    Which of the following is NOT a true statement about ATP?
    • A.

    Why do you think you and chicken liver share the same enzyme, catalase, in common? 
    • A. 

      Catalase is a bacteria that infects many types of animals, including humans and chickens.

    • B. 

      "Life" has developed certain structures over millions of years; those that have useful functions tend to be found in many different species--inherited from common ancestors.
