Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Animal cells are prokaryotic.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Animal cells have one thing in common. They are all eukaryotic cells, meaning a nucleus is present.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Nucleoli are RNA rich areas which produce ______________. 

    Correct Answer
    ribosomes
    Ribosomes
    Explanation
    Nucleoli are specialized regions within the nucleus of a cell that are rich in RNA. They are responsible for the production of ribosomes, which are essential cellular structures involved in protein synthesis. Ribosomes play a crucial role in translating the genetic information encoded in mRNA into functional proteins. Therefore, the correct answer is ribosomes.

  • 3. 

    What are functions of the cell membrane? 

    • A.

      Keep any substance from entering the cell.

    • B.

      The location for cellular metabolic processes.

    • C.

      Determines what may enter or exit the cell.

    • D.

      Forms the boundary of the cell.

    Correct Answer(s)
    C. Determines what may enter or exit the cell.
    D. Forms the boundary of the cell.
    Explanation
    The cell membrane has multiple functions. It forms the boundary of the cell, separating the internal environment from the external environment. It also determines what substances are allowed to enter or exit the cell, regulating the transport of molecules in and out of the cell.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Most cellular metabolic process take place in the ___________.

    Correct Answer(s)
    cytoplasm
    Cytoplasm
    Explanation
    It consists mostly of water, and substances found outside of the nucleus.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The three main areas of the cell cycle are:

    • A.

      Cytokinesis

    • B.

      Meiosis

    • C.

      Mitosis

    • D.

      Interphase

    • E.

      Anatelophase

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Cytokinesis
    C. Mitosis
    D. Interphase
    Explanation
    The three main areas of the cell cycle are cytokinesis, mitosis, and interphase. Cytokinesis is the final stage of the cell cycle where the cytoplasm divides and two daughter cells are formed. Mitosis is the process of cell division where the nucleus divides into two identical sets of chromosomes. Interphase is the longest phase of the cell cycle where the cell prepares for division by growing, replicating DNA, and carrying out normal cellular functions. Anatelophase is not a recognized term or stage in the cell cycle.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    During Interphase:

    • A.

      Cell division occurs.

    • B.

      The cell grows and prepares for division.

    • C.

      Chromatids are pulled apart and move in opposite directions.

    • D.

      The Chromatids line up in the middle of the cell.

    Correct Answer
    B. The cell grows and prepares for division.
    Explanation
    During interphase, the cell undergoes growth and prepares for division. This is the phase before actual cell division occurs. The cell replicates its DNA and organelles, ensuring that each daughter cell will receive a complete set of genetic material. It also increases in size to accommodate the upcoming division. Therefore, the statement "The cell grows and prepares for division" accurately describes the activities that take place during interphase.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    When each chromosome is replicated and exists as 2 identical copies, these copies are called _______ _________.

    Correct Answer
    sister chromatids
    Sister Chromatids
    Explanation
    When each chromosome is replicated and exists as 2 identical copies, these copies are called sister chromatids. Sister chromatids are formed during the S phase of the cell cycle, where the DNA is replicated. These identical copies are held together by a structure called the centromere. Sister chromatids are important for cell division, as they separate during mitosis or meiosis, ensuring that each daughter cell receives a complete set of chromosomes.
