Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Some animals go through a series of distinct growth stages called ______________________.

    • A.

      Animal stages

    • B.

      Chemical changes

    • C.

      Metamorhphosis

    • D.

      Germination

    Correct Answer
    C. Metamorhphosis
    Explanation
    Metamorphosis is the process in which some animals go through distinct growth stages. During metamorphosis, these animals undergo significant physical changes, such as the transformation from a larva to an adult. This process is common in insects, amphibians, and some other invertebrates. It involves various developmental stages, including egg, larva, pupa, and adult. Through metamorphosis, animals undergo a complete transformation in their body structure and physiology, enabling them to adapt to different environments and lifestyles as they progress through each stage.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    A butterfly hatches from an egg as a larva. The larva feeds and grows until it forms a(n)_______________.

    • A.

      Larva

    • B.

      Pupa

    • C.

      Caterpillar

    • D.

      Egg

    Correct Answer
    B. Pupa
    Explanation
    A butterfly hatches from an egg as a larva. The larva feeds and grows until it forms a pupa.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Inside the pupa, a larva's body changes completely into ____________a(n) butterfly

    • A.

      Pretty

    • B.

      Smaller

    • C.

      Adult

    • D.

      Baby

    Correct Answer
    C. Adult
    Explanation
    During the pupal stage of a butterfly's life cycle, the larva undergoes a process called metamorphosis. This transformation involves the complete restructuring of the larva's body, including the development of wings, legs, and other adult structures. Therefore, the correct answer is "adult" because it accurately describes the stage that the larva transitions into inside the pupa.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Grasshoppers emerge from their eggs as_______________________ , which are similar to the adult but lack wings and reproductive organs.

    • A.

      Metamorphosis

    • B.

      Larva

    • C.

      Pupa

    • D.

      Nymps

    Correct Answer
    D. Nymps
    Explanation
    When grasshoppers emerge from their eggs, they are in the nymph stage. Nymphs are similar to adult grasshoppers in appearance, but they do not have wings or reproductive organs. As they grow and develop, nymphs will go through a series of molts, shedding their exoskeleton and gradually developing wings and reproductive organs. This process is called incomplete metamorphosis, which is different from complete metamorphosis seen in insects like butterflies. Therefore, the correct answer is "nymphs".

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Fish and amphibians must release large amounts of sex cells because the chances____________ of in open water are low.

    • A.

      Metamorphosis

    • B.

      Fertilization

    • C.

      Living

    • D.

      Swimming

    Correct Answer
    B. Fertilization
    Explanation
    Fish and amphibians must release large amounts of sex cells because the chances of fertilization in open water are low. This is because in open water, the sex cells are more likely to disperse and not come into contact with each other, reducing the chances of successful fertilization. By releasing large amounts of sex cells, fish and amphibians increase the likelihood that at least some of the cells will come into contact and fertilization will occur.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The joining of sperm and egg cells inside the female's body is called ____________.

    • A.

      Larva

    • B.

      External fertlization

    • C.

      Metamorphosis

    • D.

      Internal fertilization

    Correct Answer
    D. Internal fertilization
    Explanation
    Internal fertilization is the correct answer because it refers to the process of the sperm and egg cells joining inside the female's body. This is in contrast to external fertilization, which occurs outside the female's body. Larva and metamorphosis are not related to the joining of sperm and egg cells.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Internal fertilization increases the chances that eggs will be fertilized and offspring will survive.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Internal fertilization increases the chances of fertilization and survival of offspring because it involves the direct transfer of sperm into the female's reproductive tract, where it can meet the eggs. This reduces the risk of sperm being lost or diluted in external environments. Additionally, internal fertilization allows for the development and protection of the fertilized eggs within the female's body, providing a more stable and controlled environment for the growth and development of the offspring.

    Animals that lay their eggs in open water include fish and  birds.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because while fish do lay their eggs in open water, birds do not. Birds lay their eggs in nests or on land, not in open water.

    Explanation
    The yolk of an egg provides food for a developing embryo.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Reptiles and birds have eggs filled with a liquid and surrounded by a tough____________________ , so their eggs can be laid on land.

    • A.

      Gel like liquid

    • B.

      Shell

    • C.

      Larva

    • D.

      Skin

    Correct Answer
    B. Shell
    Explanation
    Reptiles and birds have eggs filled with a liquid and surrounded by a tough shell, so their eggs can be laid on land. The shell provides protection and support for the developing embryo inside the egg. It helps to prevent desiccation and acts as a barrier against physical damage. The shell also allows for gas exchange, ensuring that the developing embryo receives oxygen and releases carbon dioxide. Overall, the shell is an essential adaptation that allows reptiles and birds to reproduce successfully on land.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    The embryos of most ___________________develop inside the mother.

    • A.

      Snakes

    • B.

      Mammals

    • C.

      Amphibians

    • D.

