Louis Pasteurs ExperimentLike many other
scientific breakthroughs, the discovery of
immunization happened by accident. In 1880
Louis Pasteur was trying to protect chickens from
cholera. To study the disease, Pasteur and his
assistants gave injections of cholera bacteria to
several groups of chickens. The chickens usually
died from cholera after being injected with the
bacteria. However, one group of chickens
survived. Pasteur noticed that these chickens had
been injected with a six-week-old batch of
cholera bacteria. Pasteurs assistants prepared
new colonies of cholera bacteria and injected
these chickens a second time. They also injected
a group of chickens that had not been previously
injected. Pasteur was surprised that the chickens
that had been injected previously with the old
bacteria remained healthy, while all the chickens
in the second group became sick and died. This
is how Pasteur came to discover that exposure to
weakened pathogens can provide immunity from
disease. The idea was later used to protect
animals from other serious diseases. Today
immunizations help protect people from many

of food coloring only at its bottom. These
observations support the theory that convection
currents in a fluid form more quickly if the
fluid has A warmer layers at the bottom B a
covering on its surface C reduced pressure on
the bottom D contact with a cooler surface
98 A glass is held upside down so
that its open end is closed by the waters
surface. Soon air bubbles begin to escape from
the glass. The best explanation for this
observation is that A water condenses on
the glass and escapes as a gas B air in the
glass increases the water temperature and causes
bubbling C pressurized water vapor rises
rapidly and evaporates D air trapped in the
glass is warmed and expands in volume

expanding to fill a larger container. What is
the ratio of the helium gass density at the
final volume to its density at the initial
volume? A 11 B 41 C 18 D 150
100 According to this information, three
of these organisms should be placed in the same
kingdom. Which organism should be placed in a
different kingdom? F Q G R H S J T
101 In the past, people thought that life
arose spontaneously out of non-living material.
This belief was based partly on the
observation that vegetable broth swarmed with
microorganisms after sitting out for a few
hours. Louis Pasteur (18221895) believed
spontaneous generation was impossible. Which
statement below would best support Pasteurs
belief? A Broth that was kept clean of
airborne dust particles shows no signs of
life after many days. B A review of other
scientists work shows that those scientists
made many observations. C If distilled
water is substituted for the broth, no
microorganisms are revealed after a few
hours. D Philosophical arguments offer no
support for spontaneous generation.
102 The smell of an ammonia solution used
to clean a floor can quickly be detected
throughout a house. Scientists explain this
phenomenon by theorizing that gas molecules
from the ammonia are in continuous random
high-speed motion, drifting rapidly
and permeating the air. Which statement best
demonstrates the strength of this theory? A
Scientists have observed tiny smoke particles
moved by unseen particles in a rapid,
irregular fashion. B Scientists have
unanimously agreed on this theory since
Thomas Grahams experiments in the 1820s. C
The possibility of another theory being formed
to explain the phenomenon as well is
very remote. D Reason, as opposed to
experimentation, is superior to any
explanation found through chemical testing.
103 An advertisement claims that patients
can be cured of the common cold in 48 hours by
vitamin C tablets with secret mineral supplements
. In a scientific experiment to test these
claims, which data can be considered
irrelevant? A The amount of vitamin C in
each tablet B The severity of the patients
cold symptoms C The chemical formula for
vitamin C D The amount of time before
symptoms improve
104 The table shows the time it took
trees of the same type and size to drop all of
their leaves after being grown in different
atmospheres. For the experiment to be valid,
which of these must be a constant for all the
trees? F The height of all the trees during
the entire experiment G The amount of water
available to all trees during the
experiment H The mass of fallen leaves
collected from each tree J The rate of
photosynthesis in all trees during the experiment
105 The graph above compares the acidity
of apples stored for 270 days under different
conditions to the acidity of apples that were
just harvested. Some apples were stored at room
temperature (20C), and other apples were
stored at 0.5C. Some of the apples were
treated with MCP, an antispoilage chemical.
According to these data, it can be inferred
that A apples treated with MCP and kept at a
low temperature retain acidity best B low
temperature prevents any loss of acidity in
stored apples C apples stored at room
temperature are unaffected by treatment with
MCP D high temperature promotes acid production
in stored apples
106 Which of the following is a strength
of this hypothesis? F It is more logical than
past hypotheses. G It agrees with the opinion
of most people. H It can be examined using
scientific means. J It challenges the current
theory of atoms.
Hypothesis A glass plate covering a tray
of water will keep water molecules from escaping
into the atmosphere. Observation After one week
the open tray was dry, but water remained in the
covered tray.
107 Which of these is a benefit of
knowing whether a person with a respiratory
infection has an elevated level of this protein
in the blood? A A set of aerobic exercises
can be recommended. B A diet of essential
nutrients can be recommended. C A decision
can be made about whether to take an x-ray. D
A decision can be made about whether to use
Research shows that levels of a certain protein
are elevated in the blood of people with a
bacterial infection. People with a
viral infection show only trace amounts of
the protein. The level of the protein can
be determined in about an hour after a blood test.
Independent Project 108 Which of
the following conclusions is supported by these
data? A Alertness is directly related to
level of distraction. B Shuffling methods can
affect alertness. C Alertness levels vary
during the day. D Long periods of rest improve

indication of alertness. Procedure 1. Shuffle a
deck of playing cards four times 2. Time how long
it takes to sort the cards into the four suits 3.
Repeat the activity at the same times for five
109 Which of these fails to support
the idea that waters natural place is on the
ground? A Hailstones B Rain C
Waterfalls D Clouds
Ancient Greeks and Science The ancient Greeks
developed a set of assumptions, based on
observations, to explain how the universe works.
These observations led the Greeks to believe that
the universe was composed of four elements
earth, water, fire, and air. The theory of
natural place was based on their observations of
these four elements. The theory stated that
anything not in its natural place would move
toward its natural place as soon as an
opportunity arose. The theory of natural place
was the foundation for the modern understanding
of the elements. The following chart describes
some observations and assumptions made by the
ancient Greeks.

folate, 400 µg of vitamin B12, and 50 mg of
vitamin B6 per day to improve cardiovascular
health. Based on this information and the
nutrition label, the cardiovascular health

insufficient folate and vitamin B6 and
lacks vitamin B12 B superb because it
contains only 22 g of carbohydrates and
75 mg of sodium C excellent because it
provides all needed vitamins and is low
in fat and cholesterol D poor because it
raises blood cholesterol levels with its
high fat and cholesterol content
