Which sequence represents the order of development
for many plants?

seed germinates → plant grows
(3) seed germinates → plant grows → seed is
dispersed → seed develops inside fruit
(4) seed is dispersed → plant grows → seed
germinates → seed develops inside fruit
Which statement describes a method of sexual
reproduction that occurs in plants?
(1) Stem cuttings are placed in water and grow
(2) Seeds are produced from the flower of the
(3) Underground stems from a plant grow into
new plants.
(4) A leaf falls to the soil, develops roots, and
The diagram below shows a cross section of a
bean seed.
The function of part X in the bean seed is to
(1) provide protection for the embryo
(2) provide nutrients for the embryo
(3) prevent mutations in the plant
(4) fight off infections in the plant.
When do organs and organ systems
begin to develop in humans?

What are produced in both the male and
female reproductive systems in humans?

(4) sex cells
During which process does a caterpillar
become a butterfly?

(2) metamorphosis
(3) asexual reproduction
(4) biological adaptation
Which process is represented by the diagram

Which term is given to this pattern of
development in frogs?

In living things, traits are passed on from
one generation to the next by the
transfer of
(1) blood
(2) Calories
(3) minerals
(4) DNA
Which process involves choosing certain
organisms to reproduce with one another in
order to pass on specific, desirable traits to their
(1) selective breeding
(2) asexual reproduction
(3) resource acquisition
(4) natural selection
A Punnett square is shown below. The dominant
trait is represented by R. The recessive trait is
represented by r.
What percentage of the offspring will most
likely show the dominant trait?
(1) 25% (2) 75% (3) 50% (4) 100%
Many cells have a nucleus that contains
chromosomes. These chromosomes carry genes that
are composed of
(1) hormones
(2) DNA molecules
(3) minerals and water
(4) undigested food molecules
What model is used to show the pattern of
traits that are passed from one generation
to the next in a family?
(1) pedigree chart
(2) dichotomous key
(3) energy pyramid
(4) line graph
What are genes composed of?
(2) cells
(3) DNA
(4) traits
An organism is born with a genetic
abnormality not present in any of its
ancestors. This abnormality is most likely
the result of
(2) mutation
(3) competition
(4) respiration
In humans, a trait can be determined by
one pair or many pairs of

(3) microbes
(4) organs
The drawing below represents a pair of
The area labeled “bands” shows the location of
