Use the following information to answer the next 2 questions.

A biologist has three solutions and the labels have washed off. One solution was salt water with a concentration of salt higher than a living cell. the other two solutions are distilled water and pond water (fresh water). The biologist wants to determine which solution is salt water by placing several fresh water amoebas (small unicellular eukaryotes) into each solution. Use the following answers to answer the next 2 questions

    24.    The amoeba in salt water will__________

    25.    The amoeba in the distilled water solution will__________

    27.    How are prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells similar and how are these cells different. Provide at least 2 differences and 2 similarities and some example organisms.

    28.    Explain the differences and similarities between viruses and other forms of life. Why is there a controversy surrounding the inclusion of viruses with other forms of life?

    29.    Describe the use of binomial nomenclature, what are the different level of organization. Why have scientists added the new level entitled domains? Why have archaebacteria been given their own category? Give an example of each domain and kingdom.
