    What Were the Physical Characteristics of the Neanderthal Man (Homo Sapiens)

    • A.

      Small Brain, Small Jaw

    • B.

      Large Eybrow Ridge, Big Skull, Short Stocky & Large Nose

    • C.

      Small Nose, Small Eyebrow Ridge, Small Skull

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer

    What were some of the social behaviors of the Homo Sapiens?

    • A.

      Lived in Pits

    • B.

      Lived in the rainforest

    • C.

      Lived in Caves during in the Ice Age

    Correct Answer
    C. Lived in Caves during in the Ice Age
    Explanation
    During the Ice Age, Homo sapiens lived in caves as a social behavior. This was likely due to the harsh environmental conditions outside, such as extreme cold and lack of resources. Caves provided shelter, protection, and warmth, allowing them to survive in such challenging circumstances. Living in caves also facilitated social interaction and cooperation among Homo sapiens, as they could gather together in a central location for safety and support. This behavior demonstrates their ability to adapt and form social groups, which would have been crucial for their survival during this time.

    What was something in common for the Neanderthals and the Cro-Magnon Man?

    • A.

      Ice Age

    • B.

      Rainforests

    • C.

      Deep Eye Sockets

    Correct Answer
    A. Ice Age
    Explanation
    The Neanderthals and the Cro-Magnon Man both lived during the Ice Age. This period of time, also known as the Pleistocene epoch, lasted from about 2.6 million to 11,700 years ago and was characterized by lower temperatures and extensive glaciation. The harsh environmental conditions during the Ice Age likely influenced the physical characteristics and adaptations of both species, as they had to survive in cold and challenging environments. Therefore, the Ice Age is something that they had in common.

    The Homo Habilis was 4-5" tall.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is incorrect. Homo habilis, an early human species, was actually around 4-5 feet tall, not inches. They were larger in size compared to their predecessors and had an average height similar to modern humans.

  • 6. 

    The Australopithecus lived in Rainforests.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The Australopithecus lived in rainforests. This is supported by fossil evidence and the analysis of their skeletal structure, which suggests that they were adapted to arboreal life in forested environments. Additionally, the presence of Australopithecus fossils in areas that were once rainforests further supports this claim. Therefore, it can be concluded that the statement is true.

    The Neanderthal Man didn't wear clothing.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "The Neanderthal Man didn't wear clothing" is false. Archaeological evidence suggests that Neanderthals did wear clothing, as they lived in cold environments during the Ice Age. The discovery of tools used for making clothing, such as bone needles, and the presence of wear patterns on animal bones indicate that Neanderthals used animal hides to make clothing for protection and warmth. Additionally, genetic studies have shown that Neanderthals possessed the same gene variants as modern humans related to hair and skin pigmentation, which suggests that they had similar adaptations for clothing.

    What Technology did the Cro-Magnon Man use?

    • A.

      Harpoons, Bone Tools, Fishnets and Needles

    • B.

      Spears, Stones

    • C.

      Choppers & Bone Breakers

    • D.

      Bamboo, Rocks & Fire

    Correct Answer
    A. Harpoons, Bone Tools, Fishnets and Needles
    Explanation
    The Cro-Magnon Man used harpoons, bone tools, fishnets, and needles as technology. These tools and implements were essential for their survival and daily activities. Harpoons were used for fishing and hunting, bone tools were used for various tasks such as cutting and scraping, fishnets were used for catching fish, and needles were used for sewing and making clothing. These technologies allowed the Cro-Magnon Man to adapt and thrive in their environment.

    Why was the Neanderthal Man considered to be unintelligent?

    • A.

      They have a big nose

    • B.

      They have a big skull but not a big brain

    • C.

      They are very short

    • D.

      They have a big brain

    Correct Answer
    B. They have a big skull but not a big brain
    Explanation
    The Neanderthal Man was considered to be unintelligent because they had a big skull but not a big brain. This suggests that although their skulls were large, the actual brain size was relatively small compared to modern humans. Brain size is often associated with intelligence, so the smaller brain size of Neanderthals led to the assumption that they were less intelligent.

    The Home Erectus was the "upright man"

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The Home Erectus, also known as Homo erectus, was indeed the "upright man." This species of early human ancestors lived approximately 1.9 million to 143,000 years ago and is known for its ability to walk fully upright on two legs. This characteristic is one of the defining features of Homo erectus and marks an important milestone in human evolution.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because Homo habilis did not have access to bamboo. While they did use rocks as tools, there is no evidence to suggest that they used fire.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    How many years ago were the Homo Habilis living?

      1.8 Million Years ago

    • D.

      40,000 years ago

    Correct Answer
    C. 1.8 Million Years ago
    Explanation
    Homo Habilis, an early species of human, lived approximately 1.8 million years ago. This is determined through the study of fossils and archaeological evidence, which provide insights into the timeline of human evolution. The other options, 2.5 million years ago, 28,000 years ago, and 40,000 years ago, do not align with the known timeline of Homo Habilis existence.

    Charlis Darwin was an English natural scientist who formulated a theory of evolution by natural selection (1809-1882)

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Charles Darwin was indeed an English natural scientist who formulated the theory of evolution by natural selection. His groundbreaking work, "On the Origin of Species," published in 1859, revolutionized our understanding of the natural world and remains one of the most influential scientific books ever written. Darwin's theory proposed that species evolve over time through a process of natural selection, where individuals with advantageous traits are more likely to survive and reproduce. This theory has since been widely accepted and forms the basis of modern evolutionary biology. Therefore, the statement "True" accurately reflects Darwin's contributions to science.

    Humans and other creatures that walk upright are?

    • A.

      Creationists

    • B.

      Hominids

    • C.

      Australopithecus

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Hominids
    Explanation
    Hominids is the correct answer because it refers to humans and other creatures that walk upright. This term encompasses various species, including Australopithecus, which is a type of hominid. Creationists, on the other hand, are individuals who believe in the literal interpretation of religious texts regarding the origin of life, and this term does not specifically refer to creatures that walk upright. Therefore, the correct answer is Hominids.
