Do You Have The Knowledge Of Butterfly Life Cycle? - Quiz

To grow into an adult, Butterflies go through 4 stages: egg, larva, pupa and adult. Each stage has a different goal - for instance, caterpillars need to eat a lot, and adults need to reproduce. This quiz has been made to test the knowledge of students on the topic Lifecycle of the Butterfly. Let's try out this quiz. All the best!


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The butterfly starts out as a what?

    • A.

      A caterpillar

    • B.

      An egg

    • C.

      A worm

    • D.

      In a chrysalis

    Correct Answer
    B. An egg
    Explanation
    The butterfly starts out as an egg. This is the initial stage of the butterfly's life cycle. After the egg hatches, it transforms into a caterpillar, which later forms a chrysalis and eventually emerges as a butterfly.

    Another name for a caterpillar is

    • A.

      A worm

    • B.

      A larva

    • C.

      A pupa

    Correct Answer
    B. A larva
    Explanation
    A caterpillar is commonly referred to as a larva. This is because a caterpillar is the larval stage of an insect, particularly of butterflies and moths. During this stage, the caterpillar undergoes significant growth and development before eventually transforming into a pupa and later emerging as an adult butterfly or moth. Therefore, "a larva" is an accurate alternative term for a caterpillar.

    In the stage of the butterfly's life, it likes to eat milkweed leaves.

    • A.

      First

    • B.

      Second

    • C.

      Third

    • D.

      Last

    Correct Answer
    B. Second
    Explanation
    During the stage of the butterfly's life, it prefers to consume milkweed leaves. This implies that the butterfly's feeding habits change as it progresses through different stages of its life cycle. The correct answer, "second," suggests that eating milkweed leaves is a characteristic of the second stage of the butterfly's life.

    Pupas are often camouflaged to

    • A.

      Look pretty on a tree

    • B.

      Match the color of the larva

    • C.

      To hide from predators

    Correct Answer
    C. To hide from predators
    Explanation
    Pupas are often camouflaged to hide from predators. This is because pupas are in a vulnerable stage of their life cycle, and predators may try to attack and eat them. By blending in with their surroundings, pupas increase their chances of survival by making it difficult for predators to spot them. Camouflaging helps them to stay hidden and avoid being preyed upon, allowing them to safely undergo their metamorphosis and emerge as adults.

    There are how many stages in the lifecycle of a butterfly's life?

    • A.

      10

    • B.

      7

    • C.

      5

    • D.

      4

    Correct Answer
    D. 4
    Explanation
    The lifecycle of a butterfly consists of four stages: egg, larva (caterpillar), pupa (chrysalis), and adult. Each stage serves a different purpose in the growth and development of the butterfly. The egg stage is where the butterfly is laid and begins to develop. The larva stage is when the caterpillar hatches from the egg and consumes food to grow. The pupa stage is a transformative stage where the caterpillar develops into a butterfly inside a chrysalis. Finally, the adult stage is when the butterfly emerges from the chrysalis and is ready to reproduce. Therefore, the correct answer is 4.

    The lifecycle of a butterfly's life can also be called what?

    • A.

      A changing experience

    • B.

      A long process

    • C.

      A metamorphosis

    Correct Answer
    C. A metamorphosis
    Explanation
    The lifecycle of a butterfly involves a series of distinct stages, starting from an egg, then progressing to a caterpillar (larva) stage, followed by the formation of a pupa (chrysalis), and finally emerging as a fully developed butterfly. This transformation from one form to another is commonly referred to as metamorphosis. During this process, the butterfly undergoes significant physical changes, making "metamorphosis" an appropriate term to describe the butterfly's life cycle.

    What emerges from the chrysalis?

    • A.

      A worm

    • B.

      An egg

    • C.

      A butterfly

    • D.

      A larva

    Correct Answer
    C. A butterfly
    Explanation
    When a caterpillar enters the chrysalis stage, it undergoes a process called metamorphosis. During this process, the caterpillar's body undergoes significant changes and transforms into a butterfly. Therefore, what emerges from the chrysalis is a fully developed butterfly.

  • 8. 

    What does the caterpillar attach itself to?

    • A.

      A leaf

    • B.

      A rock

    • C.

      A branch

    Correct Answer
    C. A branch
    Explanation
    The caterpillar attaches itself to a branch. This is because branches provide stability and support, allowing the caterpillar to safely undergo its transformation into a butterfly or moth. Attaching to a branch also helps protect the caterpillar from predators and provides easy access to leaves for feeding.

    The egg hatches into a what?

    • A.

      A butterfly

    • B.

      A chrysalis

    • C.

      A larva

    • D.

      A worm

    Correct Answer
    C. A larva
    Explanation
    When an egg hatches, it typically gives rise to a larva. A larva is an immature form of an organism that undergoes metamorphosis to transform into its adult form. In the case of a butterfly, the egg hatches into a larva called a caterpillar. The caterpillar then goes through different stages of growth and development before eventually forming a chrysalis and transforming into a butterfly. Therefore, the correct answer for this question is "A larva."

    Where do adult butterflies get their food?

    • A.

      By Eating leaves

    • B.

      From flowers

    • C.

      From roots

    • D.

      By eating grass

    Correct Answer
    B. From flowers
    Explanation
    Adult butterflies get their food from flowers because they have a long, straw-like mouthpart called a proboscis that allows them to suck nectar from the flowers. Nectar is a sweet, sugary liquid that provides butterflies with the energy they need to fly and reproduce. Flowers produce nectar as a way to attract butterflies and other pollinators, and in return, the butterflies help to pollinate the flowers by transferring pollen from one flower to another. Therefore, flowers are a crucial source of food for adult butterflies.
