True or false: you should always study at the concepts you're good at first.
False! Always tackle your weaknesses first when studying. This ensures any content weaknesses are eliminated while you have the most attention, for attention spans decrease rapidly after a certain amount of time studying. If you cannot focus enough to work on your weaknesses (it's hard to tackle things you don't know and a lot of fun to work on the stuff you're good at-- trust me, I know), eliminate all distractions and find a quiet place to study!
You've been growing a plant for a while now. It's finals week, and the past few days have been super busy. You stumble into your room after a whole day of tests and find your plant sitting wilted in the corner of your room. You forgot to water it for the past few days! Use your biology knowledge to examine why your plant has wilted.
In order for a plant to stay healthy, its cells need a sufficient amount of water for survival. By not watering your plant, its cells have undergone plasmolysis. Plasmolysis is the shrinking of a plant cell's cytoplasm due to water loss. When this happens, the cell will not be as plump and turgid. Because your plant's cells have thoroughly (and unfortunately) undergone plasmolysis, your plant's cells have lost their turgor pressure. Turgor pressure arises from the pressure of water in the cytoplasm that pushes against the cell wall. In order for plant cells to keep a sufficient amount of turgor pressure, the cells must contain a certain amount of water. If not, then turgor pressure decreases and plasmolysis occurs and you have yourself a pitiful and wilted plant.
Can you find the error in the sentence below? If so, identify the type of error and correct it. I was having trouble creating an English question, I figured it out!
The error was a comma splice and the correction is, "...I was having trouble creating an English question, but I figured it out!"
