male genotype - XY
female genotype - XX
female phenotype- ovaries
1b) the presence of the Y chromosone means the protein called tetesterone is produced which creates the male reproductive organ called the testes. The absence of the Y chromosone on the female means the embryo just develops ovaries.
- tick box question on phytoplankton
- decomposition of plants and respiration
PH question -
(stated at the top that the PH increases when carbon dioxide levels decrease)
therefore carbon dioxide is a non-living indicator and can be used to measure environmental change in the water. if the ph of the water increases then this shows that carbon dioixde levels are low , therefore minimises the risk of global warming. OR , if the ph level is low , this indicates that c02 levels are high and global warming may occur.
- Efficiency question was 0.2( 1 significant figure)
