The correct answer would be b. cellular respiration.

Cellular respiration is defined as the set of metabolic reactions taking place in a cell in order to harness energy from food and convert it in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate).

It includes glycolysis, pyruvate decarboxylation, Krebs cycle, and oxidative phosphorylation (electron transport chain, and chemiosmosis).

It requires oxygen for complete oxidation of food (glucose) in order to produce ATP and release carbon dioxide as a byproduct.

The overall reaction can be written as:

C₆H₁₂O₆ + 6O₂  → 6CO₂ + 6H₂O + energy (ATP)

Human growth hormone is genetically engineered and inserted into human tissue to help stimulate growth in people with dwarfism. What are possible concerns that scientists have about the long-term effects of this process? whether it will mutate whether it will result in allergens how it will impact nutrition how it will enhance disease resistance

I believe the answer is "how it will enhance disease resistance".
When something is used to fight any sort of disorder,mutation,bacteria,ect,...sometimes the thing you are trying to help will mutate as it adapts and develops a stronger resistance to the thing used to help.

Insects often act as pollinators for plants. In turn, plants provide these insects with food. What kind of a relationship exists between the insects and the plants?


In this case mutualism is the relationship between Insects and plants


The pollination is mutualism because it involves two species interaction that is benefic. There is an interaction involving the exchange of food and the possibility of reproduction by the transfer of gametes. This relation implies benefits for both species. The advantage for the plant is the possibility to produce more number and more viable offspring, the advantage for the insects pollinators include food (pollen and nectar).

Which is the relationship between photosynthesis and cellular respiration? Cellular respiration makes the glucose that is needed by photosynthesis. Photosynthesis makes the glucose that is broken down by cellular respiration. Cellular respiration converts the glucose that is made by photosynthesis to oxygen. Photosynthesis converts the glucose that is made by cellular respiration to carbon dioxide.


The correct answer would be  "Photosynthesis makes the glucose that is broken down by cellular respiration".

Photosynthesis is the process by which autotrophs or green plants synthesize their food (glucose) from carbon dioxide and water with the help of chlorophyll and sun.

They convert solar energy into chemical energy (food) and oxygen is released  as the byproduct.

6CO₂ + 6H₂O + solar energy → C₆H₁₂O₆ + 6O₂

In contrast, cellular respiration refers to the set of metabolic reactions which harnessed the chemical energy of food or glucose and convert it into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the energy currency of the cell.

The cell requires oxygen for the complete oxidation of the food or glucose.

C₆H₁₂O₆ + 6O₂ → 6CO₂ + 6H₂O + ATP

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.

Which of the following statements is false? The number of chromosomes is different in different organisms. There are more genes in a cell than there are chromosomes. A single gene can only influence a single trait. The karyotypes for a male human and a female human look different.


The false statement is "A single gene can only influence a single trait".


A single gene can control or influence one or more than one trait. The ability of a single gene to control or affect more than one character or trait is called pleiotropy. However, according to one gene-one enzyme hypothesis gene act through enzyme production that each gene is responsible for single enzyme that affects a single step in a metabolic process.

The graphic below shows how photosynthesis and cellular respiration are related. mc023-1.jpg Which label in the graphic represents the energy that is released from glucose by cellular respiration? A)Oxygen B)Glucose C)Energy stored as ATP D)Carbon dioxide and water

The right answer is C)Energy stored as ATP

Cells have different morphologies, structures, and roles, but their basic operation is the same. One of the main activities of the cell is its survival.

ATP is precisely a molecule essential to the life of the cell.

The degradation reactions are called exoenergetic because they release energy and the synthesis reactions are called endoenergetic because they consume: the energy of the first reactions allows the realization of synthesis reactions.

This is only possible if an intermediary is able to store this energy and restore it as needed: the ATP molecules play this role of intermediary.
