i think...

Which of the 4 are the most simplest form of quickly analysing an organism for a simple yes or no answer e.g oxidase test - does the organism produce cytochrome c oxidases. The test will indentify an ability but not its phylogenetic relationship to other bacteria

And the slide agglutiation test, is a specific test for the precence of specific antibodies.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
