Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The stages of life that all living organisms go though is known as what?

    • A.

      Life Pyramid

    • B.

      Life Cycle

    • C.

      Life Square

    • D.

      Life Cereal

    Correct Answer
    B. Life Cycle
    Explanation
    The stages of life that all living organisms go through is known as a life cycle. This refers to the sequence of developmental changes and growth that an organism undergoes from birth or hatching until it reaches maturity and eventually dies. The life cycle typically includes stages such as birth, growth, reproduction, and death, and varies depending on the organism.

    In a human, what would be next stage in development after an infant?

    • A.

      Teenager

    • B.

      Senior

    • C.

      Toddler

    • D.

      Young Adult

    Correct Answer
    C. Toddler
    Explanation
    The next stage in human development after an infant is a toddler. Toddlers are typically between the ages of 1 and 3 years old and are known for their rapid physical and cognitive growth. During this stage, children start to develop their motor skills, language abilities, and independence. They begin to walk, talk, and explore their surroundings more actively. This period is marked by significant milestones such as learning to feed themselves, toilet training, and increased social interaction with others.

    Butterflies go through metamorphasis, a type of life cycle.  What phase of life would come after egg?

    • A.

      Adult

    • B.

      Larva

    • C.

      Crysalis

    • D.

      Death

    Correct Answer
    B. Larva
    Explanation
    After the egg stage, butterflies go through the larva phase. During this phase, the butterfly is in the form of a caterpillar, which eats and grows rapidly. This is followed by the chrysalis phase, where the caterpillar transforms into a pupa. Finally, the adult phase comes after the chrysalis, where the butterfly emerges and is able to reproduce. Therefore, the correct answer is larva.

    What is the proper order of a cell's life cycle?

    • A.

      Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase

    • B.

      Prophase, Anaphase, Metaphase, Telophase

    • C.

      Anaphase, Metaphase, Telophase, Prophase

    • D.

      Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase, Prophase

    Correct Answer
    A. Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase
    Explanation
    The proper order of a cell's life cycle is Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase. During Prophase, the chromosomes condense and the nuclear envelope breaks down. In Metaphase, the chromosomes align in the middle of the cell. Anaphase is characterized by the separation of sister chromatids and their movement towards opposite poles of the cell. Finally, in Telophase, the nuclear envelope reforms and the chromosomes decondense.

    In mitosis, in which step does the cell membrane split into two new parts?

    • A.

      Prophase

    • B.

      Metaphase

    • C.

      Anaphase

    • D.

      Telophase

    Correct Answer
    D. Telophase
    Explanation
    In telophase, the cell membrane splits into two new parts, forming two separate daughter cells. During this phase of mitosis, the chromosomes have already reached opposite poles of the cell, and the nuclear envelope begins to reform around each set of chromosomes. The cell membrane then undergoes cytokinesis, dividing the cytoplasm and organelles between the two daughter cells. Therefore, telophase is the correct answer as it is the step in which the cell membrane splits into two new parts.
