Answer:

Hardness of a mineral is defined as the resistance to breaking, and density is defined as the mass of a substance per unit volume.

The density and hardness of a mineral, that is formed from through metamorphism are relatively much harder because the metamorphic minerals are formed under extremely high temperature and pressure conditions. These are high-grade minerals.

On the other hand, the density and hardness of a mineral formed through evaporation are much weaker in nature, because these minerals are formed when the water is eliminated due to the high rate of evaporation.

So, it can be concluded that the density and hardness of as mineral formed through the metamorphic process is highly stronger and harder than those that are formed through evaporation.

Question
Which of these is a source of sediment? Question 1 options: fragments of other rocks chemicals and minerals dissolved in water sea shells all of the above
Solution 1

Answer:

Option (1)

Explanation:

Sediments are defined as broken materials such as rock fragments, soil particles, that are transported from one place to another by the agents such as wind, water and ice. The sediments are formed from the weathering of rock bodies.

The source of a sediment refers to the point (location) from which the sediments are originated.

The fragments of other rocks can be considered to be a source of sediment because these are broken fragments were initially a part of another rock, that eventually weathered, and eroded and deposited at a different place.

hence, the correct answer is option (1).

Question
Are humans scavengers or consumers?
Solution 1
Id say scavengers but im not 100% sure

Solution 2
Actually, neither of them. Humans mostly don't hunt for prey and they do not eat just plants (except for vegans). They eat dead and proccessed food, so they are detritivores (detritophages), what means: "detritus eaters", (decomposing plant and animal parts). This is what I've learned on the lecture of famous Polish profesor January Weiner some time ago.

Solution 1
Animals that eat a variety of meats, fruits, and vegetables are omnivores.

(Animals that eat only meat, like tigers, lions, and leopards, are carnivores; animals that don't eat meat and eat only vegetables and fruits, like deer, sheep, or cows, are herbivores)
Question
The child of a short mother with black hair and a tall father with red hair is tall with black hair. This occurred because A) the parents provided some of the chromosomes. B) the parents and the child have identical nuclei. C) the child inherited chromosomes from both parents. D) the child inherited more chromosome from the father.
Solution 1

Answer: The correct answer is -

C) the child inherited chromosomes from both parents.

The child inherits 50% of the chromosomes from his father and other 50% from his mother (through fusion of male and female gametes that are sperm and egg respectively).

Due to this, child exhibits some of the paternal traits and some of the maternal traits. As per the given information in this question, mother is short with black hair and father is tall with red hair. The child produced is tall with black hairs. This also suggests that tall height and black hair are dominant traits (depicted by dominant gene variant) that suprress the expression of recessive trait (depicted by recessive gene variant), which are short height and red hairs.

Solution 2
Your answer is C. the child inherited chromosomes from both parents. Good luck with the rest of homework and have a merry 1/10/17!!
Question
In carnations, the allele for red pigmentation (R) is dominant to the allele for no pigmentation (r). Carnations with no pigmentation appear white in color. Help me asap!!! A cross between a red carnation and a white carnation produces pink carnations. Which of the following is true? This is an example of simple dominance. This is an example of incomplete dominance. The parent carnations are both homozygous dominant. The parent carnations are both homozygous recessive.
Solution 1
This is an example of incomplete dominance because neither R or W take completely over they both have equal Dominance to make a pink one.
Solution 2
I would have to say This is an example of incomplete dominance but i'm not sure if correct.
