Wombats are well-adapted to living in burrows, as their bodies are built for digging and their thick fur helps to insulate them in their underground homes.

      18

    • D.

      32

    Correct Answer
    B. 24
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 24 because the average adult human has 32 teeth, but some people have their wisdom teeth removed, which leaves them with 28 teeth. However, children typically have 20 primary teeth, which are eventually replaced by 32 permanent teeth. Therefore, 24 is a plausible number of teeth for a person to have.

    Rodents have the same dentition as wombats. This means that they have similar teeth structures and arrangements. Both rodents and wombats have sharp incisors at the front of their mouths, which they use for gnawing and cutting food. They also have molars at the back of their mouths for grinding and chewing. This similarity in dentition suggests that wombats and rodents may have similar feeding habits and dietary preferences.

      Carnivore

      Herbivore

    • D.

      None

    Correct Answer
    C. Herbivore
    Explanation
    The feeding adaptation of the organism in question is herbivore. This means that it primarily consumes plant material as its main source of food. Herbivores have specialized digestive systems that allow them to break down and extract nutrients from plant matter efficiently. They often have specialized teeth and jaws for grinding and chewing plant material, as well as longer digestive tracts to aid in the breakdown and absorption of nutrients from plants. This adaptation allows the organism to obtain the necessary energy and nutrients from a diet consisting mainly of plants.
