    • C.

      Equal to a centimeter

    • D.

      None of these

    • E.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. Bigger than a centimeter
    Explanation
    An inch is bigger than a centimeter because the inch is a larger unit of measurement than the centimeter. In the metric system, 1 inch is equal to 2.54 centimeters. Therefore, any measurement in inches will be greater than the equivalent measurement in centimeters.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    One inch is equal to

    • A.

      2cm

    • B.

      2.3cm

    • C.

      2.45cm

    • D.

      2.54cm

    Correct Answer
    D. 2.54cm
    Explanation
    One inch is equal to 2.54cm. This is a well-known conversion factor used to convert measurements between the imperial system (inches) and the metric system (centimeters). It is derived from the definition that 1 inch is equal to exactly 2.54 centimeters. Therefore, when converting inches to centimeters, the value is multiplied by 2.54.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Which of these is bigger than a millimeter?

    • A.

      Centimeter

    • B.

      Feet

      Meter

    • D.

      All of these

    Correct Answer
    D. All of these
    Explanation
    All of these options (centimeter, feet, meter) are bigger than a millimeter. A millimeter is a unit of length in the metric system, and it is equal to one thousandth of a meter. A centimeter is equal to one hundredth of a meter, which is bigger than a millimeter. Similarly, a foot is approximately 0.3048 meters, and a meter is equal to one meter, both of which are also bigger than a millimeter. Therefore, all of these options are correct.

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    B. Celsius
    Explanation
    Temperature is measured in Celsius. Celsius is a widely used unit for measuring temperature in the metric system. It is based on the Celsius scale, which sets the freezing point of water at 0 degrees Celsius and the boiling point at 100 degrees Celsius at standard atmospheric pressure. This scale is commonly used in scientific and everyday applications around the world, making it the correct answer for measuring temperature.

      Millimeter

    Correct Answer
    B. Liter
    Explanation
    Liquid is measured in liters because liters are a unit of volume commonly used for measuring liquids. Kilograms are used to measure mass, centimeters and millimeters are used to measure length or distance. Therefore, liters is the correct unit of measurement for liquids.

    Correct Answer
    C. 1000 grams
    Explanation
    One kilogram is equal to 1000 grams. This is a standard conversion in the metric system. Kilogram is a unit of mass and gram is a smaller unit within the same system. Therefore, when converting from kilograms to grams, you multiply the value by 1000.

    Liters is a unit of volume and is used to measure the capacity of liquid substances. Height, on the other hand, is a measurement of distance and is typically measured in units such as meters, centimeters, or feet. Therefore, it is not appropriate to measure height in liters as it does not represent a distance measurement.
