Question:

Imagine this is an outline: Turtles are reptiles. i. They're cold blooded. -They bask in the sun. ii. They have scales. -You can see their scales. iii. They breathe air. -Turtles have to come up for air. Conc: Turtles must be reptiles. Critique this essay.

Answer:

Besides the fact that it's a very simple argument with a clear answer, it's boring and could use a counterargument. In addition, there's no flow to the ideas. This outline would benefit from the ideas being segregated in terms of the physical characteristics of turtles and of behavior, and from planning out the transitions between ideas in the outline as well.

Question:

If Sally can eat 10 chocolates in one hour, and John can eat 5 in one hour, how many hours would it take them combined to eat 20 chocolates?

Victoria W.
Answer:

One hour is 60 minutes. Sally can eat one chocolate in 6 minutes (60 minutes divided by 10). John can eat one chocolate in 12 minutes (60 minutes divided by 5). Sally eats at a rate at 1/6 (one chocolate in 6 minutes) and John in 1/12. Combined, you add that up and get that they both eat at a rate of 3 chocolates in 12 minutes (3/12). 20 chocolates divided by 3 is 6.6666. 12 times 6.66666 is 80, so it would take them 80 minutes or 1.333 hours (80/60).

Question:

What is cyclic electron flow in the electron transport chain and when does it occur?

Victoria W.
Answer:

Cyclic electron flow is when electrons are cycled through Photosystem I to produce ATP via building up the concentration gradient instead of going on to reduce NADP+. Because NADP+ then can't be reduced to form NADPH, this process can occur under conditions of high NADPH when ATP must still be generated but NADPH isn't desired.
