comment Do human somatic cells have 46 chromosomes all the time?
@Vladimir In one nuclei, they have more than 46 chromosomes. See nature.com/nature/journal/v467/n7316/edsumm/e101007-09.html

comment 3-minute long inspiring videos on evolutionary biology
@James Oh you are right. But I think you can use that video in a productive way. Show it to "inspire" students and then prick the balloon by carefully explaining why the argument is not acceptable to biologists even if it is so seductive.

I think you should show your students a video by a creationist on why evolution is not true. That would certainly inspire them to appreciate the logic of evolution ;)

Yes that's true. But maybe the question is just targetting that general knowledge. Anyway, it isn't a very good question. Typical of exams that just test your cramming capacity :(
