    I chose the answer that said no evolution was occuring. Was I right?
    People are saying that divergent evolution is occuring.

    I am just glad that i did not need to use any supplementary paper and did not had to write my ID and centre number, cause writing those things are so annoying.

    Re: HSC Biology Exam [Discussion]

    Communication option was alright tbh, I didnt study like anything about the brain, but thankfully none of it was in the actual exam, exam honestly didnt seem ultra hard, hopefully my results agree lmao

    Re: HSC Biology Exam [Discussion]

    I said something along the lines of how in a species there are individuals who are best suited, etc, and then went on to say how the allele coding for the best trait is codominant, but the resulting offspring are all infertile if bred with another individual whom is codominant (MRMR), so why other individuals had to breed with them, and then linked it all or someshit.

    How did everyone explain the communication question worth 2 marks about the light from two objects? One was a sharp angle upwards and the other was straight on.
