    I'm not entirely sure I don't want to tell you the wrong answer, but at least it's only one mark. I know there were really badly worded questions though. I mean that title about justification, it was a bit weird

    I wrote not similar to humans, the amount of caffeine was unrealistic (six cups), and then something else but I can't remember

    I did four lines for first question and I'm not sure if your only meant to do three


    For last question I put, deforestation decreases photosynthesis so co2 take up less, burn the tress so co2 released, burn fuel from palm tree so co2 released, fossil fuels produced which are non renewable and contribute to global warming and then some other stuff

    I wrote trees take in carbon dioxide and release o2 which goes to the atomosphere and when clearing the forsits the carbon dixiode in the trees is released which damages the Atomophere, hence heat is radiated back to earth which damages the envioment. Plus some other waffles
