA, proteins, and organelles to perform these functions. Cells also have the ability to interact with each other and coordinate their activities, allowing for the proper functioning of tissues, organs, and ultimately, the entire organism.

    Storing and periodically releasing energy obtained from food is an example of...

    • A.

      Evolution

    • B.

      Response

    • C.

      Homeostasis

    • D.

      Growth

    Correct Answer
    D. Growth
    Explanation
    Storing and periodically releasing energy obtained from food is an example of growth because it involves the accumulation and utilization of energy to support the development and maintenance of an organism. Growth encompasses the processes of acquiring and storing nutrients, converting them into usable forms of energy, and using that energy for various physiological functions. In this case, the energy obtained from food is stored and released as needed to fuel the growth and functioning of the organism.

    A hypothesis that is supported many times may become a

    • A.

      Experiment

    • B.

      Conclusion

    • C.

      Theory

    • D.

      Observation

    Correct Answer
    C. Theory
    Explanation
    When a hypothesis is supported many times through repeated experiments and observations, it may become a theory. A theory is a well-substantiated explanation of a phenomenon that is based on a large body of evidence. It goes beyond a single observation or experiment and provides a comprehensive framework for understanding and predicting a particular aspect of the natural world. The development of a theory requires rigorous testing and validation of the hypothesis through multiple lines of evidence. Therefore, a hypothesis that is supported many times can evolve into a theory.

    All of the procedures scientists use to answer questions are

    • A.

      Life characteristics

    • B.

      Research

    • C.

      Scientific methods

    • D.

      Hypotheses

    • E.

      Stupid

    Correct Answer
    C. Scientific methods
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Scientific methods" because scientists use a systematic approach to answer questions and solve problems. They follow a series of steps, such as making observations, formulating hypotheses, conducting experiments, analyzing data, and drawing conclusions. This process is known as the scientific method and is essential for obtaining reliable and valid results in scientific research. The other options, such as "Life characteristics," "Research," "Hypotheses," and "Stupid," are not accurate explanations for the procedures scientists use.

    The environment includes

    • A.

      Air, water, and weather

    • B.

      Response to a stimulus

    • C.

      Adaptations

    • D.

      Evolution

    Correct Answer
    A. Air, water, and weather
    Explanation
    The environment includes air, water, and weather because these elements are essential components of the natural surroundings in which organisms live. Air provides the necessary oxygen for respiration, water is crucial for survival and various physiological processes, and weather conditions such as temperature and precipitation affect the availability of resources and influence the behavior and distribution of organisms. Therefore, these factors play a significant role in shaping the environment and influencing the adaptations and evolution of living organisms.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which of the following is NOT a testable hypothesis?

    • A.

      Fertilizer A will make the KW variety of green bean produce more beans.

    • B.

      Smart people like the same music.

    • C.

      Vitamin C relieves cold symptoms.

    • D.

      There is more than one species of African elephant.

    Correct Answer
    B. Smart people like the same music.
    Explanation
    The statement "Smart people like the same music" is not a testable hypothesis because it cannot be objectively measured or tested. The preferences of smart people towards music are subjective and can vary from person to person. Hypotheses should be formulated in a way that allows for empirical testing and observation.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Which plot is the control group?

    • A.

      The first plot with traditional pesticide.

    • B.

      The second plot with the new pesticide.

    • C.

      The third plot with no pesticide

    • D.

      There is no control group.

    Correct Answer
    C. The third plot with no pesticide
    Explanation
    The control group is the group that does not receive any treatment or intervention, in order to compare the effects of the treatment. In this case, the control group is the third plot with no pesticide. This is because the first plot with traditional pesticide and the second plot with the new pesticide are both receiving some form of treatment, while the third plot is the only one that is not being treated with any pesticide.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    What could be concluded if the plot treated with the new pesticide has damage similar to the control plot?

    • A.

      The experiment is a failure

    • B.

      The new pesticide may not be effective.

    • C.

      The control plot was problematic

    • D.

      The new pesticide should be used.

    Correct Answer
    B. The new pesticide may not be effective.
    Explanation
    If the plot treated with the new pesticide has damage similar to the control plot, it suggests that the new pesticide may not be effective. This is because if the pesticide was effective, it would have resulted in less or no damage compared to the control plot. Therefore, the similarity in damage indicates that the new pesticide did not have the desired effect in protecting the plants.
