Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    If you are treated with kindness you will grow to be kind.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement suggests that being treated with kindness will inevitably result in growing to be kind. However, this is not necessarily true. While being treated with kindness can positively influence a person's behavior and attitude, it does not guarantee that they will automatically become kind. People's personalities and actions are influenced by a variety of factors, including their upbringing, values, and personal choices. Therefore, it is incorrect to assume that being treated with kindness will always lead to growing to be kind.

     If a zygote (an egg) has everything it needs it will grow normally.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If a zygote has everything it needs, it means that it has all the necessary genetic material and nutrients to support its growth and development. This includes the correct number of chromosomes and the presence of essential molecules and proteins. Therefore, it is expected that the zygote will grow normally under these conditions.

    All birth defects are caused by change in chromosome number and mutation.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is true. Birth defects can be caused by changes in the number of chromosomes or by mutations in specific genes. Changes in chromosome number can occur due to errors in cell division during the formation of sperm or egg cells, leading to an abnormal number of chromosomes in the resulting embryo. Mutations, on the other hand, are changes in the DNA sequence of genes and can occur spontaneously or be inherited from parents. Both chromosomal changes and mutations can disrupt normal development and result in birth defects.

    Cigarette smoking and alcohol do not effect developing embryo (baby in the uterus).  

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is false. Cigarette smoking and alcohol can have harmful effects on the developing embryo. Smoking during pregnancy increases the risk of premature birth, low birth weight, and developmental issues. It can also lead to complications like placental problems and miscarriage. Similarly, alcohol consumption during pregnancy can cause fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs), which can result in physical, mental, and behavioral problems in the baby. It is important for pregnant women to avoid smoking and alcohol to ensure the healthy development of the embryo.

    IQ tests are not culturally biased.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "IQ tests are not culturally biased" is false. IQ tests are often criticized for being culturally biased because they are designed based on the norms and values of a particular culture. The questions and tasks in IQ tests may require knowledge or skills that are more common or valued in certain cultures, which can disadvantage individuals from different cultural backgrounds. Therefore, it can be argued that IQ tests are culturally biased.

    Nature is most important in the development of which of the following:

    • A.

      Intelligence

    • B.

      Genetic traits

    • C.

      Political choice

    • D.

      Art appreciation

    Correct Answer
    B. Genetic traits
    Explanation
    Nature, referring to genetic factors or heredity, plays a crucial role in the development of genetic traits. Genetic traits are inherited from our parents and are determined by our DNA, which is passed down through generations. These traits can include physical characteristics, such as eye color or height, as well as certain predispositions to diseases or conditions. While other factors like environment and upbringing also contribute to our development, genetic traits are primarily influenced by our biological inheritance.

    Nuture seems to be most important in the development of which of the following

    • A.

      Genetic traits

    • B.

      Mutations or abnormality

    • C.

      Environmental factors

    • D.

      Physics

    Correct Answer
    C. Environmental factors
    Explanation
    The question asks about the most important factor in the development of certain traits. The options include genetic traits, mutations or abnormality, environmental factors, and physics. The correct answer is environmental factors because they play a crucial role in shaping an individual's development and determining their traits. Environmental factors such as nutrition, exposure to toxins, and social interactions can influence gene expression and contribute to the development of certain traits.

    Which of the following are IQ scores for gifted children/adults:

    • A.

      55-69

    • B.

      130-145

    • C.

      100-109

    • D.

      80-89

    Correct Answer
    B. 130-145
    Explanation
    IQ scores for gifted children/adults typically range from 130-145. This range indicates a high level of intelligence and is often associated with exceptional cognitive abilities. IQ scores below this range may indicate average or below-average intelligence, while scores above this range may indicate exceptional or genius-level intelligence.

    There has been research which proved there is a gene type for which of the following:

    • A.

      A. eye, hair, and skin color

    • B.

      B. behavior

    • C.

      C. the choice of religion

    • D.

      D. the way we sound when we talk

    Correct Answer
    A. A. eye, hair, and skin color
    Explanation
    Research has shown that there is a gene type that is responsible for determining eye, hair, and skin color. This means that variations in this gene can lead to different colors in these features. This finding is supported by scientific evidence and has been widely accepted in the field of genetics.

    Exposure to alcohol early in a zygote's (fertilized egg) development may lead to:

    • A.

      Genetic mutations

    • B.

      Alcohol dependency

    • C.

      Malformation of the zygote

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Exposure to alcohol early in a zygote's development can have detrimental effects on its development. It can lead to genetic mutations, which are changes in the DNA sequence that can impact the functioning of genes. Additionally, it can result in alcohol dependency, as the developing zygote may become more susceptible to the addictive properties of alcohol. Furthermore, alcohol exposure during this critical period can cause malformation of the zygote, leading to physical and developmental abnormalities. Therefore, all of the given options - genetic mutations, alcohol dependency, and malformation of the zygote - can occur as a result of early alcohol exposure.

    Immigrants in the study by Henry Goddard were termed to be:

    • A.

      Feeble minded

    • B.

      Highly intellegent

    • C.

      Motivated by their circumstances

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Feeble minded
    Explanation
    The study by Henry Goddard classified immigrants as "feeble minded." This implies that the study labeled immigrants as mentally deficient or intellectually impaired. It suggests that the study may have held negative and discriminatory views towards immigrants, assuming that they were less intelligent or capable due to their immigrant status.
