      A pop singer

    • D.

      None of the above.

    Correct Answer

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Cells are not living things.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Cells are indeed living things. They are the basic structural and functional units of all living organisms. Cells have the ability to grow, reproduce, respond to stimuli, and carry out metabolic activities. They are considered the building blocks of life and are responsible for the maintenance and functioning of living organisms. Therefore, the statement "Cells are not living things" is incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Are plants cells different from animal cells?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    The animal cell is distinct from plant cells, as they lack cell walls and chloroplasts.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    How do cells reproduce?

  • 5. 

    What is DNA short for?

    Correct Answer
    Deoxyribonucleic acid
    Explanation
    DNA is short for Deoxyribonucleic acid. It is a molecule that carries the genetic instructions used in the growth, development, functioning, and reproduction of all known living organisms. DNA is composed of two long strands twisted into a double helix shape, made up of nucleotides containing a sugar (deoxyribose), a phosphate group, and one of four nitrogenous bases (adenine, thymine, cytosine, or guanine). The sequence of these bases forms the genetic code, which determines the characteristics and traits of an organism.

  • 6. 

    DNA doesn't not controls your cells.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    DNA does control your cells. DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, contains the genetic instructions that determine the development, functioning, and characteristics of living organisms. It carries the information needed for the synthesis of proteins, which are essential for the structure and function of cells. Through processes like transcription and translation, DNA controls the production of proteins that regulate cellular activities, such as metabolism, growth, and reproduction. Therefore, the statement "DNA doesn't control your cells" is incorrect, making the correct answer "True."

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Is an egg a cell?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    • C.

      Half-half.

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    Yes, an egg is a cell. In biology, an egg is the female reproductive cell or gamete. It is produced by the female reproductive system and is capable of fertilization by a sperm cell to initiate the process of reproduction. Therefore, an egg is considered a cell.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    How many times can a cell divide?

    • A.

      200

    • B.

      5000

    • C.

      70,000

    • D.

      100,000

    • E.

      Infinity

    • F.

      None of the above.

    Correct Answer
    E. Infinity
    Explanation
    A cell can divide indefinitely through a process called mitosis. Mitosis is the process by which a single cell divides into two identical daughter cells. This process allows for growth, repair, and the production of new cells in the body. Therefore, there is no limit to the number of times a cell can divide, making the correct answer "Infinity".

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    This is the last question.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
