Vocabulary Question (iBT)
Growth, reproduction, and daily metabolism all
require an organism to expend energy. The
expenditure of energy is essentially a process of
budgeting, just as finances are budgeted. If all
of one's money is spent on clothes, there may be
none left to buy food or go to the movies.
Similarly, a plant or animal cannot squander all
its energy on growing a big body if none would be
left over for reproduction, for this is the
surest way to extinction.
The word squander in the passage is closest in
meaning to a. extend b. transform c. activate d.
waste
