MCAT DIRECTIONS: Most of the questions in the following test are organized into groups, with a descriptive passage preceding each group of questions. Study the passage, then select the single best answer to each question in the group. Some of the questions are not based on a descriptive passage; you must also select the best answer to these questions. If you are unsure of the best answer, eliminate the choices that you know are incorrect, then select an answer from the choices that remain. Indicate your selection by blackening the corresponding circle on your answer sheet. A periodic table is provided below for your use with the questions.

Passage I (Questions 1–6) It has been proposed that the nervous tissue of the electric eel, Electrophorus electricus, may be useful in the repair of damaged nerves in humans. To isolate the various subcellular structures within the nerve cells of Electrophorus electricus, a researcher uses rate-zonal centrifugation. This technique separates the various subcellular structures by size and density. After centrifugation, the large dense structures typically form a pellet at the bottom of the test tube, while the lighter, less dense structures remain suspended in the supernatant (the fluid layer). By centrifuging at different speeds and durations, different organelles can be isolated. The eel nerve cells are suspended in a 0.25 M
