      Pupa, egg, butterfly, caterpillar

    • C.

      Egg, caterpillar, butterfly, pupa

    • D.

      Egg, caterpillar, pupa, butterfly

    Correct Answer
    D. Egg, caterpillar, pupa, butterfly
    Explanation
    The life cycle of a butterfly begins with an egg being laid by an adult butterfly. From the egg hatches a caterpillar, which is the larval stage of the butterfly. The caterpillar then goes through a process called metamorphosis and forms a pupa or chrysalis. Inside the pupa, the caterpillar undergoes a complete transformation and eventually emerges as a fully developed butterfly. Therefore, the correct order of the life cycle of a butterfly is egg, caterpillar, pupa, butterfly.

    Correct Answer
    B. Butterflies spin cocoons

    The sentence "Butterflies spin cocoons" is false because butterflies do not spin cocoons. Instead, they undergo a process called metamorphosis, where they form a chrysalis or pupa to transform from a caterpillar into a butterfly.

    Correct Answer
    C. Warn predators that they are poisonous
    Explanation
    Bright colors on a butterfly can warn predators that they are poisonous. This is a common defense mechanism in nature, known as aposematism. The vibrant colors act as a visual signal to potential predators, indicating that the butterfly is toxic or harmful to consume. By displaying these warning colors, the butterfly can deter predators from attacking, increasing its chances of survival.
