Re: Homeostasis, an animals maintenance of certain internal variables wit [#permalink]
Q1)Which of the following most accurately states the purpose of the passage?

The passage explains homeostasis (maintenance of certain internal variables within an acceptable range) in the first paragraph and then goes on to explain, in the subsequent paragraphs, how different organisms cope to maintain Homeostasis. So option C gives us the entire purpose of the passage.

Q2) It can be inferred from the passage that some mechanisms that regulate internal body temperature, like sweating and panting, can lead to which of the following?

The answer to this can be inferred from the 2nd paragraph; lines(these rats stay in burrows during the hot part of the day, thus avoiding loss of fluid through panting or sweating, which are regulatory mechanisms for maintaining internal body temperature by evaporative cooling).

Q3) It can be inferred from the passage that the author characterizes the camel’s kidney as “entirely unexceptional” (line 26) primarily to emphasize that it

In 2nd paragraph,last line (desert rats’ kidneys can excrete a urine having twice as high a salt content as seawater), the author talks about how rat's kidneys are exceptional in helping them maintain homeostasis. The author hence mentions the kidney of camels to be unexceptional as it does not help them in coping with the water loss. Hence answer option B.
