    A Barr body is a normal occurance in a female. Basically it is one of the X chromosomes being silenced to prevent over expression of proteins encoded by genes found there.

    90 cm3 per kg per hour is the oxygen demand.

    The mass of fish is 0.4 kg, reducing the oxygen demand to 90 x 0.4 = 36 cm3 per hour

    The volume of oxygen absorbed per dm3 of water is 7 cm3.

    This means 36/7 = 5.14 dm3 of water needed to supply this (per hour)

    And for the last bit. Increasing temperature reduces the solubility of gases in water. The higher the temperature the less oxygen dissolves in water. This means more water would need to flow over the gills to supply the same amount of oxygen to the fish.
