I'm not sure... I was in a hurry and I don't really remember how I wrote but I think my answer was by mitosis so genetically identical cells grow and then tissues are made. I think include sth abt stem cells too as I really don't have the idea of what the question wants to focus on... 😢 most questions this time were like that I guess

IKR!!! They seemed so vague! I hope we all did okay tho 💚 I wrote something about mitosis too and turning genes on and off. Fingers crossed 🤞

I said it blocks the exit way so the sperms don't escape, a greater volume inside the female, greater chance of fertilisation. Also, since it's inserted, the sperms have to travel a shorter distance

What did you write? If its hollistic you can probs get the marks and I'm not 100 sure if mines right so theres still hope.

And I dont quite remember the question, just that it was odd. It was the one below 'How can both flamingos survive in the same habitat' or smth

I just wrote to increase chances for fertilisation to occure by preventing rhe escape of the sperm or it being whisked away by the water
