1 Premed Biology Final Review Practice Test 3Premed BiologyFinal Review
2 Question 1 A molecule of DNA contains all of the following EXCEPT: A. deoxyribose sugarsB. polypeptide bondsC. phosphodiester bondsD. nitrogenous bases
3 Question 2Which of the following is a carbohydrate polymer that is stored. in plants and digestible by animals?A. starchB. glycogenC. celluloseD. glucose
4 Question 3Excessive amounts of nitrogen are found in the urine of an individual who has experienced a period of extended fasting. This is most likely due to:A. glycogenolysis in the liver.B. the breakdown of body proteins.C. lipolysis in adipose tissue.D. a tumor on the posterior pituitary causing excessive ADH secretion
5 Question 4Penicillin interferes with peptidoglycan formation. Penicillin most likely inhibits bacterial growth by disrupting the production of: A. bacterial plasma membranes B. prokaryotic cell walls C. the bacterial nucleus D. bacterial ribosomes
6 Question 5The lipopolysaccharide layer outside the peptidoglycan cell wall of a gram negative bacterium:A. absorbs and holds gram stain.B. protects the bacterium against certain antibiotics.C. does not contain phospholipids.D. allows the bacterium to attach to solid objects.
7 Question 6 All of the following are composed of microtubules EXCEPT: A. the tail of a sperm cellB. the spindle apparatusC. the cilia of the fallopian tubesD. the flagella of bacteria
8 Question 7 In humans, most chemical digestion of food occurs in the: A. mouthB. stomachC. duodenumD. ileum
9 Question 8Essential amino acids must be ingested because they cannot be synthesized by the body. In what form are these amino acids likely to enter the blood stream? A. single amino acids B. dipeptides C. polypeptides D. proteins
10 Question 9 Salivary a-amylase begins the digestion of: A. lipids B. nucleic acidsC. proteinsD. carbohydrates
11 Question 10 One function of the large intestine is: A. to absorb water B. to secrete excess waterC. to digest fatD. to secrete urea
12 Question 11Which of the following reaction types is common to the digestion of all macronutrients?A. hydrolysisB. reductionC. glycolysisD. phosphorylation
15 Question 12Free fatty acids do not dissolve in the blood, so they must be transported within the body bound to protein carriers. The most likely explanation for this is:A. Blood is an aqueous solution and only hydrophobic compounds are easily dissolved.B. Blood is an aqueous solution and only hydrophilic compounds are easily dissolved.C. Blood serum contains chylomicrons which do not bind to fatty acids.D. Blood serum is lipid based and the polar region of a fatty acid will not be dissolved.
16 Question 13A stomach ulcer may increase the acidity of the stomach. The stomach cells most affected by a stomach ulcer are:A. goblet cellsB. parietal cellsC. chief cellsD. G cells
17 Question 14Cholera is an intestinal infection that can lead to severe diarrhea causing profuse secretion of water and electrolytes. A glucose-electrolyte solution may be administered orally to patients suffering from cholera. What is the most likely reason for mixing glucose with the electrolyte solution?A. When digested, glucose increases the strength ofthepatientB. The absorption of glucose increases the uptake ofelectrolytesC. Glucose is an electrolyteD. Glucose stimulates
18 Question 15 Carbon dioxide partial pressure: A. increases in the blood as it travels from the systemic venules to the inferior vena cava.B. increases in the blood as it travels from the pulmonary arteries to the pulmonary veins.C. is greater in the blood in the systemic capillary beds than in the alveoli of the lungs.D. .is greater in the blood in the systemic capillary beds th~Ul in the systemic tissues.
19 Question 16The net result of aerobic respiration can be summarized most accurately as:A. the oxidation of glucose.B. the reduction of glucose.C. the elimination of glucose.D. the lysis of glucose.
