C. Wednesday

### A hole 3 feet by 9 feet by 5 yards is dug. How many cubic feet of dirt are in the hole?

• A.

405

• B.

135

• C.

42

• D.

3240

B. 135
Explanation
To find the volume of the hole, we need to multiply its length, width, and height. The dimensions given are 3 feet by 9 feet by 5 yards. Since there are 3 feet in 1 yard, the height of the hole is 5 yards x 3 feet/yard = 15 feet. Multiplying the length, width, and height, we get 3 feet x 9 feet x 15 feet = 405 cubic feet. Therefore, the correct answer is 405, not 135.

### Which is correct: Five and nine "is" thirteen, or five and nine "are" thirteen?

• A.

Is

• B.

Are

• C.

Neither

• D.

Both

C. Neither
Explanation
The sentence "Five and nine 'is' thirteen" is grammatically incorrect because the subject, "five and nine," is plural, so the correct verb form should be "are" instead of "is." Similarly, the sentence "Five and nine 'are' thirteen" is also incorrect because the subject, "five and nine," is not equal to thirteen. Therefore, the correct answer is "neither" because both options are grammatically incorrect.

Explanation
A greenhouse is made of glass because it is a structure that is primarily made of transparent or translucent materials, such as glass, to allow sunlight to enter and create a warm environment for plants to grow. Unlike the red and yellow houses mentioned in the question, which are made of bricks, a greenhouse is specifically designed to optimize sunlight exposure for plants.
