*Base your answers to questions 7 – 11 on the information and graph below.
A gardener performs an experiment growing three types of plants in equal amounts of soil. Three
different types of plants are used. Each plant is 10 centimeters tall at the beginning of the experiment.

experiment, on what day were plant 2 & 3
the same height? __________

10 CM TALL IN THE FIRST EXPERIMENT.
12. The diagram below shows a leaf that has been partially covered with black paper for three days.
When the black paper is removed, the area that was
covered by the paper has turned white. The white section
of the leaf tests negative for the presence of sugar and the
green section tests positive for the presence of sugar.
Explain why the white and green sections of the leaf have
different sugar test results.
THE WHITE SECTION DID NOT MAKE ANY FOOD BECAUSE IT DID NOT RECEIVE ANY LIGHT.

taller plants will have more blossoms and performs the following experiment to test this hypothesis. Two
groups of 10 plants each are grown in identical pots filled with equal amounts of identical soil. The
amount of sunlight, the room temperature, and the amount of water are constant for both groups. Group A
