    I only put down that the selective weedkillers kill plants with broad leaves (which weeds normally have). Didn't remember the rest. It was only 2 marks anyway.

    i put that they are sprayed on the plants and The ones with broader leaves died out because the auxins made them grow too fast (probably doesn't make sense, i didn't revise that part)

    1.Glycogen is a store of glucose in the body
    2.After a meal, blood glucose levels increase
    3.insulin release from pancreas to reduce blood sugar levels
    4.insulin is a hormone that causes the liver to convert glucose into glycogen

    How many marks will I get?

    I wrote auxins only kill the plants with broad leaves whilst leaving the other plants in the crop unaffected. i wrote a little more but forgot.

    what did you write?
    I wrote about the pancreas secreting insulin which travels through the blood converting glucose into glycogen which is stored in the liver and this reduces blood glucose concentration and it's a negative feedback
