    Oh yeah, I got 4 and 8, but surely the offspring will have 12 chromosomes?

    Okay I'm jet going to try and recall what I wrote for Q8, what did you guys write?

    8a) They duplicate.
    8b) Something about having to replicate so that when the cell splits into two they are the same as the original?
    8c) They may have been descendants from a common ancestor because Species B has double the number of chromosomes as Species A and because they can successfully interbreed.
    8d) They can no longer interbreed because there may have been a mutation in the alleles or… idek

    Totally messed up there.

    AQA just got dicked by the HugeBicepLAD but unfortunately or fortunately my huge biceps lead me to believe that the HEXA enzyme didnt work because the amino acids would have been coded differently so the protein would have been a different shape so the substrate would no longer fit into the active site thus my biceps.. I mean the enzyme would not work
    Did everyone mention substrate and active site for the one about why a change in DNA would affect the enzyme ?

    I didn't.

    i just talked about how it wouldn't work cos DNA is made of four bases which work in threes and then these code for amino acids which are enzymes etc. And if the bases in Dna were changed then the enzyme would not work.

    For the numbers in the box the answers were 4 then 8 and the offspring would have 8 chromosomes in the body cell

    Yeah I also put 12.
    It would appear there are quite a few contradicting opinions on the matter... I got 8, due to some kind of irrational change of mind from my original answer of 12, but we'll see.
    I'll try and find something solid on Google.

    I had 12 and 8 lined up but I recognized it could be 8 because only 8 matched up

    Just found some stuff about the Przewalski horse reproducing with the wild horse (http://www.ansi.okstate.edu/breeds/horses/przewalski/).
    Gametes are 32 and 33. They reproduce to form offspring with 65 chromosomes. Therefore, the answer in the exam would have been 12.
    DAMN. I got it wrong.

    Its different for all plants, you just had to count them so 8 and 16 and then divide by two to get the amount in a gamete so 4 and 8

    Don't do Biology. I know a guy who did Biology, and he regrets it. (Mind you, he also regrets taking Maths, so...)

    yep unfortunately

    damn I really needed an A* in this one. I did about 11 past papers but still found the exam difficult today - it was the one on transects which caught me out initially and then Question 8 I just totally blanked on.
