Basal body temperature is the lowest temperature of the human body which can be measured after sleep but before any activity. During Pregnancy, once ovulation has occurred, the female body begins to produce increasing amounts of progesterone, due to an increase of Basal Body temperature. This quiz has been created to test your knowledge and make you aware of temperature detection and techniques. So, let's try out the quiz. All the best!

### The temperature of hot desert ranges in day time up to

• A.

20°C

• B.

50°C

• C.

30°C

• D.

10°C

B. 50°C
Explanation
The correct answer is 50°C. Hot deserts can experience extremely high temperatures during the day, and 50°C is within the range of temperatures that can be reached in these environments.

### The Temperature of any area depends on its

• A.

Climate

• B.

Latitude

• C.

Longitude

• D.

Weather

B. Latitude
Explanation
The temperature of any area depends on its latitude because latitude refers to the distance of a location from the equator. As latitude increases or decreases, the angle at which sunlight hits the Earth's surface changes, affecting the amount of solar energy received. Areas closer to the equator receive more direct sunlight and therefore tend to have higher temperatures, while areas farther away experience less direct sunlight and tend to have lower temperatures.

### The temperature of the lower stratosphere is equal to

• A.

-12

• B.

-60

• C.

24

• D.

-93

B. -60
Explanation
The temperature of the lower stratosphere is equal to -60. This means that at this altitude, the temperature is -60 degrees Celsius or -76 degrees Fahrenheit. The stratosphere is the layer of the Earth's atmosphere above the troposphere, and the lower stratosphere is closer to the Earth's surface. The temperature in this region is colder than at the Earth's surface due to various factors, including the decrease in heat transfer from the ground and the presence of ozone that absorbs and re-emits solar radiation.

### Prediction of weather over next 3 to 5 working days is called

• A.

Weather forecast

• B.

Climate forecast

• C.

Weather update

• D.

Warning of weather

A. Weather forecast
Explanation
The term "weather forecast" refers to the prediction of weather conditions over a specific period, typically the next few days. It involves analyzing various meteorological factors such as temperature, humidity, wind speed, and precipitation patterns to provide an estimate of what the weather will be like in the near future. This prediction is usually made for a specific region or location and helps individuals and organizations plan their activities accordingly.

### The gradual increase in temperature of the world is regarded as

• A.

Green house effect

• B.

Ice age

• C.

Interglacial periods

• D.

Global warming

D. Global warming
Explanation
Global warming refers to the long-term increase in Earth's average surface temperature due to human activities, such as the burning of fossil fuels and deforestation. This rise in temperature leads to various negative effects, such as melting ice caps, rising sea levels, and extreme weather events. The given answer, "global warming," accurately describes the gradual increase in temperature that is currently occurring worldwide.

### Is Basal Body Temperature lower or higher after ovulation?

• A.

Lower

• B.

Higher

B. Higher
Explanation
Basal Body Temperature is higher after ovulation than it was in the follicular (preovulatory) phase of the menstrual cycle. This is due to the production of pogesterone from the Corpus Luteum that occurs after ovulation. With the onset of the next menstrual cycle, when a woman is again in the preovulatory phase, BBT falls. If, on the other hand, pregnancy occurs, the BBT will remain elevated throughout pregnancy.

Rate this question:

### When should Basal Body Temperature be taken?

• A.

After strenuous exercise

• B.

Before getting out of bed in the morning

• C.

After breakfast

• D.

Just before going to bed

B. Before getting out of bed in the morning
Explanation
Basal Body Temperature (BBT), also referred to as your waking temperature, should be taken first thing in the morning, before getting out of bed and before any activity (including eating or drinking).

### You lose most of your body heat through your head.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
Your mom was looking out for you when she made you put on a hat to go out in the cold, but a warm coat and gloves were just as important. You’ll lose heat from any part of your body that’s not covered -- but no more than 10% of it escapes through your uncovered head. Keep warm by dressing right for cold weather from head to toe.

### Body temperature can help police officers know when someone died.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
It’s not just the stuff of crime dramas. When someone dies, his body gives off heat until it’s the same temperature as the air around him. You can get a rough idea of how long someone has been dead if you put the palm of your hand under the person’s arms. If the body is warm, he died a few hours earlier. If it’s cold and clammy, it’s been at least 18 to 24 hours.

Rate this question:

• 10.

• A.

Caffeine

• B.

Stress

• C.

Both

• D.

Neither

C. Both
Explanation
Lots of things can affect how hot or cold you feel, including the weather. But caffeine and stress -- along with dehydration, exercise, and certain problems with your thyroid gland -- can all affect your body’s thermostat, too.
