Which of the following statements is true? Groundwater is the largest available source of freshwater. Most of Earth's water is found in lakes, rivers, and streams. Glaciers are made from frozen ocean water, so they are sources of saltwater. Most freshwater is used for public drinking and mining.

Answer: Groundwater is the largest available source of freshwater.

Ground water is a water reservoir. It accumulates in the saturated zone of the geosphere. The water accumulates when water from sources like river, lakes, ponds, rainfall, snow melt, and agricultural irrigation gets seep underground by the pores of soil and rocks. It is a largest source of freshwater, as it remains unexposed to the contamination.

-There are seven major levels of classification: Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, and Species.

-Class is the third level of classification is class. For example, Phylum Chordata has classes in it like birds, mammals (Mammalia) and reptiles. Classes are way to further divide organisms of a phylum. Organisms of a class have even more in common than those in an entire phylum.

-Organisms in each class are further broken down into orders. A taxonomy key is used to determine to which order an organism belongs.

Every single cell works like a small factory. e. Cells follow a genetic DNA blueprint to construct an organism. f. Cells are composed of different parts called organelles

Answer: All the statements that are provided here are true when a cell is taken into consideration.

Explanation: The cells are known to be the basic structure and functional unit of the body. They have their unique functions based on the different organs in which they are located.

There are some recognizable similarities like structure for the cells. The cells need energy for working and it acts as a small factory. The replication of DNA acts as a blueprint to construct new cells to form an organism.

Every cell of the body function with the help of some small organelles like Golgi apparatus, mitochondria et cetera.

Karyotypes can be studied to determine an organism’s chromosomal makeup and to detect genetic defects. Patau syndrome occurs when an individual has an extra copy of chromosome 13, giving them three copies. Symptoms of Patau syndrome include extra digits, seizures, and cleft palate. Which word would geneticists use to describe the cause of Patau syndrome?

The answer is trisomy 13.

Trisomy 13 is a condition in which an extra copy of chromosome 13 is present. Instead of two chromosomes 13 in a cell, there are three chromosomes. This is a consequence of a failure of chromosome 13 to separate during the gamete development. Thus, an egg cell or a sperm cell will have two instead of one chromosome 13 and after a cross with normal gamete cell, a zygote will have three chromosomes 13.

What do the skin and urinary system have in common? A. Both remove filtered wastes and reabsorb blood. B. Both remove undigested food from the body. C. Both remove urine from the body. D. Both remove urea from the body.

The correct answer is:

Both remove urea from the body Because for the urinary system, it removes urea and waste through the body through urine. For the skin, it removes urea through sweat. Both are secretions that help rid the body of waste.


Sweat glands in the skin discharge a fluid waste called sweat or exudation; however, its primary functions are heat control and pheromone release. The purpose of the urinary system is to discharge waste from the body, control blood volume and blood pressure, control levels of electrolytes and metabolites, and regulate blood pH.both eliminate excess waste from the body.

Describe the impact cellular respiration has on other organisms and the environment.

Cellular respiration is the process by which living organisms break down glucose in the presence of oxygen in order to produce energy, carbon dioxide and water is always given off as the by products of the reaction. The process of cellular respiration is very important for living organisms because it is the only way through which they can obtain the needed energy to fuel the life sustaining activities of their cells. The process of cellular respiration also has impact on the environment because the photosynthetic plants depend on the carbon dioxide  and water, that is produced as the end product of cellular respiration to carry out photosynthesis. Animals in turn use the oxygen and glucose that is produce by photosynthesis to carry out the process of cellular respiration.

A mountain lion population recently experienced a drop in population size. Which of the following would best describe the limiting factor that is involved?


B.The deer population experienced a rapid decline due to a parasite.


-Limiting Factor is an environmental factor that tends to limit population size. Limiting factors may be density dependent or density independent. The density dependent factors are factors whose effects on the size or growth of the population vary with the population density. There are many types of density dependent limiting factors such as; availability of food, predation, disease, and migration.

-Density independent factors can affect a population no matter what it's density is. For example: natural disasters, temperature, sunlight, human activities, physical characteristics and behaviors of organisms affect any and all populations regardless of their densities.
