b. more like other protists than members of other kingdoms.
c. prokaryotes.
d. reclassified as scientists learn more about their diversity.


Answer 1
Answer: d. reclassified as scientists learn more about their diversity.

Protists obtain food in 3 ways. They produce their own organic molecules, ingest, and absorb.  Ingestive protists ingest food, or engulf bacteria. These protists extend their cell wall and cell membrane forming a food vacuole around the food item. Inside the food vacuole, enzymes digest the food. Absorptive protists on the other hand, absorb food molecules  across their cell membrane which takes place through diffusion. Absorptive protists play a key role in decomposition. They are considered as important decomposers. Major producers  like photosynthetic protists  use light energy to manufacture  their own food.

Part A The mandibular condyle __________. The mandibular condyle __________. is the opening through which blood vessels and nerves to the lower lip and skin of the chin pass is the line of fusion between the two halves of the mandible articulates with the temporal bone to form the temporomandibular joint is the opening through which the alveolar nerve passes is the site of insertion for the temporalis muscle.



articulates with the temporal bone to form the temporomandibular joint


The mandible is the lower bone of the lower jaw of the human face which consists of the ramus and the front bones and teeth.

The mandible contains an articular structure for articulation called "condyle" which help in the formation of temporomandibular joints. The temporomandibular joint is the joint formed between the lower jaw or mandible and the temporal bone of the skull. This allows the free movement of the lower jaw.

Thus, the selected option is the correct answer.

Answer: Articulates with the temporal bone to form the temporo-mandibular joint.


The mandibular condyle articulates with the temporal bone at the mandibular fossa. The temporal bone consists of concave depression at the squamous portion.

The mandibular condyle and the temporal bone are separated by the articular disc, it divides the joint into two distinct type of compartments. The function of the temporomandibular joint is to connect the jaw bone with the skull.
