16 A method called Gram staining is used to tell what shape a prokaryote has.how a prokaryote obtains energy.what kind of cell wall a prokaryote has.whether a prokaryote has flagella.
17 Which of the following describes a role of bacteria in the environment? carrying out photosynthesisrecycling nutrientsfixing nitrogenall of the above
18 Bacteria are sometimes called nature’s recyclers because they undergo conjugation.break down nutrients in dead matter.can switch between respiration and fermentation.carry out photosynthesis.
19 Bacteria that break down the nutrients in dead matter into simpler substances that are taken up by plant roots are calledendospores.flagella.photoautotrophs.decomposers.
20 Nitrogen fixation involves each of the following EXCEPT soybeans.Rhizobium.fertilizer.nodules on roots.
21 Which of the following is produced when bacteria break down complex compounds in sewage? carbon dioxide gaspurified waternitrogenall of the above
22 Humans use bacteria to clean up small oil spills. mine minerals from the ground.synthesize drugs.all of the above
23 Bacteria living in extreme environments may be a good source of antibiotics.heat-stable enzymes.nitrogen-fixing bacteria.Gram stains.
24 The outer protein coat of a virus is called a DNA core.capsid.bacteriophage.tail sheath.
25 All viruses are made of proteins and nucleic acids.prophages.bacteriophages.endospores.
26 A viral capsid functions to bind the virus to the surface of a host cell.transcribe viral genes.force a host cell to make copies of the virus.destroy a host cell.
27 The instructions for making new copies of a virus are a part of a virus’s capsid.coded in surface proteins attached to the protein coat.coded in either RNA or DNA.found only in bacteriophages.
28 What is the basic structure of a virus? DNA or RNA surrounded by a protein coata capsid surrounded by a protein coata tail sheath surrounded by tail fibersa tiny cell surrounded by a cell wall
29 Viruses are all about the same size. vary greatly in size and structure.rarely contain DNA or RNA.can be seen with a basic compound light microscope.
30 A lytic infection concludes with the embedding of viral DNA into the host cell’s DNA.production of a prophage.bursting of the host cell.production of messenger RNA.
31 A prophage is made of bacteriophages. carbohydrates. capsid proteins. viral DNA.
32 Bacteriophages infect other viruses.bacteria only.any available host cell.cells undergoing the lytic cycle.
33 Unlike lytic viruses, lysogenic viruses do NOT inject their genetic material into the host cell.enter the lytic cycle.lyse the host cell right away.infect host cells.
34 During a lytic infection, the host cell is destroyed.prepared for the lysogenic cycle.copied many times over.all of the above
35 Which of the following is a way that bacteria cause disease? by capsidsby nitrogen fixationby conjugationby releasing toxins
36 Bacteria that cause disease are called viruses.pathogens.endospores.antibiotics.
37 A bacterial infection results when bacteria break down the body’s tissues.lyse following the lytic cycle.live as obligate aerobes in the absence of oxygen.undergo conjugation inside the body.
38 Which of the following diseases is NOT caused by a bacterium? tooth decaytuberculosisAIDSLyme disease
39 Food stored in a refrigerator will keep longer because the bacteria that spoil food die at low temperatures.take longer to multiply at low temperatures.require light to live.grow more slowly in the dark.
40 Which of the following is a characteristic of bacteria that is key to keeping them under control? Most bacteria cannot survive high temperatures for long periods.Most bacteria are resistant to harmful chemicals.Most bacteria form endospores when subjected to harsh conditions.Most bacteria do not cause food to spoil.
41 Which of the following will NOT kill bacteria? refrigerationboilingchemical disinfectionfrying
42 Which of the following is a proper use of disinfectants? as an antibioticto start conjugationto sterilize a hospitalto preserve foods
43 Which of the following is NOT a viral disease? botulismAIDSmeaslespolio
44 Viral diseases can betreated with antibiotics and prevented with vaccines.treated with vaccines and prevented with antibiotics.prevented with antibiotics but not treated with vaccines.prevented with vaccines but not treated with antibiotics.
45 Plant viruses have a difficult time entering the cells they infect partly because plant viruses are weaker than animal viruses.plant cells have tough cell walls.many plant viruses are spread by insects.plant viruses do not have a protein coat.
46 Viruses cause disease by producing toxins that harm the body.reproducing independently inside the body.forming endospores in the body.disrupting the body’s normal equilibrium.