      Reptiles

    Correct Answer
    B. Mammals
    Explanation
    Mammals are the correct answer because they are the only group of animals mentioned that have embryos that develop inside the mother. Snakes, amphibians, and reptiles all have different methods of reproduction, such as laying eggs or giving birth to live young outside of the mother's body.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Fish and amphibians release their sex cells into the surrounding water, where external  fertilization takes place..

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Fish and amphibians release their sex cells, or gametes, into the surrounding water. This is known as external fertilization because the fertilization process occurs outside of the body. In external fertilization, the male and female gametes combine in the water, allowing for the fertilization and development of offspring. This method is common in aquatic species like fish and amphibians because it increases the chances of successful fertilization by dispersing the gametes in a large volume of water. Therefore, the statement "True" is correct as it accurately describes the reproductive process of fish and amphibians.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Sperm and egg cells must stay protected and __________________for fertilization to occur.

    • A.

      Wet

    • B.

      Dry

    • C.

      Covered

    • D.

      In a shell

    Correct Answer
    A. Wet
    Explanation
    Sperm and egg cells must stay protected and wet for fertilization to occur. This is because the sperm cell needs a liquid medium to swim towards the egg cell, and the egg cell needs to be moist for the sperm to penetrate its outer layer. If the cells were dry, the sperm would not be able to move effectively and reach the egg, making fertilization impossible. Therefore, the presence of moisture is crucial for the successful fertilization of sperm and egg cells.

  • 14. 

    The immature stage that emerges from the egg during incomplete metamorphosis

    • A.

      Larva

    • B.

      Nymph

    • C.

      Pupa

    • D.

      Adult

    Correct Answer
    B. Nymph
    Explanation
    In incomplete metamorphosis, the immature stage that emerges from the egg is called a nymph. Unlike complete metamorphosis, where there is a distinct larval and pupal stage, incomplete metamorphosis does not have a pupal stage. The nymph gradually develops into an adult without undergoing a dramatic transformation. Therefore, the correct answer is nymph.

  • 15. 

    A life cycle with three growth stages is called a complete metamorphosis

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A life cycle with three growth stages is not called a complete metamorphosis. A complete metamorphosis refers to a life cycle with four distinct stages: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. In this type of metamorphosis, the larva looks completely different from the adult and undergoes a transformation during the pupal stage.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    A life cycle with four very distinct growth stages is called _______________________metamorphosis.

    • A.

      Larva

    • B.

      Complete

    • C.

      Incomplete

    • D.

      Butterfly

    Correct Answer
    B. Complete
    Explanation
    A life cycle with four very distinct growth stages is called complete metamorphosis. This term refers to the transformation of an organism through four distinct stages: egg, larva, pupa, and adult. In complete metamorphosis, the larva undergoes a significant physical change during the pupal stage before emerging as an adult. This process is commonly seen in insects such as butterflies and beetles.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    After egg cells are fertilized, they develop into ________________.

    • A.

      Egg cells

    • B.

      Larva

    • C.

      Eggs

    • D.

      Embryos

    Correct Answer
    D. Embryos
    Explanation
    After egg cells are fertilized, they undergo a process called embryogenesis, where they develop into embryos. This is the stage where the fertilized egg starts dividing and differentiating into different cell types, eventually forming a multicellular organism. The term "embryos" refers to the early developmental stage of an organism after fertilization and before it becomes a fully formed individual.

    Fish and frog embryos develop inside soft eggs. The eggs are somewhat protected by a(n)______________ around them.

    • A.

      Jelly-like layer

    • B.

      Shell

    • C.

      Larva

    • D.

      Cover

    Correct Answer
    A. Jelly-like layer
    Explanation
    Fish and frog embryos develop inside soft eggs, which are somewhat protected by a jelly-like layer around them. This jelly-like layer acts as a cushion, providing support and protection to the developing embryos. It helps to prevent damage from external factors and provides a suitable environment for the embryos to grow and develop.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    Sexual reproduction of animals begins when egg and ____________cells unite.

    • A.

      Mother

    • B.

      Animal

    • C.

      Sperm

    • D.

      Larva

    Correct Answer
    C. Sperm
    Explanation
    Sexual reproduction in animals begins when the egg and sperm cells unite. This process is known as fertilization. The sperm cell, which is produced by the male, carries genetic material and is capable of fertilizing the egg cell, which is produced by the female. The union of these two cells forms a zygote, which then develops into a new individual with a unique combination of genetic traits from both parents.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    Which stage is a caterpillar?

    • A.

      Larva

    • B.

      Nymph

    • C.

      Young grasshopper

    • D.

      Pupa

    Correct Answer
    A. Larva
    Explanation
    A caterpillar is in the larva stage. During this stage, a caterpillar hatches from an egg and begins its growth and development. It feeds voraciously, shedding its skin multiple times as it grows. The larva stage is characterized by the caterpillar's distinct appearance, with a long, segmented body and multiple pairs of legs. Eventually, the caterpillar will enter the pupa stage, where it undergoes metamorphosis and transforms into a butterfly or moth.
