Dolly the Sheep was one of the first examples of a mammalian clone. Dolly was made by taking the nucleus out of a body cell from an adult sheep and inserting it into an egg that had its nucleus removed. The egg cell was then stimulated to divide into an embryo. This embryo was then implanted into a third sheep, which gave birth to Dolly. Which sheep is Dolly a clone of?
  1. The adult sheep that the body cell came from
  2. The sheep that the egg cell came from
  3. The sheep that gave birth to Dolly

  1. bacteria, fish, mammals
  2. bacteria, mammals, fish
  3. fish, bacteria, mammals
  4. mammals, fish, bacteria
