    Correct Answer
    C. To eat grass
    Explanation
    The elephant trunk is a versatile and highly adaptable organ that serves various purposes. It is used for drinking water, as it can suck up large amounts of water and then spray it into the mouth. The trunk is also used for blowing air, allowing elephants to cool themselves or create loud trumpeting sounds. Additionally, the trunk is used for grasping and picking up food, but it is not specifically designed for eating grass. Elephants primarily use their trunks to gather and consume a wide variety of vegetation, including leaves, fruits, and bark.

      Giraffe

    Correct Answer
    D. Giraffe
    Explanation
    The giraffe has the longest legs among these animals. Giraffes are known for their long necks, and their legs are also proportionally long, allowing them to reach high branches for food. This adaptation helps them survive in their natural habitat, where they can browse on leaves that are out of reach for other animals. The long legs also enable giraffes to run at high speeds, making them agile and able to escape from predators.

    Explanation
    The bird's beak serves multiple purposes, including eating, killing prey, and feeding younger birds. The beak is a versatile tool that allows the bird to grasp and manipulate food for consumption. It can also be used as a weapon to catch and kill prey. Additionally, adult birds use their beaks to feed and care for their young, regurgitating food into their mouths. Therefore, all of these options accurately describe the purpose of the bird's beak.

Their front legs are well-developed and equipped with strong muscles and sharp claws, allowing them to deliver powerful strikes and maintain balance during hunting and fighting. This strength in their front legs is a key advantage for tigers in their natural habitat.

    Snakes use their fangs to inject venom into their prey. Fangs are long, hollow teeth located in the front of the snake's mouth. When the snake bites its prey, venom is released through the fangs into the victim's body. This venom helps the snake immobilize or kill its prey, making it easier to consume. The fangs are a crucial adaptation for snakes, allowing them to efficiently capture and subdue their food.
