Don´t feel bad. Most people haven´t done much better than you did ;-)

Tolley
08-18-2008, 12:54 AM
I think its prefectly hard! If I had got above 80% i'd think well that was easy but it's much better as a challenge!

Kingfisher i checked out the average of the about 20 people who have done it so far is 50% so your like one question less.

KingFisher

Please explain quiz question #10
Question: Both aerobic and anaerobic bacteria require oxygen to live. Aerobic bacteria acquires oxygen from the air or from dissolved oxygen in the water. From where does anaerobic bacteria acquire oxygen?

Dissolved oxygen in the water
Nitrite
Air
Nitrate

As per this site and my limited knowledge of the subject the word anerobic means abscence or avoidance of oxygen?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denitrifying_bacteria

Denitrifying bacteria form a necessary part of the process known as denitrification as part of the nitrogen cycle, their primary purpose being to metabolise nitrogenous compounds, with the assistance of the nitrase reductase enzyme, to turn oxides back to nitrogen gas or nitrous oxides for energy generation. This process takes place only in the absence of oxygen, as most denitrifying bacteria are essentially anaerobic and the nitrase reductase can only be synthethised under anaerobic circumstances. This is the main reason why denitrification mostly occurs in the deep substrata of the soil, or in areas of stagnant water.

Oh and the worlds most popular freshwater fish both sold and collected is the Goldfish which surpasses all other fish by quite a bit...hehehe

Oh BTW I got 50% it was alot of fun...good quiz over all

ILuvMyGoldBarb
08-18-2008, 05:49 AM
Goldfish are not collected, they are all tank and farm bred and raised thus they do not surpass all other fish in this area. :)
Also, you need to read question 10 carefully.

well then "collected" is the source of my issue cause I took it as Collected by hobyists..as in "I collect goldfish"....lol

and as for question 10 they do not get oxygen that is my point they are anerobic..as in the very reason they are called anerobic is because they do not use require oxygen....(if I spelled that right..lol)

The 10th question is right. It is a little tricky, granted, but correct even though the fact you present from Wikipedia is correct as well.

How can that be?
Figure out the answer to the question;-)

William
08-18-2008, 05:52 PM
All results have been deleted and people can take the quiz a new.

ANyway. The result have been reset. Everyone can try again. Who will be second to complete it?

That's really a shame guys. The point of this quiz was also to help people learn some things that they may not have known. That is why there are some very hard questions on there. The hope is that those who take it will take it until they get 100% on it and learn something. Every question here is a question that I have answered at one time or another on either this forum or others I posted on in the past.

08-20-2008, 02:53 PM
