Unformatted text preview: 1 1) Members of two different species possess a similar- looking structure that they use in a similar fashion to perform the same function. Which information would best help distinguish between an explanation based on homology versus one based on convergent evolution? A) The two species share many proteins in common, and the nucleotide sequences that code for these proteins are almost identical. B) Both species reproduce sexually. C) Both species are well adapted to their particular environments. D) The sizes of the structures in adult members of both species are similar in size. E) The two species live at great distance from each other. 1) Members of two different species possess a similar- looking structure that they use in a similar fashion to perform the same function.

B) individuals adapt to their environments and, thereby, evolve. C) the best-adapted individuals tend to leave the most offspring. D) populations tend to produce more individuals than the environment can support. E) individuals who survive longer tend to leave more offspring than those who die young. 2) Natural selection is based on all of the following except A) genetic variation exists within populations.
