    Correct Answer
    C. Backward Pass
    In basketball, a backward pass is not a recognized pass. The three common passes used in basketball are the chest pass, overhead pass, and bounce pass. The chest pass involves using both hands to pass the ball directly from the chest, the overhead pass is a pass made with both hands above the head, and the bounce pass is when the ball is bounced off the floor to reach a teammate. However, there is no specific technique or rule for a backward pass in basketball.

    What type of pass would you use if your oponent is right in front of you with his arms up?

    Correct Answer
    Bounce pass
    A bounce pass would be the most suitable type of pass to use when your opponent is right in front of you with his arms up. This is because a bounce pass is thrown low to the ground, making it difficult for the opponent to intercept or block. By bouncing the ball, you can bypass the opponent's raised arms and deliver the pass accurately to your teammate.

    The __________ pass is when you bounce the ball to the ground with enough force to land in front of your team mate.

    Correct Answer
    In this question, the word "bounce" is already provided as a blank space, indicating that it is the missing word. The context of the sentence suggests that the missing word should describe a type of pass where the ball is bounced to the ground with enough force to reach a teammate. Therefore, the correct answer is "bounce."
