Which statements about Plasmodium are true?

Postby rosieburk » Sun Apr 26, 2009 3:02 am

1. Diploid Plasmodium cells enter a mosquito that bites a human infected with malaria.

2. Plasmodium cells infect two specific types of cells in humans.

3. Inside an infected mosquito, haploid gametes fuse, forming a diploid zygote that develops into an oocyst.

4. The life cycle of Plasmodium involves only haploid forms.

5. Inside an infected mosquito, diploid gametes fuse, forming a diploid zygote that develops into an oocyst.

6. Plasmodium is a parasite.

7.The complete life cycle of Plasmodium requires two hosts.

8. Plasmodium cells do not contain alveoli.

9. Plasmodium cells are transferred to humans through mosquito saliva.

i know 6, 8, and 9 are true but i'm not quite sure about the rest.

i think plasmodesmata missed out the 8 in the original post
8 isn't correct

i didn't check the rest but that was the only thing that conflicted in the earlier 2 posts
it isn't what you do that matters but it is how you do it
