26 Questions

Which method of reproduction produces genetically diverse individuals?

Sexual reproduction

What is the defining characteristic of living things?

Reproduction

What type of reproduction involves a single parent and produces a clone?

Asexual reproduction

Which cells fuse during sexual reproduction?

Sperm and egg cells

In which environment does external fertilization usually occur?

Aquatic

What is the process by which organisms give rise to offspring called?

Reproduction

What is external fertilization?

Fertilization where the male releases sperm and the female releases eggs in the same area at the same time

Which method is associated with oviparity?

Eggs are laid outside the female’s body and develop there, receiving nourishment from the yolk that is part of the egg

What occurs in ovo-viviparity?

Fertilized eggs are retained in the female, but the embryo obtains its nourishment from the egg’s yolk

What is hermaphroditism?

When one individual has both male and female reproductive parts

What is genetic engineering?

The direct manipulation of one or more genes using recombinant DNA (rDNA) technology

In which reproductive method do young develop within the female and are born alive?

Viviparity

Which animals commonly use hermaphroditism for reproduction?

Earthworms and snails

What is a characteristic of external fertilization?

Protects eggs from drying out in an aquatic environment

Which method involves self-fertilization in animals with limited mobility?

Hermaphroditism

Which type of fertilization involves fertilizing an egg by a sperm inside the body of the female?

Internal fertilization

What is the defining characteristic of sexual reproduction in animals?

Contribution of genetic material by two organisms

Which method of reproduction involves the creation of a new organism by combining the genetic material of two organisms?

Sexual reproduction

What is the most primitive method of reproduction that involves a single parent?

In which type of fertilization do males release sperm and females release eggs in the same area at the same time?

External fertilization

Test your knowledge of the different forms of reproduction in animals, including sexual reproduction and the creation of genetically diverse individuals. Explore the process by which organisms give rise to offspring and contribute genetic material to their offspring.
