• A.

The middle line

• B.

The front line

• C.

The rear line

• D.

The centre of the board

D. The centre of the board
Explanation
At the start of the game, the Queen is placed in the centre of the board. This is because the Queen is considered to be one of the most powerful pieces on the chessboard and placing her in the centre allows for greater flexibility and control over the game. Additionally, being in the centre provides the Queen with the ability to influence different areas of the board and potentially participate in various strategic maneuvers.

• A.

7

• B.

15

• C.

6

• D.

8

C. 6
Explanation
In a circle, there are typically six pieces that surround the Queen. This is because a circle is divided into 360 degrees, and each piece occupies 60 degrees. Since there are six pieces, they evenly distribute around the Queen, forming a complete circle.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### Which of the following is true?

• A.

If the Queen is pocketed but not covered, the Queen is returned to the board.

• B.

It doesn't matter if the Queen is pocketed or not.

• C.

The Queen cannot be covered when pocketed.

• D.

The Queen can only be covered when there is a foul.

A. If the Queen is pocketed but not covered, the Queen is returned to the board.
Explanation
If the Queen is pocketed but not covered, it means that if the Queen is successfully pocketed by a player but is not subsequently covered by another piece, it will be returned to the board. This suggests that in the game being referred to, there is a rule that requires the Queen to be covered after being pocketed in order to keep it out of play.
