Debate and discussion of any biological questions not pertaining to a particular topic.

Actually it was all cut and pasted direct from an exam the person is taking with ICS. It is part of the Opening Doors To The Study Of Biology Exam.
There are 20 questions in the exam and all the person has to do is STUDY
the material from the text books they received prior to doing the test.

When you cheat, you are only cheating yourself. :roll:

You all shouldn't be so rude. How's this site suppose to get publicity when people see annoying responses to threads such as this? If you dont want to answer the questions, dont answer, but its better to say nothing at all if you cant say anything nice. Asking people to pay you for answers is ridiculous, this site isnt for personal gain what so ever. It's possible that the questions may have been his homework, but he only needed help with his homework. He wasn't asking for you to do it for him, he may have done it already, and wanted to see what our answers were so that he could compare them to his own.
Next time be more considerate?

Thanks for your input, but, it is irrelevant.
If the original poster really wanted something else than being spoon-fed answers, he or she could have easily showed that he or she had done some work by posting his or her answers and asking for our input. Or said what felt wrong with what he or she comes up with. Then we answer, discuss and help when we can. Otherwise, too bad. This is a site wide policy enforced by the mods. This site is not here to stroke your little ego or to feed your laziness. It is not a question of monetary value, but educative value. And if you disagree you are welcome to go somewhere else. According to your track record of posting, it won't make much difference for this site.

umm, a forum is not a chatroom, people aren't online all the time. Second, don't hijack other threads, start your own.

There's at least one error(#13) in those answers. And unless Nyke has the same book, I doubt he answered #16 correctly.
