    If a modern electron microscope (TEM) can resolve biological images to the nanometer level, as opposed to the best light microscope, this is due to which of the following?

    A) Electron beams have much shorter wavelengths than visible light.
    B) The electron microscope has much greater ratio of image size to real size.

    C) The focal length of the electron microscope is significantly longer.

    D) Contrast is enhanced by staining with atoms of heavy metal.

    E) The electron microscope cannot image whole cells at one time.

    A) Electron beams have much shorter wavelengths than visible light.

    A newspaper ad for a local toy store indicates that a very inexpensive microscope available for a small child is able to magnify specimens nearly as much as the much more costly microscope available in your college lab. What is the primary reason for the price difference?

    A) The toy microscope does not have the same fine control for focus of the specimen.

    B) The college microscope produces greater contrast in the specimens.

    C) The toy microscope usually uses a different wavelength of light source.

    D) The toy microscope magnifies a good deal, but has low resolution and therefore poor quality images.

    E) The ad agency is misrepresenting the ability of the toy microscope to magnify.

    D) The toy microscope magnifies a good deal, but has low resolution and therefore poor quality images.

    Why is it important to know what microscopy method was used to prepare the images you wish to study?

    A) so that you can interpret the correct biochemical process that is occurring

    B) so that you can judge whether the images you are seeing are of cells or of organelles

    C) so that you can make a judgment about the likelihood of artifacts having been introduced

    in the preparation

    D) so that you can know whether to view the image in color or not

    E) so that you can decide whether the image is actually of the size described

    C) so that you can make a judgment about the likelihood of artifacts having been introduced in the preparation

    B) plant cells are capable of having a much higher surface-to-volume ratio than animal cells.

    C) the basic functions of plant cells are very different from those of animal cells.

    D) animal cells are more spherical, while plant cells are elongated.

    E) plant cells have a much more highly convoluted (folded) plasma membrane than animal cells

    A) plant cells contain a large vacuole that reduces the volume of the cytoplasm
