5) The ant, Myrmecia pilosula, is found in Australia and is named bulldog because of its aggressive behavior. It is particularly interesting because it carries all its genetic information in a single pair of chromosomes. In other words, 2n = 2. (Males are haploid and have just one chromosome.) Which of the following figures would most likely represent a correct configuration of chromosomes in a metaphase I cell of a female?
A)
 
B)
 
C)
 

D)
 

E)
 

Answer: Attached
Section:  2.4

6) For the purposes of this question, assume that a G1 somatic cell nucleus in a female Myrmecia pilosula contains 2 picograms of DNA. How much DNA would be expected in a metaphase I cell of a female?
A) 16 picograms
B) 32 picograms
C) 8 picograms
D) 4 picograms
E) Not enough information is provided to answer the question.
Answer: Attached
Section:  2.4
7) Myrmecia pilosula actually consists of several virtually identical, closely related species, with females having chromosome numbers of 18, 20, 32, 48, 60, 62, and 64. Assume one crossed a female of species (A) with 32 chromosomes and a male of species (B) with 9 chromosomes (males are haploid, and each gamete contains the n complement). How many chromosomes would one expect in the body (somatic) cells of the female offspring?
A) 4.5
B) 9
C) 25
D) 32
E) 41
Answer: Attached
Section:  2.4

8) What is the outcome of synapsis, a significant event in meiosis?
A) side-by-side alignment of nonhomologous chromosomes
B) dyad formation
C) monad movement to opposite poles
D) side-by-side alignment of homologous chromosomes
E) chiasma segregation
Answer: Attached
Section:  2.4

9) During interphase of the cell cycle, ________.
A) DNA recombines
B) sister chromatids move to opposite poles
C) the nuclear membrane disappears
D) RNA replicates
E) DNA content essentially doubles
Answer:  E
Section:  2.3
