  • 1. 
    TRUE or FALSE: Homologous structures have the same function in different species.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 2. 
    Which mechanism of evolution causes a change in a POPULATION over time?
    • A. 

      Mutation

    • B. 

      Natural Selection

    • C. 

      Gene Flow

    • D. 

      Genetic Drift

  • 3. 
    Which mechanism of evolution causes the initial change in the traits of an INDIVIDUAL, adding genetic diversity?
    • A. 

      Mutation

    • B. 

      Natural Selection

    • C. 

      Gene Flow

    • D. 

      Genetic Drift

  • 4. 
    The graphs show the change in the population of fish over time. Some fish have spines (with spines) while others do not have spines (no spines). What is the trend you see over time in these graphs and how can natural selection make this occur?
    • A. 

      There's the same number of fish with no spines and with spines because natural selection produces diversity

    • B. 

      There's a higher number of fish with no spines because all of the fish mutated to have no spines

    • C. 

      There is a higher number of fish with spines over time because the fish with spines are better able to survive and reproduce

    • D. 

      There is a higher number of fish with no spines over time because the fish with no spines were better able to survive and reproduce

  • 5. 
    What can you conclude based on this drawing?
    • A. 

      Fossils in layer Q are younger than layer H

    • B. 

      Fossils in layer Q are older than layer H

    • C. 

      Fossils in layer J are older than layer I

    • D. 

      Fills in layer P are younger than layer K

  • 6. 
    These limbs provide evidence of common ancestry because they
    • A. 

      Have the same basic structure

    • B. 

      Perform the same function

    • C. 

      Are the same size

    • D. 

      Are parts of mammals

  • 7. 
    The presence of wings in bats, birds, and insects is an example of a(n):
    • A. 

      Homologous structure

    • B. 

      Vestigial structure

    • C. 

      Karyotype structure

    • D. 

      Analogous structure

  • 8. 
    Why are these considered analogous structures, not homologous structures?
    • A. 

      They have the same structure but a different purpose

    • B. 

      Even though they have the same structure, they did not have a common ancestor with that structure

    • C. 

      They have completely different structures and purposes

    • D. 

      They have a common ancestor with the same trait

  • 9. 
    What is a trait that animals and fungi have in common?
    • A.

    • B. 

      Both are autotrophs

    • C. 

      Both are heterotrophs

    • D. 

      Both are motile (can move around)

  • 10.

  • 11. 
    What's the difference between prokaryotes and eukaryotes?
    • A.

    • B. 

      Eukaryotes do not have membrane bound organelles (like a nucleus), but prokaryotes do

    • C.
