    This test was weird, i can't discern if i did well or not. I only know i lost stupid marks!!;$ What did you guys put for type of cells not in amoeba?

    P.S:Im not allowed to take f212 in my school cause they think not capable enough despite been 2 marks of C last year. Would it be better if I just focus on f214 and f215 or take the exam in another school, if possible? Any advice welcome

    The answer for 14mm was 117 because it was to the nearest nm and the answer was 116.6 so you round it up
    Yeah that's what I meant & put. Is that okay?

    I put palisade cell and spongy mesophyll but that's a tissue, so I dropped a mark on that already haha.

    I wrote Y too, but it should've been Z, because Y was the magnification od the SEM, not the TEM

    It was suppose to be guard cells and palisade mesophyll cells
    How can it be pallisade mesophyll cells
    They are needed for photosynthesis

    I got 117um and I think that's the right answer cause quite a lot in my class got it and I got Z as it had the greatest magnification and smallest resolution which a TEM is

    Plant cells have chloroplasts palisade cells have a greater number of them

    Does anyone know the answer to what mechanisms are used to move water into the moss? Are we supposed to talk about the different pathways or about cohesion and tension?

    I used 15mm so I got 120 micrometers. I think they will accept the 14-15mm range..
