Plants and Animals Test Multiple Choice Identify the letter of the choice that best completes the statement or answers the question. 1. The following are all adaptations to life on land except A) rosette cellulose-synthesizing complexes. B) cuticles. C) tracheids. D) reduced gametophyte generation. E) seeds. 2. Each of the following is a general characteristic of bryophytes except A) a cellulose cell wall. B) vascular tissue. C) chlorophylls a and b . D) being photosynthetic autotrophs. E) being eukaryotic. 3. Of the following list, flagellated (swimming) sperm are generally present in which groups? 1. Lycophyta 2. Bryophyta 3. Angiosperms 4. Chlorophyta 5. Pterophyta A) 1, 2, 3 B) 1, 2, 4, 5 C) 1, 3, 4, 5 D) 2, 3, 5 E) 2, 3, 4, 5 4. If a fern gametophyte is a hermaphrodite (that is, has both male and female gametangia on the same plant), then it A) belongs to a species that is homosporous. B) must be diploid. C) has lost the need for a sporophyte generation. D) has antheridia and archegonia combined into a single sex organ. E) is a mutant, because fern gametophytes are always either male or female. Use the description below to answer the following questions. A biology student hiking in a northern forest happens upon an erect, 15-cm-tall plant that bears a pinecone-like structure at its tallest point. When disturbed, the cone emits a cloud of brownish dust. A pocket magnifying glass reveals the dust to be composed of tiny spheres with a high oil content. 5. Closer observation reveals that these small spheres are produced on tiny extensions of the stem, each of which helps compose the pinecone-like structure. Research would reveal that the cone-like structures are called ____, whereas the small, spore-producing extensions of the stem are called ____. A) pine cones; scales B) sori; sporangia C) strobili; sporophylls D) sporophylls; sporangia

Seeds commonly provide for each of the following except A) a choice of germination location. B) dispersal. C) dormancy. D) a nutrient supply for the embryo. E) desiccation resistance. 8. Which of the following statements is false ? A) A female pine cone is a short stem with spore-bearing appendages. B) A male pine cone is a short stem with spore-bearing appendages. C) A flower is a short stem with spore-bearing appendages. D) A strobilus is a short stem with spore-bearing appendages. E) A mature fruit is a short stem with spore-bearing appendages. The following questions refer to the generalized life cycle for land plants shown in the figure below. Each number within a circle or square represents a specific plant or plant part, and each number over an arrow represents either meiosis, mitosis, or fertilization. 9.
