Grade 10 :: Evolution by Drv00d00
During a study session about evolution, one of your fellow students remarks, "The giraffe stretched
its neck while reaching for higher leaves; its offspring inherited longer necks as a result." Which
statement is most likely to be helpful in correcting this student's misconception?
  1. Characteristics acquired during an organism's life are generally not passed on through genes.
  2. Spontaneous mutations can result in the appearance of new traits.
  3. Only favorable adaptations have survival value
  4. Disuse of an organ may lead to its eventual disappearance.
  5. If the giraffes did not have to compete with each other, longer necks would not have been passed on to the next generation.

  1. the plant with the largest leaves
  2. a plant with a compact root system
  3. the plant with the largest root system
  4. a plant with needles instead of leaves

A population of salamanders that live in a river require clear, fresh water to survive. A flood causes tons of sediment to be suspended in the river. Which of these MOST LIKELY will happen to the salamander population?
HINT : EVOLUTION
  1. the salamanders will adapt to life on land
  2. the salamanders will move to another river
  3. the salamanders will adapt to living in the muddy water
  4. the salamanders will decrease in number because of the water quality
Grade 4 :: Evolution by TracieMoore
An organism's ability to adapt to environmental changes is called
  1. thriving
  2. habitat destruction
  3. accomodation
  4. endangered
Grade 10 :: Evolution by MarcBeinder
The papaya mealybug is a pest that poses a threat to many tropical plants. Which fate of the mealybug would result from the inability of the species to reproduce?
HINT : EVOLUTION
  1. The species would mutate
  2. The species would increase
  3. The species would become extinct
  4. The species would continue to thrive
Grade 10 :: Evolution by jlovering
Which of the following directly contributed to Darwin's development of the theory of evolution?
  1. The discovery of natural selection by Alfred Wallace
  2. The death of his daughter due to illness
  3. Changing wing color in peppered moths.
  4. Studying the beaks of finches from the Galapagos
  5. The election of Abraham Lincoln
Grade 10 :: Evolution by jlovering
All of the following provide evidence for common ancestry of species EXCEPT:
  1. Morphological similarity
  2. Similarity in Genes and DNA
  3. Transitional Fossils
  4. Pattern of the appearance of traits in the fossil record
  5. The presence of modern species in the earliest fossils
Grade 10 :: Evolution by jlovering
You often hear people refer to evolution as "just a theory". What misconception do people who say this MOST LIKELY have?
  1. They think a theory is just a guess, but in science a theory has a lot of evidence and is considered true by most experts.
  2. They think evolution is about the big bang
  3. They think animals evolved but most biologists disagree
  4. They think microevolution is true but macroevolution is impossible
  5. They don't have a misconception because evolution is "just a theory".
Grade 10 :: Evolution by PMISIAS
How can temporal isolation lead to speciation?
  1. If two populations do not like each other, this may lead to the formation of a separate species
  2. If two populations reproduce in different ways, this may lead them to become separate species
  3. If two populations are separated by a geographic barrier, this will cause them to reproduce with other members of their own species which may them to become separate species
  4. If two populations reproduce at different times, they are unlikely to reproduce with each other which may cause them to become separate species
Grade 8 :: Evolution by sharrik
