• D.

A. None because it's already built.

### Some months have 31 days. Others have 30 days. How many have 28 days?

• A.

Two

• B.

One.

• C.

Every month has 28 days.

• D.

Chinese months have 28 days.

C. Every month has 28 days.
Explanation
The answer "Every month has 28 days" is correct because even though some months have more than 28 days, every month does indeed have at least 28 days. This is because the question does not specify that it is asking for the number of months that have ONLY 28 days, but rather how many have AT LEAST 28 days. Therefore, all months have 28 days or more.

Stairs

A Scale

• C.

A wheel.

• D.

The lift

A. Stairs
Explanation
Stairs go up and down, but they remain fixed in the same location. Unlike a scale, which can be moved around, or a wheel, which can roll, stairs are stationary and provide a means of moving between different levels of a building. Therefore, the correct answer is stairs.

### What can you never eat for breakfast?

• A.

Fruits

• B.

A whole turkey.

• C.

Dinner.

• D.

Eggs

C. Dinner.
Explanation
The correct answer is "Dinner" because dinner is a meal typically eaten in the evening, not in the morning for breakfast. Breakfast is the first meal of the day, and it usually consists of lighter options such as fruits or eggs. A whole turkey is also an unlikely breakfast choice, but dinner is the only option that is completely inappropriate for breakfast.

• A.

One hour

A. One hour

If one shirt dries in one hour, it means that each shirt takes one hour to dry individually. Therefore, if there are ten shirts, each shirt will still take one hour to dry. The number of shirts does not affect the time it takes for each individual shirt to dry.

Their slender body, long legs, and flexible spine contribute to their exceptional speed and acceleration. Cheetahs have evolved specific adaptations such as non-retractable claws and a lightweight build to maximize their running capabilities.

### A little girl kicks a soccer ball. It goes 10 feet and comes back to her. How is this possible?

• A.

The ball is slippery.

• B.

The ground must have been slippery.

• C.

Gravity

• D.

She can't kick.

C. Gravity
Explanation
The reason the soccer ball comes back to the little girl after she kicks it is due to the force of gravity. Gravity is the natural force that pulls objects towards the center of the Earth. When the girl kicks the ball, it initially moves forward due to the force of her kick. However, gravity acts on the ball, pulling it back towards the ground. This causes the ball to eventually come back to the girl's location.

That's not possible.

• B.

By sleeping during the night

• C.

Explanation
The correct answer is "By sleeping during the night" because if someone sleeps during the night, they are not technically sleeping for eight consecutive days. The question is asking for a way to not sleep for eight days, implying that the person should remain awake for the entire duration. By sleeping during the night, the person would still be awake during the day, therefore not sleeping for eight days straight.
