Describe some of the checks and balances the legislative branch puts on the executive branch.
When we talk about one branch putting "checks and balances" on the other branch, we are essentially talking about one branch limiting the power of the other. In this case the legislative branch limits the power of the executive branch by being the ones to develop and critique the laws that the executive will pass or veto. Additionally, the legislative can dissolve or establish new presidential cabinets. Lastly, the legislative branch can create an oversight committee to oversee certain executive branch operations, and to ensure that the laws that congress make are being enforced correctly.
What are some of the primary differences between a prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells?
Prokaryotic cells (commonly known as bacteria) are cells that do not contain m a nucleus. Instead they have whats called a nucleiod. Essentially, the DNA material is not encapsulated like a eukaryotic nucleus. Prokaryotic DNA is circular, whereas Eukaryotic DNA is linear, this will effect certain cell processes. Both however, contain a cell membrane, and ribosomes.

Explain how color is produced at the electron level
An atom is made up of energy levels, or "rings" as people may call them. When electrons become excited, or full of energy, they tend to jump up an energy level. Those electrons cannot maintain the energy that is needed for them to stay at that energy level, so they 'fall' back to their original position. When these electrons fall back, they release energy that we see as color. Depending on the length of which they have to fall back to their original position, we will see different colors.
