Animal Adaptation True Or False - Quiz


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    A lizards tail appearing to be a snake head like a predator is an example of Camouflage

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because the phenomenon described is not an example of camouflage. Camouflage refers to an organism's ability to blend in with its surroundings to avoid detection. In this case, the lizard's tail appearing like a snake head is a form of mimicry, where the lizard imitates the appearance of a more dangerous animal to deter potential predators.

    A butterfly blending into its surroundings is an example of mimicry

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A butterfly blending into its surroundings is an example of camouflage, not mimicry. Mimicry refers to when one species evolves to resemble another species, often for protection or to gain an advantage. In the case of a butterfly blending into its surroundings, it is using camouflage to hide from predators by matching its appearance to its environment.

  • 3. 

    Mimicry is to look like a predator and Camouflage is to blend into the surroundings

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Mimicry refers to the adaptation of an organism to resemble a different species, often a predator, in order to gain protection from potential threats. On the other hand, camouflage involves the ability of an organism to blend in with its surroundings, making it harder for predators or prey to detect it. Both mimicry and camouflage are strategies used by organisms to increase their chances of survival, but they serve different purposes. Mimicry is about looking like a predator, while camouflage is about blending into the surroundings. Therefore, the statement is true.

    A frog's legs helping it jump to get food is an example of physical adaptation

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is true because physical adaptation refers to the physical characteristics or features that an organism develops over time to better survive in its environment. In the case of a frog, its long and strong hind legs are a physical adaptation that allows it to jump quickly and efficiently to catch its prey. This adaptation increases the frog's chances of obtaining food and therefore improves its chances of survival.

    An instinct is something that is learned

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    An instinct is not something that is learned. It is an innate behavior or response that is present in an organism from birth. Instincts are often automatic and do not require conscious thought or learning. They are typically genetically programmed and are common in animals for survival and reproduction purposes.

    Bee's knowing to make honey or a salmon swimming upstream are instincts

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that the ability of bees to make honey and the behavior of salmon swimming upstream are examples of instincts. Instincts are innate behaviors that are genetically programmed and do not require learning or experience. Bees have a natural instinct to collect nectar and convert it into honey, while salmon instinctively swim upstream to spawn. Therefore, the statement is true as it correctly identifies these behaviors as instincts.

  • 7. 

    A dog learning tricks or a wolf learning to hunt is mimicry

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Mimicry refers to the act of imitating or copying the behavior, appearance, or characteristics of another species. In the given statement, a dog learning tricks or a wolf learning to hunt does not involve mimicry because they are both natural behaviors for their respective species. Dogs have been domesticated for thousands of years and have been trained to perform tricks by humans, while hunting is an instinctive behavior for wolves. Therefore, the correct answer is False.
