    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    In Canada, the season that comes before Fall is Summer. During the Summer season, the weather is typically warm, and it is a time when people enjoy outdoor activities such as swimming, hiking, and barbecues. As the Summer season comes to an end, the weather starts to cool down, and the leaves on trees change color, marking the transition into the Fall season.

      December

    • D.

      September

    Correct Answer
    D. September
    Explanation
    Autumn starts in the Northern hemisphere in September. This is because the autumnal equinox, when day and night are roughly equal in length, usually occurs around September 22nd or 23rd. After the equinox, the days gradually become shorter and the weather starts to cool down, marking the beginning of autumn.

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    B. Days Get Shorter
    Explanation
    During the fall season, the days gradually become shorter. This is because the tilt of the Earth's axis causes the sun's rays to hit the Northern Hemisphere at a lower angle, resulting in less daylight. As a result, the duration of daylight decreases, making the days shorter. This phenomenon is one of the defining characteristics of the fall season.
