      Centipedes and Millipedes

    • D.

      Echinoderms

    • E.

      Arachnids

    Correct Answer
    D. Echinoderms
    Explanation
    Echinoderms are not a type of arthropod. Arthropods are characterized by having jointed legs and a segmented body, while echinoderms have a radial symmetry and a water vascular system. Insects, crustaceans, centipedes and millipedes, and arachnids are all examples of arthropods, as they possess the characteristic features of this group.

  • 2. 

    An insect is divided into how many parts?

    • A.

      One

    • B.

      Two

    • D.

      Four

    • E.

      A million

    Correct Answer
    C. Three
    Explanation
    An insect is divided into three parts: the head, thorax, and abdomen. These three parts make up the body of an insect and are distinct from each other in terms of their structure and function. The head contains the insect's sensory organs and mouthparts, the thorax is responsible for locomotion and houses the wings and legs, and the abdomen contains the digestive, reproductive, and respiratory systems.

    A scorpion is a member of the ____ order.

    • A.

      Arachnid

    • B.

      Insect

    • C.

      Millipede and Centipede

    • D.

      Crustacean

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Arachnid
    Explanation
    A scorpion is a member of the arachnid order because it possesses the characteristic features of arachnids, such as having eight legs and belonging to the class Arachnida. Arachnids also include spiders, ticks, and mites. Insects have six legs, while millipedes, centipedes, and crustaceans belong to different taxonomic groups. Therefore, the correct answer is Arachnid.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    An insect has ____ legs, and an arachnid has ____ legs.

    Insects have six legs, while arachnids have eight legs. This is a characteristic feature that distinguishes these two groups of animals.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    An arthropod reproduces ____.  (how)

    Correct Answer
    sexually
    Explanation
    Arthropods reproduce sexually, which means that they require the fusion of male and female gametes (sperm and egg) to produce offspring. This type of reproduction allows for genetic variation and the combination of traits from both parents. Arthropods have specialized reproductive organs that facilitate the transfer of sperm from males to females, such as the male's copulatory organs and the female's reproductive tract. This method of reproduction is common among many animal species, including insects, spiders, and crustaceans.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Most crustaceans have ____ for breathing.

    Correct Answer
    gills
    Explanation
    Crustaceans, such as crabs and lobsters, have gills for breathing. Gills are specialized organs that extract oxygen from water, allowing the crustaceans to respire. These gills are located on the sides of their bodies and are made up of thin, feathery structures that increase the surface area for efficient gas exchange. By pumping water over their gills, crustaceans are able to extract oxygen and release carbon dioxide, enabling them to survive and thrive in their aquatic environments.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What are the characteristics of an arthropod?

    • A.

      Exoskeleton

    • B.

      6 legs

    • C.

      Jointed legs

    • D.

      A and C

    • E.

      A, C, and a segmented body

    Correct Answer
    E. A, C, and a segmented body
    Explanation
    Arthropods are characterized by having an exoskeleton, which is a hard outer covering that provides support and protection. They also have jointed legs, allowing for movement and flexibility. Additionally, arthropods have a segmented body, meaning that their body is divided into distinct sections. Therefore, the correct answer is A, C, and a segmented body.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    A millipede is a(n) ____.

    • A.

      Carnivore

      Herbivore

    • D.

      Crustacean

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Herbivore
    Explanation
    A millipede is considered a herbivore because it primarily feeds on plant material. Millipedes have specialized mouthparts that allow them to consume decaying leaves, wood, and other organic matter. They play an important role in the ecosystem by breaking down dead plant material and recycling nutrients back into the soil. Although some millipede species may occasionally consume small insects or decaying animal matter, their diet consists mainly of plant material, making them classified as herbivores.

      Monkeys

    Correct Answer
    C. Crustaceans
    Explanation
    Crustaceans have a hard exoskeleton, two pairs of antennae, and a mouth for crunching and grinding. This distinguishes them from other options such as centipedes, millipedes, insects, arachnids, and monkeys, which do not possess all of these characteristics.

      Larva, egg, pupa, adult

    Correct Answer
    D. Egg, larva, pupa, adult
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "egg, larva, pupa, adult." This is the correct sequence for complete metamorphosis, which is the life cycle of insects such as butterflies and beetles. It starts with the egg, which hatches into a larva or caterpillar. The larva then goes through a period of growth and development, shedding its skin multiple times, until it forms a pupa or chrysalis. Inside the pupa, the insect undergoes a dramatic transformation, eventually emerging as an adult.
