Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Building a mass transit system is likely to have which of the following effects?

    • A.

      Increasing air pollution

    • B.

      Traffic congestion

    • C.

      Increasing urban temperatures

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. None of the above
    Explanation
    Building a mass transit system is likely to have none of the above effects. This is because mass transit systems are designed to reduce the reliance on individual cars, which in turn reduces air pollution and traffic congestion. Additionally, mass transit systems often utilize electric or hybrid vehicles, further reducing emissions. Moreover, by reducing the number of cars on the road, mass transit systems can help decrease urban temperatures by reducing heat generated by vehicles. Therefore, none of the given effects are likely to occur with the implementation of a mass transit system.

    National parks and wilderness areas are designed to do which of the following?

    • A.

      To protect the near-extinction animal species

    • B.

      To protect the animal kingdom from being hunted down by humans

      Tourism 

    • D.

      All of above

      All of above but tourism

    Correct Answer
    D. All of above
    Explanation
    National parks and wilderness areas are designed to serve multiple purposes. They aim to protect near-extinction animal species by providing them with a safe habitat and preventing their further decline. These areas also serve as sanctuaries for the animal kingdom, protecting them from being hunted down by humans. Additionally, national parks and wilderness areas promote tourism, allowing people to appreciate and enjoy the beauty of nature while raising awareness about conservation. Therefore, the correct answer is "All of above."

    Which of the following is not an example of infrastructure?

    • A.

      A railroad

    • B.

      A school

    • C.

      A telephone line

    • D.

      A dairy farm

    Correct Answer
    D. A dairy farm
    Explanation
    A dairy farm is not an example of infrastructure because infrastructure refers to the basic physical and organizational structures and facilities needed for the operation of a society or enterprise. While a railroad, school, and telephone line are all examples of infrastructure as they provide transportation, education, and communication services respectively, a dairy farm is a specific agricultural enterprise rather than a foundational structure or facility for society.

    Which of the following is an example of reforestation?

    • A.

      Replanting forest land that has been clear-cut

    • B.

      Planting a cherry tree in your backyard

    • C.

      Planting oak trees in a city

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Replanting forest land that has been clear-cut
    Explanation
    Reforestation refers to the process of replanting trees in an area that has previously been deforested or clear-cut. This helps to restore the forest ecosystem and increase the forest cover. Therefore, replanting forest land that has been clear-cut is an example of reforestation. Planting a cherry tree in your backyard or planting oak trees in a city are not examples of reforestation as they do not involve the restoration of a previously cleared forest area.

  • 5. 

    Which of the following is not an ecosystem service provided by rural lands?

    • A.

      Oxygen in the air

    • B.

      Food

    • C.

      Aesthetic beauty

    • D.

      Wood for making paper

    Correct Answer
    C. Aesthetic beauty
    Explanation
    Aesthetic beauty is not considered an ecosystem service provided by rural lands. Ecosystem services refer to the benefits that humans receive from ecosystems, such as the provisioning of food and wood, the regulation of air and water quality, and the cultural and aesthetic values. While rural lands can certainly be aesthetically beautiful, this is not typically classified as an ecosystem service, as it does not directly contribute to the well-being or functioning of ecosystems or provide tangible benefits to humans.

  • 6. 

    Are national parks located only in the United States?

    • A.

      Yes

    • B.

      No

    Correct Answer
    B. No
    Explanation
    National parks are not located only in the United States. Many countries around the world have their own national parks, which are protected areas of natural beauty and significance. These parks are established to preserve and protect the unique ecosystems, wildlife, and cultural heritage of a particular region. Examples of famous national parks outside the United States include Banff National Park in Canada, Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, and Kruger National Park in South Africa. Therefore, the correct answer is "No."

      Gorillas 

    • B.

      Starlings 

    • C.

      Great Whales 

    • D.

      Leopards

    Correct Answer
    A. Gorillas 
    Explanation
    Gorillas are the most endangered organism out of the options given. This is because gorillas are facing significant threats such as habitat loss, poaching, and disease. Their population has been declining rapidly, with some subspecies being critically endangered. Conservation efforts are being made to protect and preserve gorilla populations, but their status as the most endangered organism highlights the urgent need for action to prevent their extinction.

    Which country out of the following has the highest deforestation rate by 2018?

    • A.

      China

    • B.

      Malaysia 

    • C.

      India

    • D.

      North Africa 

    Correct Answer
    B. Malaysia 
    Explanation
    Malaysia has the highest deforestation rate by 2018. This can be attributed to several factors such as the expansion of palm oil plantations, illegal logging, and infrastructure development. The demand for palm oil, which is widely used in various industries, has led to the clearing of vast areas of forests in Malaysia. Additionally, weak enforcement of environmental regulations and corruption have also contributed to the high deforestation rate in the country.
