We also know that everyone likes to study differently, so we offer three different ways to use your CLEP Biology practice exams:

  • Timed CLEP Biology Practice Test Mode: Timed tests are just like the CLEP Biology exam. Our system sets the test time to the same time limit, or time limit per question, that you will experience with the actual exam on test day. This is a great method of practicing your pacing, especially if you're concerned about completing your exam within the time limit.

  • Untimed CLEP Biology Practice Test Mode: With this option, you can take your time and thoroughly consider each question before answering. This rush-free mode is recommended for those dipping their toes into exam prep or just starting on their journey to take the CLEP Biology. It is a great way to test your knowledge with no time limit and highlight blind spots you will need to come back to in your studies - one of the many advantages of taking CLEP Biology practice exams with Exam Edge!

  • CLEP Biology Study Guide Mode: Not sure where to even begin with your studying? Try a practice test in explanation mode. The questions act as a study guide, giving you the option to see the answers as you take the test. Study guide mode is an effective way to review the CLEP Biology exam subject matter before you take the exam in a timed format. We recommend taking a practice test in explanation mode and taking thorough notes as the best method for beginning your test prep.

CLEP Biology - Features Sample Questions

Which of the following is not correctly matched with its trophic level?

Correct Answer:
phytoplankton–secondary consumer.

the question asks to identify which pair is not correctly matched with its corresponding trophic level. trophic levels are positions that organisms occupy in a food chain, reflecting their roles in the ecosystem's energy flow. understanding these roles is crucial to correctly matching organisms to their respective trophic levels.

let's examine each option: - **grasshopper – primary consumer**: grasshoppers are herbivores that feed on plants. in the ecological food chain, primary consumers are organisms that consume primary producers (such as plants and algae). therefore, categorizing grasshoppers as primary consumers is correct. - **phytoplankton – secondary consumer**: phytoplankton are microscopic organisms that reside in watery environments and are capable of photosynthesis. they are foundational to aquatic ecosystems, serving as primary producers. primary producers convert solar energy into chemical energy (biomass) through photosynthesis, which supports other life forms in the ecosystem. contrary to the label in the question, phytoplankton are not secondary consumers but primary producers. secondary consumers are typically carnivorous or omnivorous and feed on primary consumers. - **cyanobacteria – primary producer**: cyanobacteria, like phytoplankton, are photosynthetic organisms often found in aquatic settings. they play a similar role to phytoplankton by producing organic matter from inorganic substances through photosynthesis, rightly placing them as primary producers. - **eagle – tertiary consumer**: eagles are predators that often sit at the top of the food chain. they typically consume secondary consumers (such as snakes or large fish), which makes them tertiary consumers. this categorization is correct as it accurately reflects their role in the ecosystem.

from the analysis, it is clear that the pair "phytoplankton – secondary consumer" is not correctly matched. phytoplankton should be classified as primary producers, not secondary consumers. they are fundamental in the aquatic food chains, serving as the base level that supports all other aquatic life forms. thus, the correct answer to the question is the option that identifies phytoplankton as secondary consumers, which is an incorrect match.

A diploid human cell contains 46 chromosomes. At the end of meiosis I, how many chromosomes are present in each cell?

Correct Answer:
23 chromosomes

meiosis is a type of cell division that reduces the number of chromosomes in the parent cell by half and produces four gamete cells. this process is divided into two stages: meiosis i and meiosis ii. it is essential for sexual reproduction and contributes to genetic diversity.

in humans, each body cell normally contains 46 chromosomes, organized into 23 pairs. these pairs consist of one chromosome from each parent, making the cell diploid. at the start of meiosis i, each chromosome duplicates itself, resulting in two copies of each chromosome, called sister chromatids, which remain attached at a point called the centromere.

during meiosis i, the cell undergoes several phases, starting with prophase i, where homologous chromosomes (one from each parent) pair up in a process called synapsis. this pairing is crucial as it allows for crossing-over, a process where homologous chromosomes exchange segments of dna, enhancing genetic diversity. following synapsis, during metaphase i, these pairs line up at the cell's equator. in anaphase i, the spindle fibers pull each homologous chromosome pair towards opposite poles of the cell. this step is pivotal as it halves the chromosome number. finally, telophase i and cytokinesis conclude the division, resulting in two daughter cells.

each of these two daughter cells at the end of meiosis i contains 23 chromosomes. however, it's important to note that each chromosome still consists of two sister chromatids. therefore, although the chromosome number is halved (from 46 to 23), each chromosome is still duplicated. the cell at this point is considered haploid because it contains only one set of chromosomes, one from each original homologous pair, but each chromosome still consists of two chromatids.

following meiosis i, meiosis ii occurs in each of the two haploid cells. meiosis ii resembles a typical mitotic division, where the 23 chromosomes (each with two chromatids) line up, and the sister chromatids are then separated and pulled to opposite poles by the spindle fibers. this results in four haploid cells, each with 23 single chromatids. these cells are the gametes - in males, they develop into sperm cells, and in females, into oocytes.

therefore, at the end of meiosis i, each cell has 23 chromosomes, each consisting of two chromatids. this setup is crucial for the subsequent phase, meiosis ii, where these chromatids will be separated, leading to the formation of gametes with genetically distinct single-chromatid chromosomes.
