    • D. 

      The letters above organism B represent members of a single large population with much biodiversity

  • 4. 
    An evolutionary pathway is represented below. Which statement about evolutionary pathways is most accurate
    • A. 

      All evolutionary pathways show that life began with autotrophic organisms that soon evolved into heterotrophic organisms.

    • B. 

      Two organisms on the same branch of an evolutionary pathway are more closely related to each other than to those on distant branches.

    • C. 

      All the organisms shown at the ends of evolutionary pathway branch tips are alive today.

    • D. 

      Evolutionary pathways show that evolution is a short-term process.

  • 5.

    • A. 

      Evolution always results in favorable traits.

    • B. 

      Evolution does not always result in a species that will survive to present time.

    • C. 

      Evolution leads to less complex organisms.

    • D. 

      Evolution results in the same changes in all species.

  • 6.
