Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    Which enzyme adds the poly-A tail to the end of the primary transcript?
    • A. 

      Poly- A helicase

    • B. 

      RNA polymerase

    • C. 

      Poly-A polymerase

  • 2. 
    Why is it important for DNA to stay in the nucleus?
    • A. 

      DNA could become damaged in the cytoplasm, leading to the death of the cell, which could in turn cause the death of the organism

    • B. 

      DNA cannot exit the nucleus because it is unable to break through the nuclear membrane

    • C. 

      DNA does not stay in the nucleus. It exits through the nuclear membrane to carry the genetic information to the ribosomes so that protein synthesis may continue.

  • 3. 
    Each nucleotide codes for a specific amino acid.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 4. 
    There is more than one possible code for each amino acid.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 5. 
    The purpose of the genetic code is to transfer genetic information from proteins to RNA.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 6. 
    In RNA, adenine bonds with uracil.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 7. 
    What are the 3 types of RNA?
    • A. 

      Messenger RNA, transfer RNA and ribosomal RNA

    • B. 

      Messenger RNA, translate RNA and ribosomal RNA

    • C. 

      Messenger RNA, transfer RNA and reticulum RNA

  • 8. 
    The role of tRNA is to:
    • A. 

      Transport amino acids to the ribosome during protein synthesis

    • B. 

      Transport amino acids to the ribosome after protein synthesis

    • C. 

      Transport amino acids to the ribosome before protein synthesis
