And if more:Between DNA and RNA, there are three major differences: 1. DNA contains deoxyribose sugar, RNA - ribose, which has an additional, compared deoxyribose with hydroxyl group. This increases the possibility of hydrolysis of the group of the molecule, i.e. reduces the stability of an RNA molecule. 2. The nucleotide complementary to adenine, thymine in RNA does not, as in DNA and uracil - thymine unmethylated form. 3. DNA exists as a double helix consisting of two separate molecules. RNA molecule, on average, shorter and more preferably single-stranded.   based on this, select the answer yourself)!

What is true of matter in ecosystems? A.The primary productivity of an ecosystem does not depend on the availability of nutrients. B.Living things can recycle elements within an ecosystem as long as decomposers are present. C.Matter flows in a one-way direction with a 10% loss at each move up in trophic level. D.Elements continuously cycle between the physical environment and living organisms.

Correct answer choice is:

D) Elements continuously cycle between the physical environment and living organisms.


Any nonliving matter that living things want is termed a nutrient. Carbon and nitrogen are parts of nutrients. Unlike energy, the object is converted into ecosystems. Decomposers deliver nutrients when they cut down dead organisms. When one organism eats a different organism, it takes all of its nutrients. Nutrients can also cycle out of an ecosystem. Falling leaves may be moved out of an ecosystem by a water. Decomposers cut down dead organisms into nutrients and carbon dioxide, which they respire into the air.

The process in which an animal’s cells use oxygen and digested food molecules to release the energy in food is called a. Breathing b. cellular respiration c. diffusion d. gas exchange


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)

The paper clip, which is denser than water, floats on the surface because of water's surface tension. Surface tension is a property of water that is the result of polar water molecules sticking together or water's property of A) adhesion. B) cohesion. C) buoyancy. D) capillary action.

The answer is cohesion. The high surface tension helps the paper clip (with much higher density) float on water. The property of a liquid that allows it to resist an external force, due to cohesive nature of its molecules. Cohesion refers to the attraction of molecules for molecules of the same kind. Water molecules have strong cohesive forces due to their ability to form hydrogen bond with each other.

During reduction, 3-PGA reacts with ATP and NADPH. What does ATP contribute to the reaction? A. carbon B. hydrogen ions C. electrons D. phosphate group

D. phosphate group

ATP usually releases energy by breaking down the weak phosphate cell present.  The energy released due to the breaking down of the phosphate cell is then utilized. The ATP is converted to ADP. Whenever a cell feels the necessity for energy it releases a phosphate to gather the energy. It is an automatic and ongoing process. The weak bond between the second and the third phosphate is always targeted for turning ATP to ADP. This is the reason ATP is considered the main energy currency for the cell.

What is true of saturated fatty acids?

Saturated fatty acids are the type of fatty acids where all of them have single bonds. Their name comes from the fact that usually the second bond they have will be broken up and because of this each half of the bond can be saturated (attached to) with a hydrogen atom that can be available in near vicinity. It is worth noting that thhe fatty acids of fish and plants are mostly unsaturated (either mono-unsaturated or poly-unsaturated) while the fatty acids of animals are mostly saturated.
