SECTION II. SHORT PARAGRAPH QUESTIONS (25m) Answer each of the
following four questions in full sentences. Do not use point form.
5. (8m) Current theories suggest that life arose through chemical
evolution and that the first living molecule was RNA. All living
things are able to maintain internal homeostasis and to pass
genetic information to their offspring. Describe a possible
scenario in which natural selection acted on a population of
protobionts (protocells) containing various forms of RNA. Also,
describe how the first living cells in an ancestral RNA world were
able to both maintain homeostasis and pass on genetic
information.
