    • D.

      A soccer ball

    Correct Answer
    C. A tennis ball with reduced pressure
    Explanation
    A tennis ball with reduced pressure is used because it allows for slower gameplay and more control. By reducing the pressure inside the ball, it becomes softer and less bouncy, making it easier to hit and control. This is often done in certain situations, such as when playing on clay courts or for beginner players who are still developing their skills.

    Correct Answer
    C. Solid with no strings

    Correct Answer
    C. They must be underhand
    Explanation
    Serves must be executed underhand. This means that the player must swing their arm below their waist and release the ball with an upward motion. This technique is commonly used in sports such as volleyball and badminton, as it allows for better control and accuracy when serving the ball. Overhand serves, on the other hand, involve swinging the arm above the shoulder and are typically used in sports like tennis and baseball.
