    What did you guys write about the question why the scientists drew the conclusion, it was about HIV and natural selection.

    That's more detail than what I wrote. I panicked on it since I don't remember seeing it in the textbook or the specification.



    That's what I wrote as well. How many marks was it? It was only 1 right?
    think it was 1 or 2 and its not in the textbook at all i just checked sadly well hope we get it right

    Wasn't the difference in the area of the zone disinfected?

    I worked out the area of a circle for each and worked out how many times it was greater by dividing the area of the circle values.

    gg 0 marks looool

    I was thinking natural selection takes place over a long period of time and HIV was recently discovered. I also put natural selection gets rid of non-beneficial genes for more favourable/desirable ones

    Ugh I didn't think about calculating the area - I just did the diameter of D divided by the diameter of B.

    Why did the sample need to be thin?
    i think so light could more easily pass through and it could b seen clearly

    i basically said that their offspring may not have the mutation and that people rarely come in contact with hiv disease and so few die from ir
