    Correct Answer
    D. To make food delicious
    Explanation
    Air is used for various purposes, such as drying clothes, creating fire, and running engines. However, air does not directly contribute to making food delicious. While air circulation can aid in cooking and baking processes, it is not the primary factor that enhances the taste of food. The flavor of food primarily comes from ingredients, seasonings, and cooking techniques. Therefore, air is not used specifically to make food delicious.

This type of soil is often found in areas with high rainfall or where there is poor drainage. Clay soil is beneficial for plants that require a lot of water, but it can also become compacted and difficult to work with.

    Explanation
    Food is essential for our growth, strength, and overall health. It provides us with necessary nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that our body needs to function properly. However, the statement "it makes us sick" is not true. While certain unhealthy food choices or improper handling of food can lead to illness, the main purpose of food is to nourish and support our well-being, not to make us sick.

  • 11. 

    The type of rock used in making cement is _____

    • A.

      Limestone

    • B.

      Sandstone

    • C.

      Marble

    • D.

      Granite

    Correct Answer
    A. Limestone
    Explanation
    Limestone is the correct answer because it is the primary rock used in the production of cement. Limestone is rich in calcium carbonate, which is a key ingredient in cement manufacturing. When limestone is heated at high temperatures, it undergoes a chemical reaction that produces a powdered form called clinker. This clinker is then mixed with gypsum and other additives to produce cement. Limestone's abundance, availability, and chemical composition make it an ideal choice for cement production.

    Rate this question:

      It is hard

    • B.

      It has different sizes

    • C.

      It has shape

    • D.

      It can float on water

    Correct Answer
    D. It can float on water
    Explanation
    The given properties of rock include being hard, having different sizes, and having shape. These are common characteristics of rocks. However, the property of being able to float on water is not a typical characteristic of rocks. Rocks are denser than water, so they generally sink when placed in water. Therefore, the property of floating on water does not apply to rocks, making it the correct answer.

However, rocks are not used for making money as they do not possess any inherent value or monetary properties.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    ______soil is best used for farming.

    • A.

      Clay

    • B.

      Loamy

    • C.

      Silt

    • D.

      Sandy

    Correct Answer
    B. Loamy
    Explanation
    Loamy soil is best used for farming because it has a balanced composition of sand, silt, and clay. This type of soil retains moisture well while also allowing for proper drainage. It has good fertility and nutrient-holding capacity, making it ideal for plant growth. Loamy soil is easy to work with and has a crumbly texture, providing a suitable environment for plant roots to penetrate and access nutrients.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    ______soil has low nutrient.

    • A.

      Sandy

    • B.

      Clay

    • C.

      Loamy

    • D.

      Silt

    Correct Answer
    A. Sandy
    Explanation
    Sandy soil has low nutrient levels because it is composed of larger particles that do not hold onto nutrients well. These larger particles create larger spaces between them, allowing water and nutrients to easily drain away. As a result, sandy soil often lacks the necessary nutrients for plants to thrive.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    The followings are true about water except one.

      It helps plant to grow

    • B.

      We drink it when we are tasty

    • C.

      It does not save life

    • D.

      It is used for industrial work

    Correct Answer
    C. It does not save life
    Explanation
    Water is essential for plant growth, human survival (as we drink it when we are thirsty), and it is also used for industrial purposes. However, it is incorrect to say that water does not save lives. Water plays a crucial role in maintaining hygiene and sanitation, preventing the spread of diseases, and providing emergency relief during natural disasters or emergencies. It is also used in firefighting to extinguish fires and save lives. Therefore, the statement "it does not save life" is not true.

    Rate this question:

  • 18.

      Matchet

    • C.

      Cutlass

    • D.

      Sickle

    Correct Answer
    D. Sickle
    Explanation
    A sickle is a hand-held agricultural tool with a curved blade used for harvesting crops, particularly grain. It is commonly used in many parts of the world for cutting grass, wheat, and other crops close to the ground. The curved shape of the blade allows for efficient cutting and gathering of the crops. Therefore, based on the given options, it can be concluded that this tool is a sickle.

    Rate this question:

    The sun rises from the ______and set to the _______

    • A.

      East, west

    • B.

      West, east

    • C.

      East, north

    • D.

      West,south

    Correct Answer
    A. East, west
    Explanation
    The sun rises from the east and sets to the west. This is a well-known fact based on the Earth's rotation. As the Earth rotates on its axis from west to east, it appears as if the sun is moving across the sky from east to west. The sun rises in the east in the morning and sets in the west in the evening, making east and west the correct options.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    All these are uses of sun except ____

    • A.

      It makes plant grow

    • B.

      It is used in drying our clothes

    • C.

      It makes us sick

    • D.

      It gives us light in the day.

    Correct Answer
    C. It makes us sick
    Explanation
    The sun does not make us sick. In fact, sunlight exposure can have several health benefits, such as providing vitamin D, improving mood, and boosting the immune system. However, excessive exposure to sunlight without protection can lead to sunburns, skin damage, and an increased risk of skin cancer. So while the sun can have negative effects if not used responsibly, it does not directly make us sick.
