The Cellular Processes Quiz! Trivia - Quiz


How much do you know about the cellular processes? Cellular processes are mediated through different actions of biological molecules through biochemical or biophysical interactions. DNA replication and repair are some of the different cellular processes. Do you know how it comes to be that an organism's offspring gets the parents' traits? This quiz will help you review what you know about cells and how they function or transport materials in and out.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    If the red dots represent salt, what type of cell movement is shown in the picture?

    • A.

      Active Transport

    • B.

      Difussion

    • C.

      Osmosis

    Correct Answer
    B. Difussion
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Diffusion. Diffusion is the movement of particles from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration. In the given picture, the red dots representing salt are spreading out evenly, indicating the movement of salt particles from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration. This process does not require any energy and occurs naturally.

    Which level of organization of life is missing from the picture?

    • A.

      Tissues

    • B.

      Unicellular

    • C.

      Organism

    • D.

      Sexual reproduction

    Correct Answer
    C. Organism
    Explanation
    The question is asking about the level of organization of life that is missing from the picture. The picture likely shows some form of organization, such as cells or tissues. However, the level of organization that is not depicted in the picture is the organism level. The organism level refers to a living individual that is made up of multiple systems and organs working together. In the picture, only a lower level of organization is shown, such as cells or tissues.

  • 3. 

    Each of these pictures represents one ______ in a multicellular organism.

    • A.

      Cell

    • B.

      Organ system

    • C.

      Organ

    • D.

      Organism

    Correct Answer
    B. Organ system
    Explanation
    Each of the pictures represents a collection of organs that work together to perform a specific function in a multicellular organism. This collection of organs is known as an organ system.

  • 4. 

    Which cell process is responsible for releasing waste?

    • A.

      Excretion

    • B.

      Digestion

    • C.

      Respiration

    • D.

      Reproduction

    Correct Answer
    A. Excretion
    Explanation
    Excretion is the correct answer because it is the cell process responsible for releasing waste. Excretion refers to the removal of metabolic waste products from the body, including carbon dioxide, urea, and excess water. This process is vital for maintaining homeostasis and ensuring the proper functioning of cells and organs. Digestion is the process of breaking down food, respiration is the process of exchanging gases, and reproduction is the process of producing offspring, none of which directly involve the release of waste products.

  • 5. 

    What TWO (2) items are true about sexual reproduction?

    • A.

      One parent's DNA is used.

    • B.

      Two parents' DNA are used.

    • C.

      Offspring are clones of parent.

    • D.

      Offspring are unique and different from parents.

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Two parents' DNA are used.
    D. Offspring are unique and different from parents.
    Explanation
    In sexual reproduction, two parents' DNA are used to create offspring. This is because sexual reproduction involves the fusion of gametes from two parents, each contributing half of the genetic material. As a result, the offspring produced through sexual reproduction inherit a unique combination of traits from both parents, making them genetically different and distinct from their parents. This genetic diversity is important for the survival and adaptation of species.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which cell process has to do with keeping homeostasis (stable, normal inside environment)?

    • A.

      Digestion

    • B.

      Respiration

    • C.

      Growth

    • D.

      Responding

    Correct Answer
    D. Responding
    Explanation
    The process of responding is closely related to maintaining homeostasis in an organism. When the internal environment of an organism is disturbed, it needs to respond in order to restore balance and stability. This can involve various mechanisms such as adjusting body temperature, regulating blood sugar levels, or responding to external stimuli. By responding to changes in the environment, cells can ensure that the internal conditions remain within a normal range, allowing the organism to function properly.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Diffusion and Osmosis are both ________ transport because they both require no energy.

    • A.

      Passive

    • B.

      Active

    • C.

      Organ

    • D.

      Homeostasis

    Correct Answer
    A. Passive
    Explanation
    Diffusion and osmosis are both considered passive transport because they do not require any energy input. In diffusion, molecules move from an area of higher concentration to an area of lower concentration, while in osmosis, water molecules move across a semi-permeable membrane from an area of lower solute concentration to an area of higher solute concentration. Both processes occur spontaneously and do not require any energy expenditure by the cell.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Both unicellular and multicellular organisms must perform the same life activities to stay alive.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Both unicellular and multicellular organisms share common life activities essential for their survival. These include processes like obtaining and using energy (metabolism), responding to their environment, reproducing to ensure the continuity of their species, and maintaining homeostasis to regulate internal conditions.

  • 9. 

    Click THREE (3) statements that are true about multicellular organisms.

    • A.

      Multicellular organisms are made of only one cell.

    • B.

      Multicellular organisms are made of 2 or more cells.

    • C.

      Multicellular are less complex (more simple) than unicellular organisms.

    • D.

      Multicellular organisms are more complex (less simple) than unicellular organisms.

    • E.

      Multicellular organisms must complete all life functions.

    • F.

      Multicellular organisms only complete a few needed life functions.

    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Multicellular organisms are made of 2 or more cells.
    D. Multicellular organisms are more complex (less simple) than unicellular organisms.
    E. Multicellular organisms must complete all life functions.
    Explanation
    Multicellular organisms are made of 2 or more cells, which means they are composed of multiple cells working together. They are more complex than unicellular organisms because they have specialized cells and tissues that perform specific functions. Additionally, multicellular organisms must complete all life functions, such as reproduction, growth, and metabolism, in order to survive and thrive.
