A farmer cut 1 orange into 5 slices and then cut each of the 5 slices into 7 more pieces each. If the Farmer begins with a total of 9 oranges, how many total orange slices will there be?
This question test the students ability to apply basic mathematic skills to a real-world problem. Here, the farmer begins with 9 oranges. Each orange is cut into 5 pieces so, that is 5x9 = 45 pieces and then cuts each of those pieces into 7 slices so, that is 45x7 = 315 total slices.
Which organelle in the cell is responsible for anabolism of hormones and lipids? Would this organelle be found in a prokaryotic or eukaryotic cell?
This question test the students understanding of basic eukaryotic organelles. First, the student must recall the process of anabolism. Anabolism is the building up of molecules to be used in bodily processes. The student must also recall that hormones and lipids are constructed within the smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER). Finally, Eukaryotic cells are the only cells that will have membrane-bound organelles such as the Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER). Prokaryotic cells do not have membrane-bound organelles. The only organelle similar to both Eukaryotic and Prokaryotic cells is the ribosome. Ribosomes are not membrane-bound and are not used in hormone and lipid synthesis.
An airplane begins flight at sea level. The airplane then rises 1200 feet then declines 128 feet and then rises 199 feet. What position, relative to sea level, is the position of the airplane at the end of the maneuver?
This question test the students understanding of addition and subtraction in context of a real-world situation. Since the airplane begins at sea level there is no extraneous information about sea level that is important for the question. Simply add 0 + 1200 to give 1200 feet and then 1200 - 128 results in 1072 feet and then 1072 + 199 results in 1271 feet. The final answer is 1271 feet and thus, is the position of the airplane at the end of the maneuver relative to sea level.
