Which of the following are not characteristics of the cell wall? Select all that apply. cellulose and chitin hydrophillic and hydrophobic structures found in cells of fungi and algae double-layered membrane

Answer: hydrophobic and hydrophilic structures found in cells of fungi and algea

double-layered membrane

A cell wall is a a semi-permeable protective layer found in some cell types. This covers the cell membrane in plants cells, fungi, bacteria. Animal cells do not possess cell wall. The cell wall performs functions like protection, provides structural stability to a cell and support. Cell wall composition varies depending upon the type of organism. In plants the cell wall is made up of fibers of carbohydrate polymer called as cellulose. In bacteria cell walls are made up of peptidoglycan. In fungi cell wall is made up of chitin. Hydrophillic and hydrophobic structures found in cells of fungi and algae and double- layered membrane are features of cell membrane not of cell wall.

A man is accused of a brutal beating of a young woman. He claims that he never struggled with her, despite several eyewitnesses seeing him with the woman. Several hairs from the woman's head are found at the crime scene. The hairs are analyzed by a hair expert. The hair expert explains that he is certain that the hairs have been pulled from the victim's head. How do we know that the hairs have been pulled? A) A small medullary index is present. B) Chevron scale patterns were noted. C) The follicular tags are stretched. D) The medulla patterns are elongated.


C) The follicular tags are stretched.


Follicular tags are the parts of the follicule root that are still attached to the end of the hair, if they are stretched that means that the follicule suffered from distress from being pulled from the follicule and that the force with which was being pulled caused a rupture in the hair follicule that made the follicular tags to stretch and eventually separate the hair from the head.

QUESTION POSTED AT 28/03/2020 - 10:31 AM

My mother, along with all of my godparents, began planning my quinceañera after I turned fourteen. My mother and aunts took me to a bridal shop where I was fitted for a long, white gown, which I would wear at the celebration. I felt my cheeks grow red with embarrassment as the women fawned and fussed over me in the store. I desperately wished that I could just find a hole to crawl into and hide, but there was no way out. My mother, who was in her glory, naturally assumed that the redness in my face was a glow of happiness. I let her go right on thinking that. It was her day, I kept telling myself. I was doing this for her. At last, the big day came. My father cooked up a special breakfast for my brothers and me first thing that morning. I had a queasy feeling in the pit of my stomach, but I was somewhat comforted by my father's easygoing manner and his apparent anticipation of the celebration ahead. After breakfast, my mother helped me dress for the quinceañera. While she was styling my hair, she paused every so often to wipe away a tear of joy that had trickled down her face. I couldn't recall ever having seen my mother quite this happy, and suddenly my heart swelled with affection for her. Two hours later, I found myself standing in the front of a church while all of my dearest friends and family members gazed up at me from the pews. As I looked out on the smiling, supportive faces of all the people I loved, I had an unexpected realization. This day wasn't for my mother after all; it was for me. The church ceremony was followed by a fiesta that lasted all day and into the night. My parents served food that they had worked for days to prepare. A disc jockey played all of the music I loved, and I was showered with beautiful gifts, practical advice, and good wishes from everyone important to me. As I watched my family members celebrate in my honor, I realized that my Mexican heritage was not something intangible, like a bunch of old stories about long-gone relatives. My heritage, I realized, was very real. It was with me at all times, and I was proud of it. What is the purpose of this essay?

To entertain/or to tell a story

Sally's teacher asked her to classify a microscopic organism found in pond water. The FIRST characteristic Sally used to figure what kingdom the organism belonged to was A) cell type. B) cell diameter. Eliminate C) number of ribosomes present. D) chemical composition of cell wall.

Ans. (A). cell type.

All organisms are classified into three kingdoms on the basis of their cell type, which include Monera, Protista, Fungi, Animalia, and Plantae.

Monera includes single-celled, prokaryotic organisms, such as bacteria and archaea. Cells of these organisms lack true nucleus and membrane bound organelles.

Protista include mostly single-celled eukaryotic organisms, such as amoeba and euglena. Eukaryotic cells have true nucleus and other membrane bound organelles.

Fungi includes fungus and other related organisms), such as yeast and mushroom. They have eukaryotic cells, surrounded by cell wall, like plant cells but they lack chloroplasts.

Animalia includes multicellular, eukaryotic organisms such as birds, fishes, insects, and humans. Animals also have cells with membrane bound organelles, but they lack cell wall.

Plantae include all the green plants, such as angiosperms, mosses, and ferns. Cells of these organisms are surrounded by a cell wall and have chloroplasts to perform photosynthesis.

So, the first characteristic that should be used to classify the organisms is to study their cell type. Thus, the correct answer is option (A).

A student observes that a type of eubacteria contains chlorophyll. Which of these does this type of bacteria have in common with plants? A student observes that a type of eubacteria contains chlorophyll. Which of these does this type of bacteria have in common with plants? It is photosynthetic. It contains vascular tissues. It is heterotrophic. It contains mitochondria.


The correct answer is It is photosynthetic.


Chlorophyll is the pigment that helps in the absorption of sunlight required to make food in green plants. The process of making organic food with the help of CO₂ and H₂O in the presence of sunlight is known as photosynthesis.

So chlorophyll is used by green plants, algae, and some bacteria like cyanobacteria to absorb the solar radiation so that it can be used to make food by photosynthesis. Therefore if any eubacteria contains chlorophyll then it can do photosynthesis to make its food in the form of glucose from CO₂ and H₂O.

Therefore the correct answer is it is photosynthetic.
