You have just learned that evolutionary adaptations are passed from parents to offspring. This process is called [h-], and it is one of the basic characteristics of life. All living organisms pass genetic information to their offspring. You have just learned that evolutionary adaptations are passed from parents to offspring.

DNA stands for [...]. MEMORIZE THIS!!! DNA stands for de-oxy-ribo-nucleic acid. MEMORIZE THIS!!!
deoxy is chemistry jargon for 'having less [...] than other versions of the same compound' deoxy is chemistry jargon for 'having less oxygen than other versions of the same compound'
DNA includes a sugar called 'ribose', but this version of ribose has fewer oxygen atoms than regular ribose does, so we call it [...]-ribose (=less-oxygen ribose).
