    Explanation
    Farmers would domesticate animals before machines because some strong animals could help pull plows across farming fields. This would make the task of plowing the fields much easier and more efficient for the farmers. Additionally, animals could also be used for transportation, carrying heavy loads, and providing other necessary services on the farm. Therefore, domesticating animals was a practical and beneficial choice for farmers in order to increase productivity and ease their workload.

    It is a good idea to try to domesticate a wild animal.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Domesticating a wild animal is not a good idea because wild animals are not suited for living in human environments. They have specific needs and behaviors that cannot be easily met or changed. Domestication requires generations of selective breeding and even then, the animal may still retain some wild instincts. It is safer and more ethical to leave wild animals in their natural habitats where they can thrive and fulfill their natural roles in the ecosystem.
