Grade 9 :: Evolution by ericbony2
What is one important way that scientist categorize information when organizing Diversity
  1. By keeping records in the computer
  2. By DNA type
  3. Is by how long ago certain organisms shared a common ancestor

Grade 7 :: Evolution by jlovering
What are 2 organelles that scientists believe may have once been separate organisms that were incorporated into the cell (endosymbiosis)?
  1. Mitochondria and Chloroplasts
  2. Nucleus and Golgi Bodies
  3. Ribosomes and Lysosomes
  4. Vacuole and Nucleolus
  5. Eukaryotes and Prokaryotes
Grade 9 :: Evolution by ericbony2
Characteristics that represent adaptations at one point in the history of a species may cease
  1. To do so as the environment changes
  2. As the organism grow
  3. As the cells changes
  4. According to the DNA during reproduction
Grade 7 :: Evolution by mtn2ocean
A change that increases an organism's chances for survival is called a:
  1. adaptation
  2. mutation
  3. radiation
  4. homologous structure
Grade 7 :: Evolution by mtn2ocean
Another way to say, "Survival of the Fittest" is:
  1. natural selection
  2. overproduction
  3. adaptive radiation
  4. mutation
Grade 7 :: Evolution by mtn2ocean
A bat's wing and a lion's leg bones are examples of:
  1. variation
  2. homologous structures
  3. migratory effects
  4. fossils
Grade 7 :: Evolution by mtn2ocean
In the theory natural selection, species are most likely to survive if they:
  1. inherit acquired traits
  2. have variations that make them adapted to their environment
  3. overproduce
  4. are isolated
Grade 7 :: Evolution by mtn2ocean
Young embryos of different vertebrates
  1. have acquired traits
  2. have no similarities
  3. have similarities
  4. are called homologous embryos
Grade 7 :: Evolution by mtn2ocean
Which of these is NOT used as evidence of evolution?
  1. fossils
  2. embryos
  3. niche
  4. homologous structures
Grade 9 :: Evolution by McBobbo
Which of the following early hominids was the first to leave Africa?
  1. Homo Habillis
  2. Homo Erectus
  3. Homo Sapiens
  4. Homo Neanderthalensis
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.
Grade 9 :: Evolution by McBobbo
Which of the following statements regarding evolution is false?
  1. Genetic drift due to a drastic reduction of population size is called the Bottleneck Effect. This type of genetic drift decreases the genetic diversity of a species.
  2. Sexual selection is a form of natural selection in which certain organisms will be selected over others based on certain traits.
  3. Disruptive selection occurs when a genotype is completely removed from a population, causing a drop in genetic diversity of a population.
  4. Gene flow is another form of evolution alongside natural selection which results in a change in a population due to certain alleles moving in or out of a population.
Grade 10 :: Evolution by LucreciaBelen
Which one of the following statements is true?
  1. Organisms evolve structures that they need
  2. Natural selection works on variation already present in a population.
  3. Natural selection works on non-heritable traits.
  4. None of the statements are true.
  5. Individuals evolve through natural selection.
Grade 10 :: Evolution by LucreciaBelen
Which of these would Darwin not agree with?
  1. Significant weight should be given to geology and fossils as evidence of evolution
  2. The idea that individuals striving to survive leads to better adapted species
  3. Common ancestry for all of life
  4. Evolution via natural selection requires long amounts of time
Grade 7 :: Evolution by mtn2ocean
The survival and reproduction of organisms best adapted to their surrounding is called:
  1. evolution
  2. reproductive advantage
  3. adaptation
  4. natural selection
