      All organisms are exactly the same as other organisms of their species

    • C. 

      There is variation of inherited traits amongst organisms

    • D. 

      Some organisms have a higher level of fitness than others in their environment

  • 3. 
    Which is the only theory of creation which science can allow itself to investigate?
    • A. 

      Theory of chemical evolution

    • B.

    • F. 

      Use time machine to go back in time and ask dinosaurs questions about lifestyle

  • 6. 
    What does geographic isolation of the same species result in?
    • A. 

      Each group evolves according to its environment, resulting in two slightly different organisms, who often refuse to mate, and therefore are different species

    • B. 

      Neither group changes at all

    • C. 

      The two groups will refuse to be isolated and immediately attempt to return to the others

    • D. 

      Each one will desire to become the best it can be, and because they understand best to be different, end up being completely different and not entirely perfect species.

  • 7. 
    What defines a species?
    • A. 

      Reproduction- a species is a group of organisms who can all mate with each other and produce fertile offspring

    • B. 

      Living in the same environment- if two organisms live in the same environment, they will adapt such that they are part of the same species

    • C. 

      Evolutionary ancestors- if two organisms came from the same ancestor, they are the same species

    • D. 

      Organisms that have similar bone structure

  • 8. 
    What determines an organism's fitness?
    • A.
