Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Reading Comprehension-Pages 49-51.What is the same about all the ways to feed birds in the selection?

    • A.

      They all are made form pine cones.

    • B.

      They all use milk cartons.

    • C.

      They all are put in a tree.

    • D.

      They all must be made with peanuts.

    Correct Answer
    C. They all are put in a tree.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that all the ways to feed birds in the selection are put in a tree. This means that regardless of whether they are made from pine cones, use milk cartons, or must be made with peanuts, they all share the common characteristic of being placed in a tree.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Reading Comprehension-Pages 49-51.How is the milk carton different from the pine cone bird feeder?

    • A.

      It has a flap.

    • B.

      It uses birdseed.

    • C.

      It goes in a tree.

    Correct Answer
    A. It has a flap.
    Explanation
    The milk carton is different from the pine cone bird feeder because it has a flap. This suggests that the milk carton has a cover or lid that can be opened and closed, while the pine cone bird feeder does not have this feature. The flap on the milk carton may be used to pour milk or other liquids into the carton, or to seal it shut to prevent spills or contamination. The pine cone bird feeder, on the other hand, likely does not require a flap since it is filled with birdseed and does not need to be opened or closed.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Reading Comprehension-Pages 49-51.What must  birds do to eat the peanuts that they don't need to do with food on the pine cone?

    • A.

      Stand on a flap

    • B.

      Crack the nuts

    • C.

      Open a window

    • D.

      Find a good tree

    Correct Answer
    B. Crack the nuts
    Explanation
    Birds must crack the nuts in order to eat them. Unlike the food on the pine cone, which they can easily access, the peanuts require the birds to use their beaks or other tools to crack open the shells and reach the edible part inside.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Reading Comprehension-Pages 49-51.How are the pine cone and the milk carton bird feeders the same?

    • A.

      Both use peanut butter.

    • B.

      Both need flaps.

    • C.

      Both use peanuts.

    • D.

      Both use birdseed.

    Correct Answer
    D. Both use birdseed.
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "Both use birdseed." This means that both the pine cone and the milk carton bird feeders require birdseed as the main ingredient to attract and feed birds. Both feeders may have different designs or materials, but the common factor is the use of birdseed to fulfill their purpose of feeding birds.

    • C.

      Yarn

    • D.

      Peanuts

    Correct Answer
    C. Yarn
    Explanation
    Yarn is used for all the bird feeders in the selection. This implies that the bird feeders are made using yarn as a material. The passage might have mentioned different materials for different bird feeders, and yarn is the common material used for all of them. The other options, such as milk carton, pine cone, and peanuts, may be mentioned in the passage but are not used for all the bird feeders.

    Correct Answer
    A. It tells what the writer thinks.
    Explanation
    The sentence "I think it's the best tool to use to see things in the pond" indicates that the statement is an opinion. The use of the word "think" suggests that it is the writer's personal belief or viewpoint rather than a verifiable fact. Opinions are subjective and can vary from person to person, while facts are objective and can be proven or disproven. Therefore, the presence of the phrase "I think" in the sentence indicates that it is an opinion.
