  • 1. 

    Which of the two are better suited for land Amphibians or Reptiles?

    • A.


    • B.


    Correct Answer
    B. Reptiles
    Reptiles are better suited for land than amphibians because they have adaptations that allow them to thrive in terrestrial environments. Unlike amphibians, reptiles have scales that help prevent water loss and protect their bodies from the harsh conditions of the land. They also have more efficient respiratory systems, which enable them to breathe air more effectively. Additionally, reptiles have stronger limbs and are generally better equipped for movement on land compared to amphibians, which are more adapted to aquatic or semi-aquatic lifestyles.

      A Turtle, snake or other reptile.

    Correct Answer
    B. A Turtle, snake or other reptile.
    The correct answer is A Turtle, snake or other reptile. This is because ectotherms are animals that rely on external sources of heat to regulate their body temperature. Reptiles, such as turtles and snakes, are ectotherms as they cannot generate their own body heat and instead rely on the environment to warm their bodies. Birds and mammals, on the other hand, are endotherms, meaning they can generate their own body heat internally.

    Correct Answer
    Most birds have lost the ability to fly. This is because they have evolved in different environments and adapted to various lifestyles. Some birds, such as penguins and ostriches, have evolved to be flightless due to their aquatic or terrestrial habitats. These birds have developed other means of locomotion, such as swimming or running, to compensate for their inability to fly. Additionally, certain bird species that live on islands with no natural predators have lost their ability to fly as they do not need to escape from danger. Overall, the loss of flight in most birds is a result of evolutionary adaptation to their specific environments and lifestyles.
