Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

This is an Additional Biology Revision Paper for students doing additional biology. It covers a selection of biology topics, including cells, genetic division, respiration and organ systems. However, doing additional biology means you must know the core science topics too.

What cell organelle contains all the genetic material (DNA)?

What is the main function of bacterial flagella?

What sections of the DNA in your body contain instructions for specific proteins that your body uses?

What is the process used to test DNA from an organism?

maternity testing

paternity testing

DNA extraction

What is the DNA sequence of the human species?

the human gene

the human genome

the human structure

What does GMO stand for?

genetically made organ

genetically modified ovary

genetically modified organism

Tick two types of cell division.

miosis

meiosis

mitosis

palomitosis

How do we call an egg cell that has its original nucleus completely removed for the purpose of cloning?

denucleated

nucleoless

enucleated

Some body cells can be used to grow different parts of the human body. What are they?

steam cells

stem cells

stern cells

What is the process of making a protein from a sequence of DNA?

What is the name of a sudden change in the DNA?

How do we call biological catalysts?

Tick two factors that affect the way enzymes work.

temperature

reactor availability

pH

wind speed

What are the molecules that enzymes work on?

They type of respiration using oxygen is called ____________ respiration.

aerobic

anaerobic

What problem do climbers have at high altitudes?

air pressure is too high

air pressure is too low

temperatures are too high

How do we call the type of respiration that does not use oxygen?

Inside what plant cell organelle does photosynthesis take place?

Tick three factors that affect the rate of photosynthesis.

temperature

oxygen concentration

carbon dioxide concentration

pH

light intensity

plant cell availability

More light means the rate of photosynthesis will increase.

true

false

true but not always

  • Question 1

What cell organelle contains all the genetic material (DNA)?

CORRECT ANSWER
nucleus
EDDIE SAYS
The nucleus contains all the genetic material (DNA).
  • Question 2

What is the main function of bacterial flagella?

CORRECT ANSWER
movement
EDDIE SAYS
Flagella are used by bacteria for movement.
  • Question 3

What sections of the DNA in your body contain instructions for specific proteins that your body uses?

CORRECT ANSWER
genes
EDDIE SAYS
Genes contain instructions for specific proteins that your body uses.
  • Question 4

What is the process used to test DNA from an organism?

CORRECT ANSWER
DNA extraction
EDDIE SAYS
DNA extraction is used when an organism's DNA must be identified. Maternity and paternity tests include DNA extraction before the tests are done.
  • Question 5

What is the DNA sequence of the human species?

CORRECT ANSWER
the human genome
EDDIE SAYS
The human genome is the DNA sequence of the human species.
  • Question 6

What does GMO stand for?

CORRECT ANSWER
genetically modified organism
EDDIE SAYS
GMO stands for genetically modified organism.
  • Question 7

Tick two types of cell division.

CORRECT ANSWER
meiosis
mitosis
EDDIE SAYS
Mitosis and meiosis are the two types of cell division.
  • Question 8

How do we call an egg cell that has its original nucleus completely removed for the purpose of cloning?

CORRECT ANSWER
enucleated
EDDIE SAYS
An egg cell that has its original nucleus completely removed prior to cloning is an enucleated egg cell.
  • Question 9

Some body cells can be used to grow different parts of the human body. What are they?

CORRECT ANSWER
stem cells
EDDIE SAYS
Stem cells are used to grow different parts of the human body.
  • Question 10

What is the process of making a protein from a sequence of DNA?

CORRECT ANSWER
transcription
EDDIE SAYS
The process of making a protein from a sequence of DNA is called transcription.
  • Question 11

What is the name of a sudden change in the DNA?

CORRECT ANSWER
mutation
EDDIE SAYS
A mutation is a sudden change in the DNA.
  • Question 12

How do we call biological catalysts?

CORRECT ANSWER
enzymes
EDDIE SAYS
Enzymes are biological catalysts.
  • Question 13

Tick two factors that affect the way enzymes work.

CORRECT ANSWER
temperature
pH
EDDIE SAYS
Temperature and pH are two factors that affect the work of enzymes.
  • Question 14

What are the molecules that enzymes work on?

CORRECT ANSWER
substrate
EDDIE SAYS
Enzymes work on molecules called substrate molecules.
  • Question 15

They type of respiration using oxygen is called ____________ respiration.

CORRECT ANSWER
aerobic
EDDIE SAYS
Aerobic respiration uses oxygen.
  • Question 16

What problem do climbers have at high altitudes?

CORRECT ANSWER
air pressure is too low
EDDIE SAYS
At high altitudes air pressure is too low and it is hard for the cells to get oxygen.
  • Question 17

How do we call the type of respiration that does not use oxygen?

CORRECT ANSWER
anaerobic
EDDIE SAYS
Anaerobic respiration does not use oxygen.
  • Question 18

Inside what plant cell organelle does photosynthesis take place?

CORRECT ANSWER
chloroplast
EDDIE SAYS
Photosynthesis takes place in the chloroplasts.
  • Question 19

Tick three factors that affect the rate of photosynthesis.

CORRECT ANSWER
temperature
carbon dioxide concentration
light intensity
EDDIE SAYS
Temperature, carbon dioxide concentration and light intensity are the three limiting factors for photosynthesis.
  • Question 20

More light means the rate of photosynthesis will increase.

CORRECT ANSWER
true but not always
EDDIE SAYS
The statement is true but not always. If there is enough light but not carbon dioxide the rate of photosynthesis will decrease.
