Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Humans are

    • A.

      Mammals

    • B.

      Amphibians

    • C.

      Birds

    • D.

      All of these

    Correct Answer
    A. Mammals
    Explanation
    The correct answer is mammals because humans belong to the class Mammalia. Mammals are characterized by having mammary glands that produce milk for their young, having hair or fur, and being warm-blooded. Humans possess all of these characteristics, making them mammals.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Which of these is not a reptile?

    • A.

      Crocodile

    • B.

      Lizard

    • C.

      Snake

    • D.

      Lion

    Correct Answer
    D. Lion
    Explanation
    The lion is not a reptile because it is a mammal. Reptiles are cold-blooded animals that lay eggs and have scales or scaly skin. Lions, on the other hand, are warm-blooded mammals that give live birth and have fur or hair.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Birds have

    • A.

      4 legs

    • B.

      Gills

    • C.

      Feathers

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    C. Feathers
    Explanation
    Birds have feathers. Feathers are a unique characteristic of birds that serve various purposes such as insulation, flight, and display. Feathers are made of keratin, the same protein found in human hair and nails. They provide birds with the ability to fly, as well as protect their bodies from the elements. Feathers also play a role in courtship displays and communication among birds. Therefore, the correct answer is feathers.

  • 4. 

    Mammals have ______ on their skin.

    • A.

      Scales

    • B.

      Hair

    • C.

      Spikes

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    B. Hair
    Explanation
    Mammals have hair on their skin. Hair is a characteristic feature of mammals and is composed of a protein called keratin. It serves multiple functions such as insulation, protection, sensory perception, and camouflage. Hair varies in length, texture, and color among different mammal species. It helps to regulate body temperature by trapping air close to the skin and provides a barrier against external elements. Some mammals also have specialized types of hair, such as whiskers, which aid in detecting movements and navigating their surroundings.

  • 5. 

    All the arthropods have 6 legs.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Arthropods are a large group of invertebrate animals that include insects, spiders, crustaceans, and others. While many arthropods do have 6 legs, there are also arthropods that have more or fewer legs. For example, insects have 6 legs, but spiders have 8 legs and crustaceans like crabs have 10 legs. Therefore, it is incorrect to say that all arthropods have 6 legs.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Elephant is

    • A.

      A mammal

    • B.

      A reptile

    • C.

      An amphibian

    • D.

      An arthropod

    Correct Answer
    A. A mammal
    Explanation
    Elephants are mammals because they possess the defining characteristics of mammals. They have mammary glands that produce milk to nourish their young, they have hair or fur on their bodies, and they give live birth. Additionally, elephants are warm-blooded, meaning they can regulate their body temperature internally. These features align with the characteristics of mammals, making the correct answer "A mammal."

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The difference between a fish and a mammal is

    • A.

      Mammals have gills, and fishes have lungs.

    • B.

      Mammals can fly, and fishes cannot.

    • C.

      Fishes have gills, and mammals have lungs.

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    C. Fishes have gills, and mammals have lungs.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Fishes have gills, and mammals have lungs." This answer accurately describes the key difference between fish and mammals. Fish have gills, which allow them to extract oxygen from water, while mammals have lungs, which enable them to breathe air. This fundamental difference in respiratory organs is one of the defining characteristics that distinguishes these two groups of animals.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The centipede is an arthropod.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The centipede is indeed an arthropod. Arthropods are a large group of invertebrate animals that have jointed legs and a hard exoskeleton. Centipedes belong to the class Chilopoda within the phylum Arthropoda. They are characterized by their long, segmented bodies, numerous legs, and venomous claws. Therefore, it is correct to say that the centipede is an arthropod.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Which of these is true about mammals?

    • A.

      Mammals are cold-blooded.

    • B.

      Mammals are warm-blooded.

    • C.

      Mammals are able to fly.

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    B. Mammals are warm-blooded.
    Explanation
    Mammals are warm-blooded because they have the ability to regulate their body temperature internally. Unlike cold-blooded animals, such as reptiles, mammals can maintain a constant body temperature regardless of the external environment. This is achieved through various physiological mechanisms, such as shivering to generate heat or sweating to cool down. Being warm-blooded allows mammals to thrive in a wide range of habitats and climates, as they can adapt their body temperature to suit their needs.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Reptiles are usually known for

    • A.

      Laying eggs

    • B.

      Flying

    • C.

      Breathing underwater

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. Laying eggs
    Explanation
    Reptiles are usually known for laying eggs. This is a characteristic feature of reptiles, as they reproduce by laying eggs rather than giving live birth like mammals. This adaptation allows reptiles to reproduce successfully in various environments, as they can lay their eggs in a wide range of habitats. Additionally, laying eggs also allows reptiles to produce a large number of offspring at once, increasing their chances of survival in the wild. Therefore, the fact that reptiles are known for laying eggs is a well-established and widely recognized aspect of their biology.
