    akalin24 should stop recalling and WORRYING about the question on the exam so much (it's not like anyone can do anything about it anymore). Just let it go man/woman..let it go..save your thinking and memory on something more useful. Have fun! Meet some new chix/guys and score with them :laugh: . MCAT scores come out in a few weeks till then move on with life :D . :idea:

    what about on verbal (in the icthysaurus) when they asked what an owls focal blahblah would be?

    the asnwers were like:
    less .9
    between 1.0 and 2.1
    over 2.1

    i dont even remember what i put, but i looked back in the passage and i couldnt find where this info could possibly be found

    indyzx,
    i had no idea, since the verbal section became a guessing game for me long before i reached this passage, but i think i guessed "b/w 1.0 and 2.1"...were we supposed to assume that owls can be nocturnal, then compare it to the nocturnal cat?

    i thought this was a cool question (cuz i like photography)

    low f stop = allows more light into the eye = better night vision

    i think nocturnal cats had 1.1 f-stop. the passage said that owls are even better, so <1....i think

    that's what I put. I think the passage stated that noctournal cats had .9 f. So knowing that owls are also noctournal, I put the only answer that fit, which was "less than 1.1".

    Your answer to the sperm/egg question was right, I'm like 99.999999999% certain.

    man, my brain went numb here. i looked back in the passage and tried to find the word "owl" but couldnt for some reason. i think i narrowed it down to "between 1.1-2.1" or "less than 1.1". unfortunately i think i picked the former.

    haha...that's what I did at first, too. But then realized owls weren't discussed (I think) in the passage.

    Ya! I put that the owl had an f stop less then 1.1 too. I guess I wasnt really thinking about the owl being nocturnal, I think I just had some flash back to some animal planet show about owls being able to see rodents from far away. So I thought they could see better then cats. It always seems when I get the right answer its for the wrong reasons though.
