What Is IT That Interests People In Zoology? - Quiz

I don't know about you but I'm curious about what interests people in Zoology. I think all they do is look at animals and know the classification, type, model, etcetera.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which one represents Zoo in the following?

    • A.

      None actually

    • B.

      Zōion

    • C.

      Logos

    • D.

      Animeal

    Correct Answer
    B. Zōion
    Explanation
    The word "Zōion" represents Zoo in the given options. The other options, "None actually," "Logos," and "Animeal," do not represent the concept of a zoo. "Zōion" is a Greek word that means animal, and it is commonly used to refer to a place where a collection of different animal species is kept for public display and education purposes, which aligns with the concept of a zoo.

    When did Darwin discover a way by which organic evolution could occur and also presented the evidence (in the 1880s)

    • A.

      1839

    • B.

      1859

    • C.

      1879

    • D.

      1899

    Correct Answer
    B. 1859
    Explanation
    In 1859, Darwin published his famous book "On the Origin of Species," which presented his theory of natural selection and provided evidence for organic evolution. This groundbreaking work revolutionized the understanding of biology and had a profound impact on the scientific community. Darwin's theory proposed that species evolve over time through a process of natural selection, where individuals with favorable traits are more likely to survive and reproduce. This discovery marked a significant milestone in the field of evolutionary biology and laid the foundation for modern evolutionary theory.

    Which of the following is true about classification?

    • A.

      Kingdom–Phylum–Class–Order–Family–Genus–Species

    • B.

      Kingdom–Phylum–Class–Order–Family–Genus

    • C.

      Kingdom–Phylum–Order–Family–Genus–Species–Class

    • D.

      Kingdom–Phylum–Class–Family–Genus–Species

    Correct Answer
    A. Kingdom–Phylum–Class–Order–Family–Genus–Species
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Kingdom–Phylum–Class–Order–Family–Genus–Species. This is the correct order of classification in biology, starting from the broadest category (kingdom) to the most specific (species). The order helps to categorize and organize living organisms based on their shared characteristics and evolutionary relationships.

    What's the meaning of Invertebrates?

    • A.

      Invertebrates are hunched

    • B.

      Invertebrates only have two legs

    • C.

      Invertebrates can't breathe

    • D.

      Invertebrates have no backbone

    Correct Answer
    D. Invertebrates have no backbone
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Invertebrates have no backbone." This is because invertebrates are a group of animals that do not possess a vertebral column or backbone. Instead, they have a soft body structure or an exoskeleton. This characteristic distinguishes them from vertebrates, which include animals like mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fish, that have a backbone.

    What's an example of a vertebrate?

    • A.

      Worm

    • B.

      Snail

    • C.

      Fish

    • D.

      Lobster

    Correct Answer
    C. Fish
    Explanation
    Fish is an example of a vertebrate because it belongs to the group of animals called vertebrates, which have a backbone or spinal column. Fish have a well-developed internal skeleton made of bone or cartilage, which supports their body and protects their internal organs. They also have a distinct head, a muscular tail, and fins for swimming. Fish are a diverse group, with thousands of different species found in various aquatic environments, ranging from freshwater to saltwater. They are characterized by their ability to breathe through gills and their adaptation for living in water.

    Example of a cold-blooded animal is

    • A.

      Snail

    • B.

      Homosapiens

    • C.

      Goats

    • D.

      Dogs

    Correct Answer
    A. Snail
    Explanation
    Snails are an example of a cold-blooded animal because they are ectothermic, meaning their body temperature is determined by the surrounding environment. They do not have the ability to regulate their internal body temperature like warm-blooded animals do. Instead, they rely on external sources of heat to warm up and become more active. This is why snails are often found in damp and cool environments, as they prefer lower temperatures.

    Which one eats meat only?

    • A.

      Monkey

    • B.

      Snail

    • C.

      Tiger

    • D.

      Man

    Correct Answer
    C. Tiger
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Tiger because tigers are carnivores and primarily eat meat as their main source of food. Unlike monkeys, snails, and humans, tigers have sharp teeth and strong jaws specifically adapted for hunting and consuming meat. They are apex predators and rely on hunting and killing other animals to survive.

    Which of these mammals lay eggs?.

    • A.

      Slug

    • B.

      Platypus

    • C.

      Monkey

    • D.

      Snail

    Correct Answer
    B. Platypus
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Platypus because it is one of the few mammals that lay eggs. The platypus is a unique creature found in Australia and it belongs to a group of mammals called monotremes. Monotremes are known for their ability to lay eggs instead of giving birth to live young. The platypus lays eggs in a nest and after hatching, the young platypuses are nourished with milk produced by their mother, just like other mammals. This adaptation sets the platypus apart from other mammals, making it a fascinating and unusual species.

    Do all species of Shark lay eggs?

    • A.

      All of them lay eggs

    • B.

      All of them give birth

    • C.

      Some actually do not lay eggs

    • D.

      Some actually do not give birth

    Correct Answer
    C. Some actually do not lay eggs
    Explanation
    Some species of sharks actually do not lay eggs. These species are known as viviparous sharks, meaning they give birth to live young. Instead of laying eggs, these sharks retain the fertilized eggs inside their bodies until the pups are fully developed and ready to be born. This is an adaptation that allows the pups to have a higher chance of survival compared to being vulnerable as eggs.

    Which of these is always looking grumpy and also doesn't have a gas bladder?

    • A.

      Jellyfish

    • B.

      Stingray

    • C.

      Shark

    • D.

      Blobfish

    Correct Answer
    D. Blobfish
    Explanation
    The blobfish is always looking grumpy because of its unique physical features, such as its droopy and saggy skin. Additionally, it doesn't have a gas bladder, which is a common feature in many fish species that helps them control their buoyancy in water. This lack of a gas bladder further contributes to its grumpy appearance as it cannot easily adjust its position in the water column.
