I have a response from a student that looks to be copy and paste on an open response questions. The font looks odd,

 

DNA replication is said to be "semi-conservative" because each new DNA molecule contains one strand from the original molecule and one newly synthesized strand.

 

 

Everyone else's font looks like the sample below from another question she answered-

 

Cells must reproduce themselves by dividing to produce two new daughter cells. This is so that each cell contains genetic information from parent cells and new genetic information built from the new cell. If a mistake is, then a cell would have the potential to render a gene dysfunctional or useless.

 

 

What are the chances this student cheated by copy and pasting?
