Chapter 8 Lessons 1 And 2 Test - Quiz

This is the first time I am trying out this online testing option. My hope here is that students will be more comfortable taking the test at home because it is a less restrictive environment. If this test goes well, we make be doing other assessments online as well.
Students are reminded that they are to follow the same rules that they would follow in class to take a test. Students are not permitted to use notes or the internet to find answers. Students are not allowed to ask parents or sibilings Read moreto help either. This test is to be completed by the student only using only the students own knowledge of the material.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The earth has two different kinds of natural resources they are:

    • A.

      Man made and nature made

    • B.

      Man made and machine made

    • C.

      Renewable and non-renewable

    • D.

      Renewable and reusable

    Correct Answer
    C. Renewable and non-renewable
    Explanation
    The correct answer is renewable and non-renewable. Natural resources are categorized into these two types based on their ability to replenish over time. Renewable resources are those that can be naturally replenished, such as solar energy, wind energy, and water. Non-renewable resources, on the other hand, are finite and cannot be replenished once depleted, such as fossil fuels like coal, oil, and natural gas. This classification is important in understanding the sustainability and long-term availability of resources for human use.

  • 2. 

    One natural resource that we talked about in class that is slowly running out is

    • A.

      Trees

    • B.

      Water

    • C.

      Air

    • D.

      Fossil fuels

    Correct Answer
    D. Fossil fuels
    Explanation
    Fossil fuels are a non-renewable resource that is being depleted at a rapid rate. These fuels, such as coal, oil, and natural gas, are formed from the remains of ancient plants and animals that were buried and subjected to heat and pressure over millions of years. However, human consumption of fossil fuels far exceeds their rate of formation, leading to their depletion. As a result, fossil fuels are considered to be slowly running out, making it crucial to find alternative sources of energy.

    Fossil fuels are actually

    • A.

      Dead plants and animals

    • B.

      Melted rocks

    • C.

      Liquid sand

    • D.

      Watered down soil

    Correct Answer
    A. Dead plants and animals
    Explanation
    Fossil fuels are formed from the remains of dead plants and animals that have been buried and subjected to high pressure and heat over millions of years. This process transforms the organic matter into substances like coal, oil, and natural gas. These fuels are considered fossil because they are derived from ancient organic materials that have undergone significant geological processes.

    In class, we decided that a great example to compare soil to would be a giant

    • A.

      Diaper

    • B.

      Hamper

    • C.

      Coffee filter

    • D.

      Can

    Correct Answer
    C. Coffee filter
    Explanation
    A coffee filter is a great example to compare soil to because both act as a filter. Just like a coffee filter separates the coffee grounds from the liquid, soil filters out impurities and allows water and nutrients to pass through. Additionally, both coffee filters and soil are porous, allowing for proper drainage and aeration.

    Soil is a natual resource that is made up of

    • A.

      Clay and stones

    • B.

      Trees and leaves

    • C.

      Dirt and mud

    • D.

      Minerals and small rocks

    Correct Answer
    D. Minerals and small rocks
    Explanation
    Soil is a natural resource that is composed of minerals and small rocks. These components provide essential nutrients and support for plant growth. Minerals in the soil, such as potassium, phosphorus, and nitrogen, are crucial for plants' development and overall health. Small rocks in the soil contribute to its texture and structure, allowing for proper water drainage and root penetration. Therefore, minerals and small rocks are vital elements that make up soil and play a significant role in sustaining plant life.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Soil that forms from the bedrock underneath it is referred to as

    • A.

      Rock soil

    • B.

      Residual soil

    • C.

      Transported soil

    • D.

      Salty soil

    Correct Answer
    B. Residual soil
    Explanation
    Residual soil refers to the soil that forms directly from the weathering and decomposition of the underlying bedrock. This process occurs over a long period of time, where the rock gradually breaks down into smaller particles, forming the soil. Unlike transported soil, which is carried and deposited by external agents like wind or water, residual soil remains in the same location where the bedrock is located. Salty soil, on the other hand, is characterized by high salt content and is not necessarily formed from the underlying bedrock. Therefore, the correct answer is residual soil.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Soil that has minerals that are different from those in the soil below in the bedrock is referred to as

    • A.

      Rock soil

    • B.

      Residual soil

    • C.

      Transported soil

    • D.

      Salty soil

    Correct Answer
    C. Transported soil
    Explanation
    Transported soil refers to soil that has been moved from its original location by natural processes such as wind, water, or ice. In this case, the soil has minerals that are different from those in the bedrock below, indicating that it has been transported from another area. This could have happened through erosion and deposition, where the soil was carried away from its source and deposited in a different location. Therefore, the term "transported soil" is the most appropriate description for this situation.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    That part of the soil that is the most rich in nutrients and is often brought into gardens for planting is

    • A.

      Subsoil

    • B.

      Black soil

    • C.

      Top soil

    • D.

      Bottom soil

    Correct Answer
    C. Top soil
    Explanation
    Top soil is the correct answer because it is the uppermost layer of soil that contains the highest concentration of organic matter and nutrients, making it ideal for plant growth. This layer is often brought into gardens for planting because it provides a fertile environment for plants to thrive. Subsoil is the layer beneath top soil and is generally less fertile. Black soil and bottom soil are not specific terms used to describe soil layers, therefore they are not the correct answers.

  • 11. 

    Farmers often protect the nutrients in their soil by doing what to their crops each season...

    • A.

      Rotating them

    • B.

      Not planting them at all

    • C.

      Using fertilizers

    • D.

      Using extra water

    Correct Answer
    A. Rotating them
    Explanation
    Farmers often protect the nutrients in their soil by rotating their crops each season. Crop rotation is a practice where farmers grow different crops in the same field in a planned sequence. This helps to prevent the depletion of specific nutrients in the soil as different crops have different nutrient requirements. By rotating crops, farmers can ensure that the soil remains fertile and balanced, reducing the need for excessive fertilizers and maintaining the overall health of the soil.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    One of the best ways to help save the nutrients in the soil is to not over farm the land which is known as

    • A.

      Conserving

    • B.

      Producing

    • C.

      Developing

    • D.

      Reserving

    Correct Answer
    A. Conserving
    Explanation
    Conserving is the best way to help save the nutrients in the soil. Over farming the land can deplete the nutrients in the soil, leading to decreased fertility and productivity. By practicing conservation methods such as crop rotation, cover cropping, and reducing the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, the nutrients in the soil can be preserved and replenished naturally. This helps to maintain the long-term health and sustainability of the soil, ensuring that it can continue to support plant growth and provide essential nutrients for future crops.
