    • E.

      5

    Correct Answer
    D. 4
    Explanation
    Slugs do not have noses in the traditional sense. They have sensory organs called tentacles on their head, which help them detect smells and navigate their environment. These tentacles are located above their eyes and are used to sense chemicals in the air and on surfaces. While it may be misleading to say that slugs have "noses," the answer of 4 could refer to the two pairs of tentacles that slugs possess.

    What is the only type of bird that can see the color blue?

    Correct Answer
    Owl
    Explanation
    Owls are the only type of bird that can see the color blue. This is because owls have a high number of rod cells in their eyes, which are responsible for detecting light and motion. These rod cells are particularly sensitive to the color blue, allowing owls to perceive this color more clearly than other birds. This adaptation helps owls in their hunting behavior, as many of their prey, such as small mammals and birds, have blue feathers or fur.

    C. Dolphin
    Explanation
    Dolphins are known to sleep with one eye open. This is because they are conscious breathers, which means they need to actively think about breathing. By keeping one eye open, dolphins can remain vigilant and keep an eye out for potential threats or predators while still getting the rest they need. This unique adaptation allows them to rest and protect themselves at the same time.

    The given answer states that 20 banks are robbed daily. However, without any context or additional information, it is impossible to determine the accuracy of this answer. The number of banks being robbed daily can vary greatly depending on various factors such as location, security measures, and current crime rates.

    True or False: A lightning bolt generates a temperature 5x hotter than found at the sun's surface.

    Correct Answer
    True
    Explanation
    A lightning bolt generates a temperature 5x hotter than found at the sun's surface. This is because lightning can reach temperatures of around 30,000 Kelvin, while the surface of the sun has an average temperature of about 5,500 Kelvin. Lightning is formed by the discharge of electrical energy in the atmosphere, resulting in a rapid increase in temperature due to the high amount of energy involved.

    What does a forestfire move faster on? Uphill or Downhill?

    Correct Answer
    Uphill
    Explanation
    A forest fire moves faster uphill because the slope provides an additional force that aids in the spreading of the fire. As the fire moves uphill, it gains momentum and the heat rises, creating an upward draft that fuels the flames and allows them to spread more rapidly. The increased heat and airflow caused by the uphill terrain contribute to the fire's acceleration, making it move faster in that direction compared to moving downhill.
