Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Bowling shoes that have been in water may cause a bowler to

    • A.

      A. stick

    • B.

      B. mark up the approach

    • C.

      C. slide

    • D.

      D. slide and stick

    Correct Answer
    A. A. stick
    Explanation
    When bowling shoes come into contact with water, they can become wet and damp. This can cause the soles of the shoes to lose their grip and become sticky, making it difficult for the bowler to slide smoothly during their approach. As a result, the bowler may experience their feet sticking to the approach, affecting their balance and potentially leading to an inconsistent throw. Therefore, the correct answer is a. stick.

      B. ABBA

    • C.

      C. ABC

    • D.

      D. WIBC

    Correct Answer
    C. C. ABC
    Explanation
    The correct answer is c. ABC because the question is asking about the organization or entity that rigidly controls the specifications for the size and weight of pins. None of the other options (AJBC, ABBA, WIBC) are known to have any authority or control over pin specifications. Therefore, option c. ABC is the most logical choice.

    A bowling pin must be durable enough to withstand

    • A.

      A. 10,000 games

    • B.

      B. the 2,000 pound force of a bowling ball

    • D.

      D. a ball traveling at a speed of 60 miles per hour

    Correct Answer
    B. B. the 2,000 pound force of a bowling ball
    Explanation
    A bowling pin must be durable enough to withstand the 2,000 pound force of a bowling ball. This is because when a bowling ball is thrown, it exerts a significant amount of force on the pins upon impact. If the pins were not able to withstand this force, they would easily break or get knocked down, resulting in an ineffective game. Therefore, it is essential for bowling pins to be able to withstand the force exerted by a bowling ball to ensure durability and longevity.

    Correct Answer
    A. A. All of these
    Explanation

The size of the building can create distractions and noise, making it harder to focus. Additionally, the presence of a large number of people bowling can add to the noise and create a bustling environment. Finally, the type of equipment used in bowling centers, such as the sound of bowling balls hitting pins, can also be distracting. Overall, all of these factors contribute to the difficulty of concentrating in a bowling center.

    • B.

      A. true

    Correct Answer
    B. A. true
    Explanation
    Bowling pins are commonly made of maple or laminated wood. This is because these materials are durable and can withstand the impact of bowling balls. Additionally, maple and laminated wood provide a smooth surface for the ball to roll against, ensuring a consistent and fair game. Therefore, the statement "Bowling pins are made of maple or laminated wood" is true.

      A. true

    • B.

      B. false

    Correct Answer
    A. A. true
    Explanation
    When bowling, it is considered proper etiquette to step back to the floor behind the approach to allow the adjacent bowler to proceed.

By stepping back, it shows respect for the other bowler's concentration and allows them to have a clear path to the bowling lane. Therefore, the statement is true.

Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    If a bowler has a long string of strikes going, it is proper to stop and watch

    • A.

      A. true

    • B.

      B. false

    Correct Answer
    A. A. true
    Explanation
    If a bowler has a long string of strikes going, it is proper to stop and watch because it is considered an impressive feat in bowling. A strike occurs when the bowler knocks down all ten pins with a single ball, and having a long string of strikes indicates exceptional skill and accuracy. It is customary for spectators and fellow bowlers to pause and acknowledge the bowler's achievement, showing respect and admiration for their performance.

    Rate this question:

  • 16.

    Explanation
    A spare in bowling refers to knocking down all the remaining pins on the second ball of a frame, after not being able to knock them all down on the first ball. It is denoted by a slash ("/") on the scorecard. This means that the player gets a second chance to make up for the missed pins in the previous throw.

    mark
  • 18. 

    Distance between finger holes on the ball

    Correct Answer
    bridge on the ball
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "bridge on the ball". This suggests that the question is related to a specific object, possibly a game or sport involving a ball. The distance between finger holes on the ball does not make sense in this context, as balls typically do not have finger holes.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    Three strikes in a row during a game

    Correct Answer
    turkey
    Explanation
    In bowling, if a player gets three strikes in a row during a game, it is commonly referred to as a "turkey." This term originated in the early 1900s when bowling was a popular sport in the United States. The scoring system in bowling assigns a score of 10 for each strike, so getting three strikes in a row results in a score of 30 for that frame. The term "turkey" is believed to have been coined because it was a humorous way to describe achieving a high score.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    The line that separates the approach from the lane

    Correct Answer
    foul line
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "foul line." The explanation for this answer is that the foul line is the line that separates the approach from the lane in bowling. It is used to determine if a bowler has stepped over the line while delivering the ball. Stepping over the foul line is considered a foul and can result in a lower score or a nullified throw. Therefore, the foul line is an important boundary in the game of bowling.

  • 21. 

    A frame without a strike or spare

    Correct Answer
