What would you expect the chromatogram to look like?
Here are your potential answers…
What would a chromatogram from outside the hive look like?
We’ve already got 2 examples of chromatograms in the graphs above, but
neither of them were taken outside the hive. Let’s take a look.
Figure A, shown here, was taken inside the hive at the dance floor, where bees were dancing
and releasing certain compounds that are indicated by peaks A through D.
Figure B was taken inside the hive, but away from the dance floor.
The lack of peaks is from the lack of waggle dance compounds being released there.
So what might we get from a chromatogram taken outside the hive entirely?
Well, we can assume that since bees only perform the waggle dance in one specific area inside
the beehive, we probably won’t be seeing those waggle dance compounds on the chromatogram.
That means no peaks.
The only possible answer that fits that assumption would be B:
“It should lack peaks A through D”
Our answer is B, as in Bee stings.
Guys, no, come on, we’ve been over this.
