      A tree

    • D.

      A fruit.

    Correct Answer
    B. A mushroom.
    Explanation
    A mushroom is the correct answer because it is a type of room that does not have any doors or windows. Mushrooms are fungi that grow underground or on decaying matter, forming a closed structure that resembles a room. Unlike flowers, trees, or fruits, mushrooms do not have any openings or access points, making them a suitable answer to the question.

    Correct Answer

      A TV

    • D.

      A telephone.

    Correct Answer
    D. A telephone.
    Explanation
    A telephone is the correct answer because it is a device that allows people to communicate by speaking to each other, without the need for the person on the other end to ask any questions. The other options, such as a remote control, radio, and TV, do not fit the description as they do not involve direct communication or answering without being asked a question.

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    A. An egg.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "An egg." When an egg is cracked open, the white part of the egg is initially on top and appears white, while the yolk is yellow. Therefore, when the egg goes up (is cracked open) it is white, and when it comes down (is cooked or consumed) it is yellow.

    Correct Answer

    Take off my skin -- I won't cry, but you will! What am I?

    • A.

      Garlic

    • B.

      An apple

    • C.

      A orange

    • D.

      An onion.

    Correct Answer
    D. An onion.
    Explanation
    An onion is the correct answer because when you peel off its skin, it releases a chemical compound that irritates the eyes, causing them to tear up. This is a common experience when cutting onions in the kitchen. Garlic, an apple, and an orange do not have the same effect when their skin is removed.
