Here is a compilation of some multiple choice questions from the Karp Web site. I may use some of them, or modify some, or add my own. They could be a guide to some of the material I will ask on the exam. Note: There are some questions that refer to materials we haven’t covered yet, but we will. There are also some questions that refer to issues we haven’t covered, and won’t. See what you can do with them. 1. All of the following individuals contributed to cell theory except: A. Robert Hooke. B. Matthias Schleiden. C. Theodor Schwann. D. Rudolf Virchow. 2. Of the following structures, which is the smallest? A. viroid B. hydrogen atom C. bacterium D. mitochondrion 4. Cell theory includes all of the following except: A. All organisms are composed of one or more cells. B. The cell is the most primitive form of life. C. The cell is the structural unit of life. D. Cells arise by division of preexisting cells. 5. All of the following are basic properties of cells except: A. Cells have nuclei and mitochondria. B. Cells have a genetic program and the means to use it. C. Cells are capable of producing more of themselves. D. Cells are able to respond to stimuli. 7.
