A biologist is constructing a cladogram to show the evolutionary relationships between the animals shown below. If anatomical features are used to construct the cladogram, which animal will be placed farthest from the shown animal?

The animal shown is an antelope.

A. The first animal shown looks like a lioness.

B. This looks something like a bull; it has horns (small though) and is mostly brown.

C. A camel is shown.

Based on what characteristics the animals have, I think that the camel should be farthest away from the antelope. Do you agree?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
