Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Use the first letter for 1-6:Which of these statements belongs in the web?

    • A.

      Short tongue

    • B.

      Agressive

    • C.

      Dull claws

    • D.

      Termite

    Correct Answer
    D. Termite
    Explanation
    The termite belongs in the web because termites are social insects that live in large colonies and build intricate structures called termite mounds or nests. These mounds are made of soil, saliva, feces, and wood particles, and they serve as a home for the termite colony. Termites also construct complex networks of tunnels and galleries within wood, which they use to access food sources. Therefore, the termite's presence and activities are closely associated with the web-like structures they create.

    C. A is for anteaters
    Explanation
    "A is for anteaters" would be the best book to find more information about aardvarks because it specifically mentions anteaters, which are closely related to aardvarks.
