  Let’s consider a specific example of a typical biology exam question to see how this three-step method works.

  Cell A is a roughly spherical animal cell with a radius of 10 microns. Cell B is also roughly spherical and has a radius of 20 microns. Which of the following statements about these two cells is false?

  1. Cell A has a smaller volume than cell B.
  2. Cell B has a larger surface area than cell A.
  3. Cell A has a larger surface area-to-volume ratio than does cell B.
  4. Cell B has a larger surface area-to-volume ratio than does cell A.
