Presentation on theme: "1. According to the Theory of Special Creation, species:"— Presentation transcript:
1 1. According to the Theory of Special Creation, species: A) they be immutable; them’s ain’t a changin’ nohowB) no species never gave rise to no new speciesC) They all recent, maybe 6000 years recentD) all of them there above answers is right
2 2. Which of the following best describes vestigial structures? A) Vestigial structures are functionless or rudimentary homologs of characters that are functional in close relativesB) Vestigial structures don't exist in humansC) Vestigial structures are perfectly adapted for their particular functionsD) Vestigial structures are similar structurally and functionally to comparable structures in other organisms
3 3. Homologous characters A) are similar in functionB) are known only from gross anatomy, not from any other biological featureC) show underlying structural similarity even when their superficial structure is differentD) are superficially similarE) result from convergent evolution
4 4. What constitutes evidence of the fact of evolution A) observation of species change over time, e.g. anti-biotic resistance in bacteriaB) observation of fossil series with intermediate formsC) observation of shared ancestral homologous charactersD) observation of vestigial traits, like embryonic tails and adult tail bones in humansE) all of the above
5 B) from regions with the same environment C) from transitional forms 5) The theory of descent with modification predicts that a region's extant plants and animals will be most similar to fossils __________A) from the same regionB) from regions with the same environmentC) from transitional forms
6 6) This diagram represents two sedimentary rock layers with one intrusion/dike and a set of boulders. According to the principles used by 19th-century geologists to establish the relative ages of the major rock formations of Europe, what is the correct sequence of the illustrated structures (oldest to youngest)?A) A, C, B, DB) A, C, D, BC) A, B, C, DD) C, D, A, B
