AAMC FL 3 PS Q4

Would you be able to explain a little better why D is a better answer choice than C ? I understood the part where two brain regions would control two actions that are not related to each other as proposed by Paragraph one. But I don't see what makes D a better answer choice.

Re: NS FL 10 P/C Q30

I see, so the definition of an antioxidant that you are proposing here is that: an antioxidant molecule is that molecule that can oxidize to donate its electrons to the reactive species (namely OH* in your example).

NS FL 10 P/C Q30

I had the idea that an antioxidant is a molecule capable of scavenging electrons from reactive species as such I thought molecules that act as antioxidants gain electrons which is the definition of a reduction.

Re: NS FL 9 BB Q 1

Thank you for answering my question and I feel like you hit the nail in the head by saying that neutralizing the toxin will not prevent the bacteria from reproducing which eventually will lead to the bacteria being able to overcome the treatment. definitely focusing in destroying cell machinery is k...

thank you for your response. I understand how the word "may" can influence the strength of the answer choice and I see how analyzing costs is beyond the scope of the table. but in regards to this question would you be able to assume significance based on R^2 values such as the ones presented in the ...
