A mother takes her child's privileges to use the TV away after the child misbehaves. Is this a (positive/negative) (reinforcer/punisher)?
Negative punisher. In the context of punishers and reinforcers, anything positive adds a stimuli while anything negative involves taking something away. For example, a positive punisher could be spanking a child(adding an aversive stimuli). A negative reinforcement could be no homework if the class does well on the test(taking away something bad). Reinforcement usually causes a pleasant response while punishment usually causes an unpleasant response. Here-taking away something (negative) causes an unpleasant response(punisher).

Why do you want to go to Dreamland University?
Questions like this are typical in college applications. I would work with you to include -how your values align with the mission statement of the college you are applying to -what attracted you to the university in the first place(e.g. it's in California, it's out of state, it's an Ivy League) and frame this core reason in the broader perspective of your story and who you are. -what you believe you can bring to the University. This is also discussed in a personal statement/statement of purpose so for answering a shorter question, we would condense the answer to "what will you bring to our university" a little bit to make the answer to this question concise, yet rich.
If 6 glucose molecules go through glycolysis, how many NADH molecules will be produced?
12 NADH molecules will be produced. Glucose is a six carbon sugar that splits into 2 3-carbon sugars to undergo glycolysis. The processing of each 3-carbon sugar into pyruvate produces 2 ATP and 2 NADH. 2 NADH* # of glucose molecules input=2*6=12 **This question did not take the Citric Acid Cycle or the Electron Transport Chain into account. It was focusing solely on glyclosis.***
