    Which one is true about ants?

    • A.

      They don't have lungs

    • D.

      There's no queen ant

    Correct Answer
    A. They don't have lungs
    Explanation
    Ants do not have lungs. Instead, they have tiny tubes called tracheae that allow oxygen to enter their bodies. These tracheae deliver oxygen directly to their cells, enabling them to breathe without the need for lungs. This adaptation allows ants to survive in various environments, including underground tunnels and confined spaces, where a respiratory system with lungs would be impractical.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    How many stomachs do ants have?

    • A.

      1

    • B.

      4

    • C.

      3

    • D.

      2

    Correct Answer
    D. 2
    Explanation
    Ants have two stomachs. One stomach is used for storing food and the other is used for digestion. The food is initially stored in the first stomach, known as the crop, where it is softened and partially digested. The ant can then regurgitate this partially digested food and share it with other ants in the colony. The second stomach, known as the gizzard, is responsible for further digestion of the food before it enters the intestines. Having two stomachs allows ants to efficiently process and distribute food within the colony.

    Explanation
    Ants have a wide range of lifespans depending on their species. While some ants may only live for a few weeks, others can live up to 30 years. This variation in lifespan is due to factors such as the species' reproductive capabilities, environmental conditions, and the presence of predators. Therefore, it is possible for ants to live for up to 30 years.

    How many hours can ants survive for underwater?

    • A.

      About 24 hours

    • B.

      Around 10 hours

    • C.

      Somewhere around 5 hours

    • D.

      Maybe 15 minutes

    Correct Answer
    A. About 24 hours
    Explanation
    Ants can survive underwater for about 24 hours. This is because ants have the ability to close their spiracles, which are the openings in their exoskeleton that they use to breathe. By closing these openings, ants can prevent water from entering their respiratory system and suffocating them. Additionally, ants have a high tolerance for low oxygen levels, allowing them to survive for an extended period of time underwater. However, it is important to note that prolonged submersion can still be harmful to ants and may lead to their eventual death.
