Why must they be unambiguously recognizable? 12) How does the use of H II regions to find a galaxy's distance differ from the use of Cepheid variables? 13) What assumptions do we make when we use the Hubble constant to estimate the distance to a galaxy? 14) Why can't evolution go from elliptical to spiral to irregular? 15) What evidence do we have that large galaxies cannibalize small galaxies?
