I am currently learning about respiratory system in anatomy and this question is not very clear to me:

I am thinking it may be carbon dioxide and oxygen respectively, but I am not too sure. Please help!

    Yes, I believe that is correct. Check your textbook for gas exchange.

    An inherited trait among humans in Norway causes affected individuals to have very wavy hair, not unlike that of a sheep. The trait, called woolly, is very evident when it occurs in families; no child possesses woolly hair unless at least one parent does. Imagine that you are a Norwegian judge and a woolly haired man comes before you to sue his normal haired wife for divorce because their first child has woolly hair but their second child has normal hair. The husband claims this constituted evidence of his wife’s infidelity. Do you accept his claim, justify your decision.
