comprehensive part, do NOT memorize specific details, but try to think about the broader concepts. For example, do not memorize all the specifics of every stage of mitosis or meiosis, but think about the main purposes of these processes. Do not memorize when or how much carbon dioxide is produced in cellular respiration, but think about why we undergo cellular respiration. Do not memorize each specific step of translation, but instead understand that translation is the process of building a protein composed of amino acids using the information originally stored in DNA. Several comprehensive questions from a previous final are given here ( answers are right after question #16 on this document ). All comprehensive questions are written by Dr. Thoma. As with the other sample exam questions, these are not all inclusive – not all topics are represented here . Use these questions as a guide, not as your sole means of study. Tips for studying for the comprehensive part of the final are at the end of this document. Also use your midterms and the sample midterms as study tools. 1. Cellular respiration involves a. conversion of carbon dioxide to energy rich molecules such as glucose b. extraction of energy locked up in electrons of energy-rich molecules to produce ATP c. consumption of ATP d. movement of high energy molecules between the nucleus and the cytoplasm e. transportation of oxygen from the tissues to the lungs 2. One purpose of mitosis is to a. make gametes d. make a haploid cell diploid b. increase cell number of an organism e. all of the above are correct c. make a diploid cell haploid 3. A cell that is actively synthesizing protein is likely to have abundant a. mitochondria d. peroxisomes b. chloroplasts e. plasma membrane c. ribosomes 4. Which of the following IS NOT a function of lipids in animals? a. membrane structure d. transfer of genetic information b. hormones e. myelin sheath c. energy source 5. Black fur in mice (B) is dominant to brown fur (b). Short tails (T) is dominant to long tails (t). Assume the genes for fur color and tail length are on different chromosomes in mice. What fraction of the progeny in the cross BbTt x BBtt will have black fur and short tails? a.
