Title: Practice EOC Questions

Practice EOC Questions
  • Part Four
  • (61-80)

61. What is the key difference between mitosis
and meiosis during the actual process?
  • A. Both double the number of chromosomes, but in
    meiosis the cell divides twice.
  • B. In mitosis the number of chromosomes doubles
    twice and then divides.

    double, and the cell divides.

    and then the cell divides thrice.
  • The correct answer is
  • A

  • D

63. Why is sexual reproduction usually considered
more advantageous than asexual reproduction?
  • A. It maintains the same exact DNA from one
    generation to the next.

  • C. It promotes more interaction between males and
    females of the same species.
  • D. It helps maintain the chromosome number of the
  • The correct answer is
  • B

64. Many simple organisms like bacteria reproduce
asexually most of the time. What could be a
source of genetic variation for these organisms?

  • The correct answer is
  • C

65. Why are mutations, which are usually
negative, sometimes considered beneficial to an
organism or species?
  • A. They provide genetic variation.
  • B. They help to eliminate other harmful genes.
  • C. They help to increase the size of the genome.
  • D. What is harmful to one species may be
    beneficial to another.
  • The correct answer is
  • A

66. Which of the following is an advantage of
asexual reproduction?
  • A. Daughter cells are exact copies of each other.
  • B. Only one parent is involved.
  • C. Exact copies of favorable traits will be
  • D. Many clones of the mother may be produced.
  • The correct answer is
  • C

67. The allele for hemophilia is sex-linked
recessive. Mr. Perkins is a hemophiliac. Mrs.
Perkins is a carrier. What percent chance would
the Perkins offspring have of being hemophiliacs?
  • A. 0
  • B. 25
  • C. 50
  • D. 100
  • The correct answer is
  • C

68. The Johnsons have two children, Jack and
Jill. Jack has type A blood and Jill has type B
blood. Which one of these pairings could
represent the blood type of the parents?
  • A. Type A and Type O
  • B. Type AB and Type A
  • C. Type O and Type B
  • D. Answer cannot be determined from the
    information given.
  • The correct answer is
  • B

69. Scientists discovered a strain of bacteria
that is capable of digesting oil. How might
these bacteria be most helpful to scientists?
  • A. The bacteria could produce oil for fuel.
  • B. The bacteria could make new products from
  • C. The bacteria could be used to clean up oil
  • D. The bacteria could improve the quality of
  • The correct answer is
  • C

70. In a lab the stain methyl green-pyronin Y is
used to detect the presence of DNA and RNA.
Methyl green is absorbed by the DNA and stains it
blue. If you observed the a stained slide of an
onion root tip under the microscope, which
structures would you expect to be stained blue?
  • A. chloroplast
  • B. chromosome
  • C. ribosomes
  • D. nucleoli
  • The correct answer is
  • B

71. Two different bacterial strains are placed in
the same petri dish. Strain A is resistant to
the antibiotic Ampicillin while Strain B is
resistant to the antibiotic Streptomycin. Under
certain circumstances the bacteria exchange DNA.
Which experiment would best show if these two
strains exchanged DNA?
  • A. expose both strains to another antibiotic
  • B. expose both strains to Ampicillin only
  • C. expose both strains to Streptomycin only
  • D. expose both strains to both Ampicillin and
  • The correct answer is
  • D

72. Which statement best describes a plasmid?
  • A. a small circular DNA found in some bacterial
  • B. a type of DNA found in yeast cells
  • C. a small piece of DNA found in frogs
  • D. an enzyme used to cut DNA
  • The correct answer is
  • A

73. Which of the following is used to cut DNA
into fragments?
  • A. clones
  • B. recombinant DNA
  • C. vectors
  • D. restriction enzymes
