BACAAEBD, took a little over 10 mins to get this done. i did not use any paper/pen to take notes , but the timing stinks . should ideally take 4-6 minutes. but weird passages take one or two minutes to adjust to the material presented.

thats the bad part, to speed up the adjustment to the passage some new strategy is needed

My answer are : BACAACBD

OA is 1B 2A 3C 4A 5A 6E 7B 8D

6th was wrong as correct answer E - structure looks little awkward so meaning looks little distorted at first attempt

Any reason for not selecting C for 5)..The passage does end with statements that using both synthesis and degradation shall be a good option here.Hence C would be correct..

Or wouldn't it?

This is my first ever post so please pardon my ignorance. But this passage pops up as sub-600 and 600-700/700 - which is it?

Anyway, I got BACAAEBD in 12.5 minutes. My D was a "light" guess because the passage is long (!).

Since there seem to be a few queries on question 5, and partly for my own record keeping, the key point is in the second paragraph: However, recent investigations have shown that the concentrations of most mRNA’s correlate best, not with their synthesis rate, but rather with the equally variable rates at which cells degrade the different mRNA’s in their cytoplasm. If a cell degrades both a rapidly and a slowly synthesized mRNA slowly, both mRNA’s will accumulate to high levels.

You're trying to find an answer that boosts protein levels. This line tells you to ignore the synthesis rate and focus only on the degradation rate. I think C is a trick answer because the last line in the passage refers to the most efficient regulation of protein production, not what's going to maximise protein production.

All correct in 8 min. As a molecular biologist, it is great to see a passage in my field.
