Problem

Which of the following types of data could be compared during the construction of a phylogenetic tree? 

a. Amino acid sequences of the same protein from two individuals of the same species 

b. Base sequences of two different genes from two individuals of the same species 

c. Amino acid sequences of two different proteins from the same individual 

d. Base sequences of the same gene from two individuals of different species 


Refer to the table below.

The table summarizes base sequences of homologous regions of DNA in four different organisms. According to these data, which two organisms would be separated by the largest distance on a phylogenetic tree? 

a. C and D 

b. A and C 

c. B and C 

d. D and A
