The worksheet is set to show whether you have an answer correct or not. You are able to submit and come back into the program and make corrections. Short answer questions will be graded by the teacher so you may not see whether you have points for those questions until the teacher has time to grade your response.

Gray wolves live in packs with about 6 to 15 members. Young pups remain behind while the older animals hunt for prey as a group. They often seek out old, sick, and slower prey animals. All of the adults regurgitate food for the pups. Suggest a cost for adult wolves resulting from their feeding behavior.

Students plan an experiment to determine whether fish exhibit different feeding behaviors when presented with food flakes of different colors. The students predict that fish will be able to see brightly colored flakes more easily and will therefore eat more of these flakes. This prediction most closely resembles a scientific _____________.
A theory
B hypothesis
C conclusion
D law

A female ground squirrel may send out a call warning her offspring that a predator is near. Often, the mother sacrifices her own life since the predator can move easily and locate her from the call. Even though this behavior results in death, it is beneficial to her in that ...........
A half of her alleles are preserved in each offspring.
B all of her alleles are preserved in each offspring.
C the predator may be less likely to attack the population again.
D the alleles that caused her behavior will no longer be in the gene pool.

Review Question: Use the tabe above to answer this question. In a hypothetical rabbit species, females prefer to mate with brown males over gray males. Fur color is a trait controlled by one gene that can occur in a dominant form (F) or a recessive form (f). A gray female mates with a gray male and both of the parents are heterozygous for fur color. They produce a brown male offspring. How is this possible?
A Since brown fur is preferred by females, male offspring are more likely to be brown.
B During fertilization, a mutation for brown fur color formed.
C There was a 25% chance of a homozygous dominant offspring.
D There was a 25% chance of a homozygous recessive offspring.
