    Biology Chapters 36-38 Test question 30

    My son just took the test for chapters 36-38 and he disagrees with the answer key for question 30. The question: A worker bee’s ovipositor is is for _____ purposes only. The answer key lists (c) reproduction as the correct answer, but he says that worker bees cannot reproduce. He would agree if it asked what the queen bee’s ovipositor is used for. He selected (a) defense because he said the worker bee’s stinger is a modified ovipositor.

    Can someone clarify whether this is an error in the answer key or give me an explanation as to why it is correct? Thank you very much!

            Dorinda,

            Rebecca ended up going straight from her vacation to a trip with her mom, so she is sorry she didn't get to you sooner. Here is her reply to your question:

            That is a mistake. The question should be revised to "The queen bee' s ovipositor" rather than "The worker bees." Sorry about that!

            We'll get it fixed in the guide.

            Tanya
