Oh God, I can't really remember what I wrote for that - all educated guessing. I did that for a previous one on the same topic and got 6 marks, so hopefully it turns out the same!

Pentactyl limbs are limbs with 5 digits. They're common in vertebrates which shows we could have evolved from a common ancestor. Veryebrates have similar bone structures. This is evident in the bird and the whale, the fingers are long which shows they could have evolved from one another.

Was the leaf question a 'stomata'?
The fill in the gap question was diffusion I think?
And the guard cells opens during cool times in order to respire so that they provide nutrients for the plant effortlessly and water.
Red blood cells answer should be 'tissues' ?
Fossils are incomplete because:
- the soft tissue decays overtime
- the fossils do not always form
- there are still fossils yet to be found, as they remain undiscovered.

The chamber question, i think it was 3 times thicker?
Obviously the left hand side has thicker walls because the heart gets contracted and has high pressure as it pumps blood to the rest of the body?

I got 2.55 times bigger, no idea what I was thinking...

I measured both and then divided the highest one by the lowest one, and got 2.55, will I get any marks?

I think that there'll be a range between 2 and 4, so it should be correct I got 3

Yeah, I got 3 as well
That circulatory system diagram messed me up.. But thanks God it didn't ask many questions and because I had knowledge of the blood vessels etc.
Leaf question was 'stomata' though isn't it? And the fertilisation question, the option was 'D' wasn't it? Both haploid.

Edexcel.

The question wasn't about limbs but it asked how can we link bla bla bla to prove something about evolution.

And there were 5 pictures of legs/arms or whatever. (Human, Whale, Bird, Horse, and one more.)
