A population of snakes that eat small rodents enters a new habitat. In the new habitat, there are many species of rodents, and their populations are high because there are few natural predators. What will most likely be the effect on the genetic variation of the snake population? Genetic variation will increase because of a selective pressure. Genetic variation will increase because of a new habitat and food source. Genetic variation will decrease because of a selective pressure. Genetic variation will decrease because of a new habitat and food source.


Option B, Genetic variation will increase because of a new habitat and food source.


There are three positive scenarios about the new environment in which the snakes have entered -  

a) There are different varieties of rodent

b) The population of rodent is high due to less number of predators.  

c) Low population of predators other than the snakes (Limited competition)

Hence, snakes will have ample supply of food in the new sphere as there is very low competition among the predators (due to low population of other predators) and also there are varieties of rodent. Due to ample supply of food and limited competition with other predators , snake population will increase and thus the genetic variation will also increase due to increased rate of breeding.

Thus, option B is correct.

The tundra ecosystem of Alaska is known as a “cold desert.” It receives very little precipitation, about four inches annually. However, it is rich in wetlands due to permafrost, which traps moisture close to the surface. The temperatures vary widely, also producing persistent winds. Although treeless, the Arctic tundra is an abundant ecosystem. Many organisms find their niche here including many migratory bird species and mammals such as caribou, foxes, bears, and small rodents. Which element of the tundra ecosystem is biotic? A.wind B.dead bird C.carbon dioxide D.temperature

The correct answer is option B. dead bird

In an ecosystem two types of components exist which are known known as biotic and abiotic.

A biotic component is the one which has life or had life at some point of time. A dead bird is therefore considered as biotic component because even though at present it doesn't have life yet earlier it had life. Abiotic components are those components which neither have life at present nor they had in past. Wind, carbon dioxide and temperature are therefore considered as abiotic components of tundra ecosystem.

The correct options are finding food, finding mates and sensing danger.


Chemoreceptors are receptors that sense or detects different chemical stimuli in the atmosphere and take that information to the brain and spinal cord.

In humans, chemoreceptors are mostly for testing and other higher animals. In most animals, chemoreceptors are used in finding foods, finding mates and sensing danger.

Pheromones are a type of chemoreceptors for finding food and mates.

Thus, the correct options are finding food, finding mates and sensing danger.

How does the large intestine help the body excrete wastes? A) It reabsorbs water from filtrate. B) It forms urine. C) It removes urea from the body. D) It processes undigested food into feces

The correct answer is option D

The main function of large intestine is to process the undigested food into feces.

The food when ingested by the mouth reaches the stomach and then small intestine. The nutrients are then absorbed from the food by the small intestine.

The left over undigested food is converted into feces in the large intestine and is removed out of the body by rectum.

What is the main difference between aerobic respiration and anaerobic respiration? A: aerobic respiration requires oxygen to proceed, but anaerobic does not. B: aerobic respiration occurs during photosynthesis, but anaerobic respiration occurs during cellular respiration C: aerobix respiration produces atp, but anaerobic respiration does not D: aerobic respiration occurs only in living organisms, but anaerobic respiration occurs in nonliving organisms

The correct answer is (a) aerobic respiration requires oxygen to proceed, but anaerobic does not

  • The aerobic respiration takes place only in the pressence of oxygen and the later is required to carry forward the reaction. This means the aerobic respiration takes place in a oxygen rich environment. The end product of aerobic respiration is carbon dioxide and water and the amount of energy released in the form of ATP( adenosine triphosphate)
  • Anaerobic respiration takes place in the oxygen deficient environment. This respiration takes place when the body has no or less oxygen supply. Example: decomposition, alcohol fermentation

A species of mice can have long or short tails. if you crossed a male mouse which is heterozygous and has a long tail with a female mouse with a short tail, what would the expected phenotypic outcome be and why?

Answer: The expected phenotypes will be long tail and short tail


Suppose L for the character "long tail" and l for "short tail, the genotype of the male for that character would be Ll (dominant heterozygous), and that of the female ll (homozygous recessive). When these individuals intersect, the progeny of the F1 (first generation) would be genotypically Ll or ll, therefore the expected phenotypes will be long tail and short tail. Those with long tails will be heterozygous and those with short tails will be homozygous. This is because the male has a dominant and a recessive allele giving the chance of two possible combinations of alleles, while the female being homozygous, only has one allele option to combine with any of the two from the male. When a recessive allele meets a dominant one, the dominant one is expressed in the phenotype. A recessive allele will only be expressed if it is combined with another recessive.

You have an ecosystem with the following organisms: birds, fruit trees, tigers, and monkeys. which list would best describe the food chain?

The answer is fruit trees, birds/monkeys, tigers. Producers are the first level of the food chain. Plants are producers because they produce their own food. So, fruit trees will be at the beginning of the food chain. The next level belongs to the primary consumers. Primary consumers are animals that feed on producers. Both birds and monkeys feed on fruit trees, so they are the next in line after fruit trees. Finally, secondary consumers eat primary consumers, such as birds and monkey. Tigers are secondary consumers, and thus they are last on the food chain list.

Yellowfin tuna, or Thunnus albacores, are large sport fish that are found in tropical and subtropical waters around the world. They typically school under objects such as boats or patches of driftwood for protection from predators. Schooling under these structures also provides yellowfin tuna with easy access to a food source such as smaller herbivorous fish that may be foraging for food around the structures. Which trophic level does yellowfin tuna fill in a food chain?we

The answer is secondary consumer.

A trophic level of an organism shows its position in a food chain:

1. Producers, such as plants and algae, produce their own food and thus are the base of every food chain.

2. Primary consumers eat producers. They are herbivores that eat plants.

3. Secondary consumers eat primary consumers. They eat herbivores, so they are carnivores or omnivores.. 

4. The highest level is tertiary consumers that eat secondary consumers

According to this, and knowing than yellowfin tuna eat smaller herbivorous fish, it can be concluded that it belongs to the secondary consumers.

Legumes, a type of plant, require Rhizobia, a type of soil bacteria, to survive since these organisms fix nitrogen during photosynthesis. Rhizobia use the legumes for food. What would most likely happen to the legume population if Rhizobia suddenly became extinct?

Answer: The legume population will decrease.

Explanation: Legumes are the plants that use Rhizobia, a bacteria that is used  for nitrogen fixation.

The legumes will not survive and slowly its population will decrease. This is because there will be no nitrogen fixation in the legumes without rhizobia.

Nitrogen synthesis is important for the various metabolic activities inside the plant. So, many processes of the plant will be disturbed and ultimately the plant will die.
