11 Genetics Gregor Mendel developed several laws of heredity over the course of his genetic research. What does the first law of heredity, the law of segregation, state about genes? A.Alleles of different genes separate independently of one another during gamete formation. B.Dominant alleles are always more likely to be inherited. C.Mutations can only occur in heterozygous organisms. D.Two alleles for a trait separate when gametes are formed.

17 Ecosystems Clown fish are bright and colorful. They live in and amongst the tentacles of the sea anemone, which look like beautiful aquatic flowers, but bear poisonous stinging cells called nematocysts. A slime layer covering the clown fish makes it immune to the stinging cells, and the stinging tentacles of the sea anemone deter potential predators of the clown fish. The clown fish, in turn, protect the sea anemone from other fish that would feed on the anemone. What type of relationship do clown fish and sea anemone have with each other? A. Mutualism B. Commensalism C. Parasitism D. Environmentalism Clown fish are bright and colorful.

20 Natural Selection In the living world, there is a great deal of genetic variation. The genetic information of dogs differs from the genetic information of cats; the genetic information of plants differs from the genetic information of bacteria; your genetic information differs from your father's genetic information; and so on. Which of the following is least likely to be a source of genetic variation among living organisms? A. Meiosis B. Mutations C. asexual reproduction D. sexual reproduction In the living world, there is a great deal of genetic variation.

23 Real Numbers Lance uses the distributive property in solving the following problem: 2(x + 5) - 2(x + 7) = 2x x + 14 When x = 3, he claims that 24 is the correct answer. Which of the following is true? A. There is not enough information to answer the question. B. His assertion is false because the distributive property was applied incorrectly. C. His assertion is false because he substituted the wrong number for x. D. His assertion is true because the distributive property was applied correctly.
