  5. i know this is late but i was looking this up because im taking the same test. Mrs. Bastin, respectfully, they were helping him/her. They gave the person some possible resources so they could take that information to help her (i'm just going to assume that the person that asked the question was a her (sorry if you aren't, i don't mean to offend you)) answer the question and learn. She would learn the same information in her class, so are you saying that teachers should just give students questions that you have no information to and "encourage" them to do it on their own? no. probably not. so therefore, your argument is irrelevant. I normally don't say anything on those comments but i keep seeing them on here, and if you are just going to encourage us to do it on our own then what is the point of this site? idk about everyone else, but when i post a question on here, i want someone to help me, not give me a "pat on the back" and say "I'm not going to give you an answer or help in anyway, but i thought i would respond to you to tell you to keep trying and stop asking people for help". NO. that's not what this site is intended for, and im sorry, but if you don't like it, get off. Because that is all you're going to see on here, considering the fact that this is a place to learn, if i'm not mistaken. I mean, by all means, correct me if i'm wrong about any of this. I would love to here another one of your "keep trying" comments. :)

  14. Ello, M8s. Bob the Dinosaur here, always helpful. So. I see some of you are being weird, which is normal I guess. Anyways...@Anon ! Congrats, I completely agree. Very well said, and your grammar doesn't matter at this point, because you got what you wanted to say out there. So, as for the answer to this question, I will find it and give it to all of you (The swearing and the not swearing) freely. Just be patient. I know the end of the school year is upon us, but we must REMAIN CALM!
    Always,

    P.S. The answers will come out soon, I swear.

  15. 1. Molecular evidence: similar proteins and genes found in closely related species, even if those genes are not used by an organism.
    2. Fossil evidence: organisms changing form over time through the fossil record.
    I think this info can help you a lot

  19. It is one think to help when studying, but when you are straight up asking for test answers, that is cheating. My teacher will make a serve a detention with the asst Ppal for breaking the honor code. If you do the review and do your study guide you will be fine...my teacher literally tells us every topic that will be on the test so we don't waste our time with smaller, less important junk. Makes my tests super easy!

  20. dude, shut up. you know you came here to cheat aswell, so don't even. How could you have randomly ended up here? Also, I will try and give a small essay for this question when i'm done, since i'm trying to finish science early aswell as for future connexus students.

  21. I used Bob the dinasour a bit, and made it into this. Please note this isn't my best work, and if you're going to copy please change it up a bit before submitting.

    24. Scientists can use fossil evidence from many years ago for the theory of evolution. This helped them comprehend what the species was like. Scientists could also use similar genes found in close relatives. This can show how alike and unalike they are.

    25. A cladogram is a diagram showing the cladistic relationship between species. A scientist might use this to look for similarities that might indicate that they are closely related. Like for example, if they belonged to the same DNA line or not.

    Again, if you are going to use these please change them or you could possibly get into trouble.

  31. Hey guys! These are my essay answers, similar to @notsohot. I suggest you put as much of this into your own words as possible!

    24. Fossil evidence is one of the ways scientists can use to help prove the theory of evolution. They can compare similar bone structures from certain species to see if they match. Evolution means our bodies adapting and changing to help us survive in our habitats. So even if the bone structures aren't entirely the same, they will have common characteristics. Another way is by looking at the genes of the researched animals. Our genes characterize us to be the way we are. If there is a common DNA found in the genes, t can be safe to say that the animals are part of the same family.

    25. A cladogram is a diagram representing the relationship between species. Scientists can use these diagrams to search for similarities in organisms that might show that they are related to a common ancestor. They would write out the DNA of each organism and construct a cladogram where they will be able to see easily if there are any similarities.
