Choose the best answer for each question. Mark more than one answer ONLY when SPECIFICALLY told to do so in the question. 1. In the last redox reaction of the electron transport chain, there is a large energy drop as the electrons are transferred to oxygen. This step is not coupled to any sort of work. Why might ‘wasting’ energy in this large exergonic step be favorable for the cell? A. It can’t be favorable – it’s just that no cell has yet found a way to capture this lost energy. B. The large exergonic step can ‘pull’ electrons down the electron transport chain. C. The large exergonic step can ‘push’ the synthesis of sugars. D. The large exergonic step can ‘push’ the synthesis of ATP. E. Both C and D are correct. 2. If a reaction is spontaneous, which of the following statements is true? A. The products have lower entropy (more order). B. The products have lower potential energy. C. Energy must be added constantly for the reaction to proceed. D. The reaction proceeds quickly. E. At equilibrium, the concentration of reactants is higher than of products. 3. How does one amino acid differ from another? A. the location of the carboxyl group (-COOH) B. the location of the amino group (-NH2) C. the composition of its side chain, or R-group D. in ability to form peptide bonds E. Both A and B are correct 4. What is a transition state? A. The complex formed as covalent bonds are being broken and reformed during a reaction. B. The location on an enzyme where a reaction is catalyzed. C. An interaction between reactants that occurs at high temperatures. D. The shape taken by an enzyme when interacting with its substrate. E.
