Answer: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Q7: A recent review of pay scales indicates that CEO’s now earn an average of 419 times more pay than blue-collar workers, compared to a ratio of 42 times in 1980. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Q8: The 32 species that make up the dolphin family are closely related to whales and in fact include the animal known as the killer whale, which can grow to be 30 feet long and is famous for its aggressive hunting pods. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Q9 to Q12: Over the last 150 years, large stretches of salmon habitat have been eliminated by human activity: Line mining, livestock grazing, timber (5) harvesting, and agriculture as well as recreational and urban devel- opment.

This is most evident in cases where it results in the extinction of entire salmon (15) populations.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
