B1 211 Fall 2010 Principles of Biology Midterm II SAMPLE EXAM PLEASE read all of the questions and answers CAREFULLY before answering Choose the best answer for each multiple choice truefalse and matching question Each correct answer is worth 2 points toward your final grade Refer to the following gure to answer questions 12 The diagram shows a phylogenetic tree relating the species A B C D and E 1 A group containing species C and D only would be in a clade b FALSE 2 The last common ancestor for both species D and E could be at position number a 1 b 2 I3 e5 3 An individual mixotroph loses its plastids yet continues to survive Which of the following is the most likely possibility to account for its continued survival a It is rotected b a siliceous case l MMHquot1 i 5quot rw iquot

vents quotl jquot 1 quot 1mm ll 3 m 1 IV The are Inst of Huw a l and H b I II and V c II III and V d 111 IV and V e 111 and V 11 You are given an unknown organism to identify It is unicellular and possesses more than two flagella and two small but equalsized nuclei The organism has small organelles that appear somewhat similar to mitochondria no chloroplasts and is anaerobic To which clade does this organism probably belong a rhizarians c sliIne molds d kinetoplastids e ciliates 12 Two types of organisms were discussed in lecture that despite being distantly related display a similar unusual

coenocytic fungi e Oomycetes water molds septae fung 13 Secondary endosymbiosis is the process by which a number of protistan clades eg Stramenopiles are hypothesized to have acquired the ability to conduct photosynthesis and it involves the endosymbiosis of either green or red algae rather than a prokaryote l l l A FALSE 14 Protists are alike in that all are unicellular symbionts autotrophic monophyletic 8953 15 In life cycles with an alternation of generations multicellular haploid forms alternate with a unicellular diploid forms b unicellular ha loid forms m maml mmquot mm d

Why people love StudySoup

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

"Selling my MCAT study guides and notes has been a great source of side revenue while I'm in school. Some months I'm making over $500! Plus, it makes me happy knowing that I'm helping future med students with their MCAT."

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

Parker Thompson 500 Startups

"It's a great way for students to improve their educational experience and it seemed like a product that everybody wants, so all the people participating are winning."
