In the scantron, please mark 1 under K in “Special Codes”. Return both your scantron and this form with your name to me, Good luck! 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) 7) A student in your class makes the following analogy about cell division: cell division is like making a photocopy of the entire blueprint of a completed building and then giving the copied blueprint to another contractor to build a completely new building. Is this an accurate analogy?? a) Yes. Cells replicate their DNA (their blueprint) and then use that newly copied DNA to construct an entire new cell. b) No. A cell does not replicate all of its DNA (their blueprint) prior to cell division; only the DNA that codes for the cellular machinery and structure of that particular cell is copied. c) The analogy is only partially accurate. Cells replicate all of their DNA (the blueprint) prior to cell division, but this DNA is not used to construct an entire new cell. Rather, components of the original parent cell are divided equally between the two daughter cells. d) None of the above What is the relationship between genes and chromosomes? a) Chromosomes are proteins that carry genes made of DNA. b) Genes are the proteins encoded by chromosomes. c) Genes are the proteins around which DNA chromosomes are packaged. d) A chromosome is a DNA molecule with many genes. Meiosis a) allow chromosomes to split in half b) does not change the number of chromosomes c) duplicates the number of chromosomes at the end of the process d) Reduces the number of chromosomes in half e) Will result in two identical cells What is the function of cell division a) To reproduce in single-celled organisms. b) To keep cell size small as multicellular organisms grow. c) To make more cells in a multicellular organism. d) All of the above are functions of cell division.
