Quiz #2 Return to Assessment List Comments:  Please refer to "Quiz #2 - special" as set up by classroom support  Part 1 of 8 -  0.0/ 16.65 Points Question 1 of 30 0.0/ 3.33 Points Meiosis results in a change in chromosome number indicated by: A. 2n to 2n in  diploid organisms,  n to n in haploid  organism B. N to n C. N to 2n D. 2n to n E. 2n to 2n Answer Key: D Feedback: Meiosis results in a halving of the chromosome number from 2n (diploid) to n (haploid). Meiosis does not occur in an organism which is already haploid (such as a plant gametophyte). Question 2 of 30 0.0/ 3.33 Points In plants, cytokinesis occurs with the formation of: A. A cell plate B. A cleavage  furrow in the  nuclear  membrane C. A cleavage  furrow in the  cytoplasm D. A cleavage

furrow in the  cell wall E. Asters and  centrioles Answer Key: A Feedback: In plant cells, cytokinesis involves the formation of a new plasma membrane and cell wall at a cell plate. Question 3 of 30 0.0/ 3.33 Points During ______________, the nuclear envelope disappears, and the chromosomes become distinct. A.  Anap hase B.  Telop hase C.  Interp hase D.  Prop hase E.  Meta phas e Answer Key: D Feedback: During prophase, chromatin is condensing into visible chromosomes, and the nuclear envelope is fragmenting. Question 4 of 30 0.0/ 3.33 Points If the total number of chromosomes in parent cell is six, then after mitosis there will be: A. Three chromosomes  in each daughter cell B. Six chromosomes in  each daughter cel C. 12 chromosomes in  each daughter cell

D. Three chromosomes  in one daughter cell and  six chromosomes in the  other cell E. Two chromosomes in  each daughter cell, one  from each parent Answer Key: B Feedback: Following mitosis, daughter cells have the same chromosome count as the parent cell. Question 5 of 30 0.0/ 3.33 Points Which of the following statements about mitosis and meiosis is incorrect? A. Meiosis-two  divisions, mitosis- one division B. Meiosis-non- identical, mitosis- identical C. Meiosis- diploid, mitosis- haploid D. Meiosis-four  daughter cells,  mitosis-two  daughter cells E. Meiosis-sex  cells, mitosis- somatic cells  Answer Key: C Feedback: Meiosis produces haploid nuclei from a diploid nucleus. Mitosis does not alter the chromosome number. Part 2 of 8 -  0.0/ 16.65 Points Question 6 of 30 0.0/ 3.33 Points Which of the following is not a beneficial role that bacteria play? A. They

produce  oxygen.  B. They  produce  antibiotics.  C. They  function as  bioremediat ors.  D. They are  decomposer s.  E. They can  be used in  gene  therapy.  Answer Key: E Feedback: Viruses, not bacteria, can be used in gene therapy. Question 7 of 30
