comment Why does Penicillin only affect bacterial cell walls
@RoryM: That is not totally correct, penicillin does affect some gram negative bacteria but it is not very effective. There are other ß-lactams that do affect gram-negative bacteria such as Carbenicillin.

comment Which plants live for more than one year and less than two years?
Are these homework questions? If so you should be tagging it as homework. But please keep in mind that stackexchange sites aren't here to do your homework for you.
