Word Count: 1600 words
10% allowance over the word count.
Use the citation to the endpoint in each response
stick to OpenStax and Lumen Learning, or A-Level Biology textbooks
Try to give additional specific facts and details like numerical information, specific cellular/histological details.
Reduced the surrounding wording or opening sentences to instead directly describe or explain versus the question/AC instructions
Extra factual additions to cover a wider array of detail relative to the criteria.
