Example Questions

Example Question #1 : Life Science

The process of plants making their own food with sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water is called __________. 

Possible Answers:

photosynthesis 

reproduction 

evolution 

adaptation 

Correct answer:

photosynthesis 

Explanation:

Plants make their own food through the process of photosynthesis. Plants convert sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water into chemical energy that is used for food. 

Example Question #2 : Life Science

Select the answer that is represented by point A on the diagram provided. 

1

Possible Answers:

Nucleolus

Cell Membrane

Nuclear Membrane

Nucleus

Correct answer:

Cell Membrane

Explanation:

There are four pieces of a cell shown on the diagram provided. 

Cell Membrane: The cell is contained by the cell membrane and it keeps all the pieces inside.  

Nucleus: The nucleus is known as the brain of a cell. The nucleus is a structure within the cell's structure. The nucleus isn't always in the middle of the cell, but it's usually not near an edge. 

Nucleolus: The nucleolus is within the nucleus, and can be thought of as the brain of the nucleus. 

Nuclear Membrane: The nuclear membrane surrounds the nucleus.
