4) what is the correct order of biome distribution starting at the lowest elevation and
moving to higher elevations?
a. tropical forest - deciduous forest - montane coniferous forest - alpine tundra
b. tropical forest - deciduous forest - desert - alpine tundra
c. deciduous forest - montane coniferous forest - tropical forest - alpine tundra

while eating a container of yogurt, you have to leave, so you store the yogurt in the
refrigerator. a day later you return and find the surface of the yogurt is no longer smooth
but has broken into several liquified products. you correctly guess that enzymes from
your saliva, via the spoon, have continued digesting the yogurt in your absence. what
will happen over time?
a. the reaction will soon stop because the amount of saliva is small, and you would have
to add more saliva to continue the degradation.
b. the reaction will continue, since the enzyme is not denatured by the reaction.
c. the reaction will continue until half is digested and then stop because the reaction
between substrate and product will be balanced.
d. absolutely no degradation of the yogurt will occur naturally unless in the presence of
this enzyme.5) in

b. a mutation occurred in a population of howler monkeys that increases their fitness.
c. females start mating more frequently with the males in the group that sing differently
than the rest of the group.
d. adaptive radiation doesn't occur in populations since species are fixed.
9) which of the following pairs of zones are comparable?
