Base your answers to questions 5 on the information below and on your knowledge of biology.
The Galapagos pink land iguana, Conolophus marthae (C. marthae), is native to only one of the Galapagos Islands. Its entire range is currently limited to Wolf Volcano on Isabella Island. The iguana was first discovered on this island in 1986. Genetic studies of the animal began sometime later, and it was identified as a species separate from other iguana populations on the Galapagos in 2009. Its population might have been as high as 100 in 1986, but now there might be as few as 10 of the animals left alive.
Other evidence indicates that this species could have diverged from another line of iguanas about 5.7 million years ago. After that, the other line of iguanas diverged into two other species, C. pallidus and C. subcristatus.
The testing that revealed that these iguanas are a separate species from the other iguanas present in the Galapagos most likely included*

A student used a microscope like the one represented below to observe cell division in onion cells.
The student noticed that as the new cells formed, they contained rod-shaped chromosomes. It is necessary for onion cells to contain chromosomes because chromosomes*
A scientist analyzed a segment of DNA from a human chromosome and found that the percentage of thymine molecular bases (T) was 35%. Which row in the chart below contains the correct percentages of the other molecular bases in the DNA segment?

A sample of DNA from a human skin cell contains 32% cytosine (C) bases. Approximately what percentage of the bases in this sample will be thymine (T)?*
Researchers use a variety of techniques to learn more about the function of a specific gene in an organism. In one type of experiment, called a loss-of-function experiment, the gene being investigated is eliminated. In a gain-of-function experiment, extra copies of the gene being investigated are inserted. The cell process most directly affected in both experiments is*
