Anthropology

Question 1

1 / 1 pts

Which of the following bones provides evidence that a fossil animal was bipedal?

  

the pelvis and the foot

  

the pelvis

  

the hand

  

the foot

 

 

Question 2

1 / 1 pts

Derived characters are traits:

  

that characterize the last common ancestor of a particular collection of species

  

that are less well suited to the environment than ancestral characters

  

that are more complicated than ancestral characters

  

that have evolved after the last common ancestor of a particular collection of species

 

 

Question 3

1 / 1 pts

Sahelanthropus chadensis is considered a hominin due to

  

its larger brain size

  

its bipedally adapted femur

  

the placement of its foramen magnum

  

its lack of a tail

 

 

Question 4

1 / 1 pts

Characteristics that make a hominioid into a hominid include

  

reduced canine size

  

all of these

  

larger brains in relation to body size

  

bipedalism

 

 

Question 5

0 / 1 pts

The earliest potential hominins (Sahelanthropus, Orrorin, Ardipithecus)

 

date to between 10-14 million years ago in African strata

  

all of these

  

each looked like what you might expect in a species close in time to the last common ancestor of Pan and Homo: mostly primitive, but with a few derived characteristics

  

each have numerous synapomorphies with later hominins that prove each of these genera belong in our tribe, Hominini

 

 

Question 6

0 / 1 pts

Which fossil taxon is the most definite early hominin?

 

Australopithecus anamensis

  

Sahelanthropus tchadensis

  

Ardipithecus ramidus

  

Orrorin tugenensis

 

 

Question 7

0 / 1 pts

Pliocene hominins were living in:

  

Savannah (open) habitats

  

Mountain (high altitude) habitats

  

Jungle (closed) habitats

  

Mosaic (mixed closed and open) habitats

 

 

Question 8

1 / 1 pts

Orrorin tugenesis may be the earliest hominin because it has a thigh bone that the discoverers say is designed for bipedality. 

  

True

  

False

 

 

Question 9

1 / 1 pts

Bipedal walking evolved in hominins before the expansion of brain size. 

  

True

  

False

 

 

Question 10

1 / 1 pts

Hominin emergence is characterized by the simultaneous appearance of bipedalism, toolmaking behavior, and a large brain.

  

True

  

False
